Matter for Minors is an introduction to observation and investigation. Using a discovery approach, students investigate the three states of matter (solids, liquids and gases) and learn the properties and vocabulary related to each. Features four individual experiments on solids, liquids, gasses, and matter & change. Includes numerous brightly colored solids for sorting and classifying and the chemicals and materials required for exploring states of matter and changes in matter. Includes tests with answer keys. Allow 45 - 60 minutes for each of the four lab investigations. Designed for 24 students working in six groups of three to five. Required, but not included: hot plate, ice cubes, and assorted containers.
