  • Can you explain the 2 characteristics that all matter has?
  • Can you name and give examples of the 3 states of matter? 
  • Can you compare the differences between the 3 states of matter with reference to shape and volume?
  • Can you use the kinetic molecular theory (KMT) to explain the 3 states of matter?
  • Can you use the KMT to explain what happens during thermal expansion and thermal contraction?
  • Can you explain the difference tween thermal energy, heat and temperature?
  • Can you use the KMT to explain the changes of states of matter?
  • Can you name the 6 changes of states of matter and recognize examples and/ or provide examples of each?
