Properties of Matter

Matter is the stuff all around us, and all of it has mass and volume.

Solids, Liquids, and Gases

You know water can be a solid, a liquid, or a gas. So can all kinds of other forms of matter. But how do they change states?

Atoms: Protons, Neutrons, and Electrons

Atoms are everywhere. They are in everything. So what are atoms made of? We have the scoop!

Physical and Chemical Changes of Matter

Matter does not have to stay the same. It has a lot of ways to change its properties. Check it out!


What is your favorite snack when you go hiking? If it is trail mix, then you like to snack on mixtures!

Acids and Bases

Everything in the world is an acid, a base, or neutral. Can you tell which is which? The answer is in the pH!

Elements and Compounds

Mixtures mix, but they stay physically separate. When two or more elements combine on a chemical level, a compound is what you get.

Periodic Table

There are a lot of elements! How do scientists keep it all straight? The periodic table, of course.

Energy and Matter

If you want to make a change in matter, first you have to have the energy!
