(1.5A) Physical Properties of Matter
The student will classify objects by observable properties of the materials from which they are made such as larger and smaller, heavier and lighter, shape, color, and texture.
Several important concepts are embedded within this TEKS objective. Each concept is presented on its own page (see links below).
Students learn about how primary colors mix together to form secondary colors so they can better understand color as an observable property of materials.
Students compare two objects to explore size and mass as observable properties of objects.
By practicing pattern recognition and classification students explore the shape property of materials.
Students explore, describe, and classify different textures to better understand this property of materials.
