We’re working to welcome you back through our doors again, from modifying exhibits to reconfiguring our halls. We’re listening to the advice of public health officials, so it’s going to take us a little longer to reopen. We’ve got a comprehensive plan to keep everyone safe. Take a look.

Marvel at the power of chemistry by exploring both physical and chemical changes. Observe a variety of mixtures, solutions and reactions. Have fun with the particle theory of matter.
|3||Demonstrate an understanding of the properties of matter, changes of state, and physical and chemical change|
|2.3||Use scientific inquiry/experimentation skills to investigate changes of state and changes in matter|
|2.4||Use scientific inquiry/experimentation skills to determine how the physical properties of materials make them useful for particular tasks|
|2.5||Use appropriate science and technology vocabulary, including mass, volume, properties, matter, physical/reversible changes, and chemical/irreversible changes, in oral ...communication|
|3.1||Identify matter as everything that has mass and occupies space|
|3.2||Identify properties of solids, liquids, and gases and state examples of each|
|3.3||Explain changes of state in matter and give examples of each|
|3.4||Describe physical changes in matter as changes that are reversible|
|3.5||Describe chemical changes in matter as changes that are irreversible|
|3.6||Explain how changes of state involve the release of heat or the absorption of heat|
|3.7||Identify indicators of a chemical change|
|3.8||Distinguish between a physical change and a chemical change|
|1||Evaluate the social and environmental impacts of the use and disposal of pure substances and mixtures|
|2||Investigate the properties and applications of pure substances and mixtures|
|3||Demonstrate an understanding of the properties of pure substances and mixtures, and describe these characteristics using the particle theory|
|3.1||Distinguish between pure substances and mixtures|
|3.2||State the postulates of the particle theory of matter|
|3.3||Use the particle theory to describe the difference between pure substances (which have identical particles) and mixtures (which have different particles)|
|3.6||Identify the components of a solution|
