Why does Matter, Matter?

The three basic properties of matters are Volume, Mass, and Shape

All matter is made up of tiny particles called Atoms

Volume is the amount of Space that matter takes up

Mass is the amount of matter an object has

Liquid takes the shape of their Container 

Gas do not have a definite shape of volume

Liquid do not have a definite shape, but they do have a definite volume

Solid have a definite shape and volume

A Ice and Chair are examples of solids

Milk and Juice are examples of liquids.

Helium and Oxygen are examples of gas

Solid ice is melting when it's changing into a liquid.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This morning we did some science on Matter. Volume, Mass, and Shape, it all leads up to Solid, Gas, and Liquid. Solid: The atoms in a solid are packed closely together they bond together and not change shape. Liquid: The atoms in a liquid are close together, they slide around. Gas: The atoms in a gas are spread out and move freely.

This term we are working on fractions, today we worked on 'Converting Fractions to Decimals' and 'Converting Decimals to fractions' Some of it, I found easy, but some of it, i didn't. The last 2 slides were really hard, so I deleted them, because we had a choice of doing the levels you now, I completed Level 1 and 2 out of 3, if you'd like to see what I did, please go through the slides, thank you!.
