  • UNIT OVERVIEW

     

    Unit 4 ---Science Energy and Properties of Matter

    In this unit students explore the many forms of energy, energy on the move and energy transformations. Students will inquire into the behavior of light energy, including the reflection and color of light. They investigate matter as solids, liquids and gases and are introduced to the concept of matter being made of small particles (atoms and molecules).
