Properties of Matter. Physical Science in Action[TM]. Schlessinger Science Library. [Videotape].
Everything in the universe consists of matter. So how can the differences between various types of matter be distinguished? Besides color, shape and size, there are more detailed properties that are used to define matter. Mass, weight, volume and density are all related to tell a great deal about an object or substance. Students will learn about these properties and how scientists use them to describe the world around us. Combining clear graphics, real-life demonstrations and a hands-on activity, these concepts are more clearly illustrated. One of the 16 volumes in the Physical Science in Action series in the Schlessinger Science Library. Part of the Schlessinger Science Library in Action Collection. This title correlates to the National Science Education Standards for Physical Science--properties and changes of properties in matter, motions and forces, and transfer of energy. This program includes a teacher's guide. (Author/MM)
