Different kinds of matter exist and many of them can be either solid or liquid, depending on temperature. Matter can be described and classified by its observable properties. (2-PS1-1)
Different properties are suited to different purposes. (2-PS1-2),(2-PS1-3)
A great variety of objects can be built up from a small set of pieces. (2-PS1-3)
Matter of any type can be subdivided into particles that are too small to see, but even then the matter still exists and can be detected by other means. A model showing that gases are made from matter particles that are too small to see & are moving freely around in space can explain many observations, including the inflation & shape of a balloon and the effects of air on larger particles or objects. (5-PS1-1)
The amount (weight) of matter is conserved when it changes form, even in transitions in which it seems to vanish. (5-PS1-2)
