For the next few weeks, we will be exploring matter. We will be differentiating between elements, compounds, and molecules. Measuring matter will lead us to exciting hands-on labs where will be looking at the mass, volume, and density of a wide variety of items. We will be separating mixtures into substances, and utilizing our last unit of the scientific method to complete it. At the end of this unit, we will become reacquainted with photosynthesis and begin looking at the process from a molecular point of view.
