Team Oak Science Units: Matter


During this unit, we will be studying what matter is, how it is classified by scientists, and how properties are used to identify different substances.

                                                         Big Ideas

Develop models to describe the atomic composition of simple molecules and extended structures.

Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred.

Develop a model that predicts and describes changes in particle motioin, temperature, and state of a pure substance when thermal energy is added or removed.
