Physical & Chemical Properties of Matter Kit

Aldon Corporation

The activities in this kit focus on developing a better understanding of what is matter and what the different types of properties are


The activities in this kit focus on developing a better understanding of what is matter and what the different types of properties are. Students perform a series of experiments focusing on the physical properties of density, smell, color, melting point, boiling point and solubility. Other experiments focus on chemical properties in which students perform a series of reactions as they try and identify an unknown solution. Kit contains enough material for 10 groups. Teacher’s Manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are included.
