Physical Properties of Matter: Applications Science Games

In this series of games, your students will learn that matter can be classified by physical properties and those properties can be used to accomplish an intended goal. The Physical Properties of Matter: Applications learning objective — based on NGSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research.

Scroll down for a preview of this learning objective’s games and the concepts.

Concepts Covered

Plan and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties. Analyze data obtained from testing different materials to determine which materials have the properties that are best suited for an intended purpose. Develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem. Recognize that the shape of materials such as paper and clay can be changed by cutting, tearing, crumpling, smashing, or rolling. Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how each performs.
