Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).



This lesson, using online video resources (YouTube videos and Khan Academy), PowerPoint presentations, science demonstrations, and online simulations, allows the students to grasp a full understanding of the phases of matter, physical and chemical changes, and distinguish between different characteristics of matter, including mass, volume, and weight.

Learning Targets: 
Distinguish between chemical and physical changes
Identify the phases of matter: solid, liquid, and gas
Identify and describe properties of matter, including; flexibility, strength, transparency, hardness, water resistance, size, color, weight, and texture
