Matter

True or False? Water, clay, rocks and trees are all examples of matter. TRUE

True or False? Matter is anything that takes up space and has mass. TRUE

Can you think of six different properties of matter
Can you think of six different properties of matter? (Hint: One of the properties is “color.”) 1.) color 2.) size 3.) shape 4.) texture 5.) flexibility 6.) luster

These pearls have luster.
What is luster? Luster is how an object shines in the light. A gold ring has luster. A piece of notebook paper does not.

Volume is how much space an object takes up.
Which has the greatest volume? Which has the least volume? What is volume? Volume is how much space an object takes up. A beach ball has more volume than a bowling ball.

Density is how close the particles are packed together in an object.
What is density? Density is how close the particles are packed together in an object. Madison’s lead bar is more dense than the plastic gram stacker that we passed around.

Which is more dense water or oil?

Mass is how much matter is in an object.
What is mass? Mass is how much matter is in an object. A bowling ball has more mass than a beach ball.

Remember: Mass is how much matter is in an object.
Mass and Weight Miss Henry keeps telling me that mass and weight are not the same thing. Why does she keep saying that? Remember: Mass is how much matter is in an object.

Mass and Weight If a cat has a mass of 6 kilograms on earth. It will still have a mass of 6 kilograms on the moon. The matter of the cat doesn’t change. Mass = 6 kilograms Mass = 6 kilograms

Weeeeee! My mass didn’t change. Why can I move like this?
Mass and Weight Have you ever seen astronauts jumping on the moon? They seem to be light as feathers. Their mass didn’t change. Something else changed. What do you think changed? Weeeeee! My mass didn’t change. Why can I move like this? Mass = 6 kilograms Mass = 6 kilograms

Mass and Weight If a cat has a mass of 6 kilograms on earth. It will still have a mass of 6 kilograms on the moon. The matter of the cat doesn’t change. Mass = 6 kilograms Mass = 6 kilograms

GRAVITY CHANGED! Weight depends on gravity.
(In science, weight can be measured in Newtons.) Mass = 6 kilograms Weight = 9 Newtons Mass = 6 kilograms Weight = 58 Newtons
