Structure of Matter S8P1: Students will examine the scientific view of the nature of matter. S8P1a: Distinguish between atoms and molecules. S8P1b: Describe the difference between pure substances (elements and compounds) and mixtures. S8P1c: Describe the movement of particles in solids, liquids, gases, and plasma states. S8P1d: Distinguish between physical and chemical properties of matter as physical (i.e. density, melting point, boiling point) or chemical (i.e. reactivity, combustibility). S8P1e: Distinguish between changes in matter as physical (i.e. physical change) or chemical (i.e. development of a gas, formation of precipitate, and change in color). S8P1f: Recognize that there are more than 100 elements and some have similar properties as shown on the periodic Table of Elements. S8P1g: Identify and demonstrate the Law of Conservation of Matter.
