Matter Close-Up is an engaging series designed to support FOSS (Full Option Science System) Physical Science: Solids and Liquids and Measuring Matter modules. This series introduces readers to the three states of matter and identifies the properties that make each state unique. Readers discover how matter can change from one state to another by melting, freezing, evaporation, and condensation. Clear text, vivid photographs, and engaging questions and experiments encourage young readers to observe, describe, and measure the states of matter.
Series highlights include: • Text-dependent questions encourage children to read with purpose and extract meaning from text • Hands-on experiments reinforce concepts and extend learning • A list of resources, including books and age-appropriate websites, encourage further learning • How do we measure matter? supports science and math standards by incorporating data collection and graphing skills
