Learning about Matter in Year 4 Science
August 9, 2019
This test period in Year 4 Science, students begin to study some of the basic components of Chemistry through studying about matter. That is, what is matter, and why is it in many different forms, like solid, liquid and gas?
We have many experiments in the Ave Maria Building Science Labs. Students learn some basic skills of measuring, both mass and volume. These skills will be used again and again as they learn science all throughout their life.
In addition, they have been seeing that although solid, liquid and gas are quite different, they do have some properties that are the same, which is that they have mass, and they occupy space.
Now we will go on to learn what makes them different. More science lab experiments to come!
