Change from liquid to solid, that’s called freezing
Dissolve, mixing a solid and liquid completely
Melt, changing from solid to liquid by heating
If you burn my dinner, then I’m not eating

An atom is the basic unit of matter
There are atoms in you, there are atoms in Saturn
When atoms are arranged in different patterns
They make elements like carbon and platinum
Combined elements create a compound
It’s where two or more elements are found
Sugar and salt, even the rain in the clouds
Are compounds, tell your parents, make them proud
A mixture is made from unlike things
Like a salad with tomatoes, croutons, and cheese
Then identify ingredients, separate each
Then classify them based on shared qualities

When something changes form or shape, it’s physical
When new substances are made, that’s chemical
Reactions take place during chemical change
Matter can change states and that’s okay

Let’s talk about characteristics, things that distinguish
Elephants are bigger and stronger than penguins
A property is a quality or function that depends
On whether matter is solid, gas, or liquid
Can it be compressed? Is it magnetic?
Does it have a texture? How can I get it?
Can I pick it up and determine mass and thickness?
Or do I need a glass jar to measure volume and denseness?
Temperature can affect how an object will change
Heat can melt or burn a solid to a liquid state
Or lack of heat can freeze and slow the rate
Of decomposition, how things are broken down and disintegrate

Change from liquid to solid, that’s called freezing
Dissolve, mixing a solid and liquid completely
Melt, changing from solid to liquid by heating
If you burn my dinner, then I’m not eating
When something changes form or shape, it’s physical
When new substances are made, that’s chemical
Reactions take place during chemical change
Matter can change states and that’s okay
