Morning Advisory Block:
Grade 8 Agenda:
Take out your copy of PHYSICAL PROPERTIES SCIENCE NOTEBOOK
Complete the chapter reading and PHYSICAL PROPERTIES SCIENCE NOTEBOOK
REVIEW YESTERDAY’S WORK
characteristics of matter that can be observed or measured without changing the identity of the matter
STATES OF MATTER
solid, liquid, gas
particle arrangement and motion varies with temperature
SIZE DEPENDENT PROPERTIES
PROPERTIES THAT VARY WITH THE AMOUNT OR SIZE OF A SAMPLE
mass – the amount of matter in an object
volume – the amount of space occupied by an object
length, width, circumference, etc. – the distance between two points
THESE ARE PROPERTIES OF AN OBJECT – NOT A SUBSTANCE
SIZE INDEPENDENT PROPERTIES
properties that do not change even when the size of a sample is changed
these are properties of the substance – not the sample
melting and boiling point
density - the ratio between the mass and volume of a sample
this is a constant for each substance
conductivity – how well a substance conducts heat or electricity
solubility – the ability of one substance to dissolve in another

Afternoon Advisory Block:
Grade 7 Agenda:
Pass back and go over Quiz
Determining the Accuracy of Scientific Instruments Lab
Set up Lab Notes as follows:
Start with a fresh page in your notebooks.
At the top write the title and date of this lab
Make a data table with 76 columns and 9 rows. Make each row at least 2 lines tall and the six columns equally wide.
Label the columns with the following headings from left to right.
Major Calibration Marks
Minor Calibration Marks
Follow the instructions I give in lab and use this table to collect data for our discussion.
