Matter: Properties and Change I can recognize that all mater is made up of atoms. I can recognize that atoms of the same element are similar, but different from atoms of other elements. I can explain the effect of heat on the motion of atoms. I can describe characteristics of particles in different phases. I can compare the physical properties of pure substances that are independent of the amount of mater present (i.e. density, boiling point, melting point, and solubility).
