Measure and compare the mass and volume of solids and liquids.

### General Information

Subject Area: Science
Body of Knowledge: Physical Science
Big Idea: Properties of Matter - A. All objects and substances in the world are made of matter. Matter has two fundamental properties: matter takes up space and matter has mass.

B. Objects and substances can be classified by their physical and chemical properties. Mass is the amount of matter (or "stuff") in an object. Weight, on the other hand, is the measure of force of attraction (gravitational force) between an object and Earth.

The concepts of mass and weight are complicated and potentially confusing to elementary students. Hence, the more familiar term of "weight" is recommended for use to stand for both mass and weight in grades K-5. By grades 6-8, students are expected to understand the distinction between mass and weight, and use them appropriately.

Clarification for grades K-2: The use of the more familiar term ‘weight’ instead of the term “mass” is recommended for grades K-2.

Clarification for grades 3-5: In grade 3, introduce the term mass as compared to the term weight. In grade 4, investigate the concept of weight versus mass of objects. In grade 5, discuss why mass (not weight) is used to compare properties of solids, liquids and gases.

#### 3D Modeling

 Name Description SaM-1 3D Printable Figurine and Keychain This resource includes 3D printable files that can be used to bring SaM-1 to life. You can 3D print keychains to give away to your students and/or print a larger version of the figurine to have in the classroom. The 3D printable files are offered in STL format and in print ready format for the Dremel 3D40 printer in case that is the printer you are using. Aso attached are two pictures to show how these printouts look. This is a resource in the Grade 3 Physical Science Unit on Properties. This is a themed unit of SaM-1's adventures at the CPALMS Rehabilitation and Conservation Center.  To see all the lessons in the unit please visit https://www.cpalms.org/page818.aspx .

#### Assessment

 Name Description Grade 3 Physical Science Unit: Properties Assessment Use this summative assessment to assess the students' understanding of the topics presented in within this Grade 3 Physical Science Unit: Properties.  The assessment can either be cumulative or broken into topics presented within the unit. This assessment is part of the CPALMS Grade 3 Physical Science Unit on Properties. This is a themed unit of SaM-1's adventures at the CPALMS Rehabilitation and Conservation Center.  To see all the lessons in the unit please visit https://www.cpalms.org/page818.aspx .

#### Original Student Tutorials

 Name Description Lessons 8 and 9 Video: Mass: Solids and Liquids In this SaM-1 video, students will learn how to measure the mass of solids and liquids using a balance.  Students will learn that they need to subtract the mass of the container the solid or liquid is in to determine the mass of only the solid or liquid. Students will then make observations and sort items based on mass. Physical Science Unit: Water Beach Vacation Lesson 17 Video This SaM-1 video provides the students with the optional "twist" for Lesson 17 and the Model Eliciting Activity (MEA) they have been working on in the Grade 3 Physical Science Unit: Water Beach Vacation.    To see all the lessons in the unit please visit https://www.cpalms.org/page818.aspx. Lesson 13 Video: Introduction to Displacement In this SaM-1 Video, students will learn how to find the volume of irregular objects using a graduated cylinder and the displacement method. Lesson 11 Video: Introduction to Volume In this SaM-1 video, students will learn how to use a graduated cylinder to make observations based on the volume of liquids. Lesson 7 Video: Measuring Mass Help SaM-1 make observations and sort items based on the mass of materials using a triple-beam balance and equal-arm balance. In this video, you will also become familiar with metric units for measuring mass: gram and kilogram.
