Pumpkin Properties are a Smash!
Students receive a miniature pumpkin and proceed through several stations to measure a variety of physical properties. The data is entered into a data sheet and the mass and volume measurements are used to calculate density. They also use the information to create different graphs to determine whether there is any correlation between the different physical properties.

Am I Big and Blue or Small and Yellow?
Students explore the concept of physical properties using a Venn diagram. In this classifying lesson, students compare provided objects by shape, size, and color. They then explore collecting and organizing objects of their own. Students are assessed by classifying soil samples at the conclusion of the lesson.

Evidence of Chemical Change
In this chemical change worksheet, students conduct 4 experiments set up around the room. They follow the instructions at each station for each experiment and list the physical properties and observe any changes at each station. Students describe the evidence at each station that a chemical change occurred.

Matters of Milk and Marshmallows
Learners observe a teacher demonstration o classifying matter by its physical properties of shape and size. After discussing the definition of matter, students describe the state of matter. They sing a song to the tune of "Bingo." In groups, learners participate in a marshmallow experiment to explore the study of solids, liquids, and gases.

The Properties of Elements
Young scholars explore the properties of elements. In this beginning chemistry and the three states of matter lesson, students define and identify examples of physical and chemical properties. Young scholars view the Periodic Table and define related vocabulary such as "elements," "atoms," and "chemical properties.

Kindergarten Observing, Comparing and Contrasting
Although this is a science lesson, it can be adapted to help meet Common Core standards in math as well. Starting scientists describe physical properties of objects and explore three forms of water. To address the Common Core, they can compare the length and weight of the objects they are examining.

Physical Properties of Matter
What you will find in this set of slides is an introduction to physical properties of matter. Note that there is a break in the flow of the presentation as slides six through ten explain what mixtures are and how they can be separated. In addition, although there are explanatory pages for characteristics of liquids and solids, no attention is given to gases.
