Studying the Properties of Matter in 8th Grade Science

This week in 8th Grade science, the students investigated states and properties of matter. It started with looking at different phase changes of matter, including a sublimation demonstration. This was followed by 5 labs in 5 days, including scientifically measuring if air has mass, calculating densities of known and unknown objects, exploring magnetism, electrical conductivity and thermal conductivity of metals and non-metals, along with the solubility of different substances. Students finished the week with a melting/boiling point lab in order to get the data necessary to graph a heating curve based on temperature during phase changes.
