            • Introduction - MST4.E.PS3.Introduction:
              Students should describe, categorize, compare, and measure observable physical properties of matter and objects. Students’ initial efforts in performing these processes may yield simple descriptions and sketches, which may lead to increasingly more detailed drawings and richer verbal descriptions. Things can be done to materials to change their properties, but not all materials respond in the same way to what is done to them. Younger students emphasize physical properties while older students will recognize chemical changes. Appropriate tools can aid students in their efforts.
              • Major Understandings - MST4.E.PS3.2a:
                Matter exists in three states: solid, liquid, gas.
                • solids have a definite shape and volume
                • liquids do not have a definite shape but have a definite volume
                • gases do not hold their shape or volume
              • Major Understandings - MST4.E.PS3.2b:
                Temperature can affect the state of matter of a substance.
              • Major Understandings - MST4.E.PS3.2c:
                Changes in the properties or materials of objects can be observed and described.
