Properties of Matter

The Properties of Matter Concept Builder probes the difference between solids, liquids, and gases and the reasons for why some samples of matter flow. The Concept Builder consists of 35 total questions organized into 12 different Question Groups and spread across three Activities. In the first activity, What Am I?, learners are presented with a statement about a sample of matter and must identify the sample as being either a solid, liquid, or a gas (or more than one). In the second activity, Matching Pairs, learners are presented with eight terms which they must match as pairs based on similarity of meaning. The activity includes two matching pair exercises. In the third activity, Two Truths and a Lie, learners are presented with three statements about fluids; two are true and one is false. Students must identify the false statement. Question-specific help is provided for each of the 12 situations. Use of this Concept Builder with our Task Tracker system allows teachers to track student progress.
