Describing Physical Properties of Matter
By Cindy Grigg
  

1     Look around you. You see many different things. You may see rock. You may see metal. You may see paper. You may see plastics. We call these things matter. Matter is everything around us.
 
2     You know that these things are different. Rock is not like paper. Metal is not like plastic. Different things have different physical properties -- the things we can see, touch, or sometimes even taste or smell. Color, size, and texture are just three physical properties. There are many more.
 
3     Physical properties can be used to describe an object. Texture is the way something feels when you touch it. Paper feels smooth. Sandpaper feels rough. Rough and smooth describe texture. Other words are used to describe other physical properties. Rocks are hard. Some things can float. Some things are stretchy. Some things feel hard. Some things feel soft.
