THREE KEY ELEMENTS

Science Content

Big Ideas:

1.

All living and nonliving things are composed of matter.

2.

Matter has characteristic properties that distinguish one substance from another (independent of size or amount of substance).

3.

4.

Chromatography is a technique that separates substances and mixtures.

Capillary action is the tendency of a liquid to move upwards in paper (medium). The movement is a result of the molecules interacting with each other in liquids (solvent) and solids (medium, test substance).

Key Science Terms: matter, solid, liquid, molecules, force, capillary action, gravity, cohesion, adhesion, properties, chromatography, test substance, medium, solvent, system

Scientific Thinking: observing, comparing, classifying, predicting, reasoning, making claims and supporting with evidence, formulating conclusions, planning and conducting a controlled experiment.

Science Skills: using a hand lens; using a hand lens; how to create a scientific illustration, written observation, box and T chart, basic conclusion
