Here are a list of resources to help you with your learning experience for matter standard
S8P1. Students will examine the scientific view of the nature of matter.


What are Mixtures and Solutions? A MIXTURE is a combination of two or more substances that are not chemically united and do not exist in fixed proportions to each other. Most natural substances are mixtures. In the graphic on the left there are four substances - water, alcohol, oil, and food color dye.

Properties and Changes of Properties in Matter

A substance has characteristic properties, such as density, a boiling point, and solubility. * Substances react chemically in characteristic ways with other substances to form new substances (compounds) with different properties. In chemical reactions mass is conserved. * Chemical elements do not break down during normal laboratory reactions.

ChemBalancer & Element Quiz - Home

Welcome to Chembalancer and Element Quiz! These are little games that teach you about facts about elements and how to balance equations. There are four games to play: Element quiz - Element quiz teaches the names of the elements, their symbols, and some interesting facts about them.

Chemical and Physical Change Module

Software Agreement Grade and Content Area: 6th Grade - Physical Science Students view examples of chemical and physical change and are asked to identify which change they observe. Atoms

Atoms are building blocks. If you want to create a language, you'll need an alphabet. If you want to build proteins, you will need amino acids. If you want to build molecules, you will need atoms of different elements. Each element is a little bit different from the rest.
