Most children know how to describe an object -- by color, size and shape. Here they'll learn that all objects are made of matter and that all matter can be described with basic scientific properties -- mass, weight, volume and density. Each of these properties is described using fun, real-life examples. With clear illustrations and hands-on activities, students will gain a basic understanding of the properties of matter. This program is one of 11 volumes in the Physical Science for Children DVD Series in the Schlessinger Science Library. Part of the Schlessinger Science Library for Children Collection. This title correlates to the National Science Education Standards for Physical Science -- properties of objects and materials, position and motion of objects, and light, heat, electricity and magnetism. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online. 23 minutes. Grades K to 4.
