Learning Intention: Demonstrate my understanding of Particle Theory
Name the four states of matter?
Particle theory states that all matter is made of small particles that cannot be seen. These particles are constantly moving and are attracted to each other and repelled by each other. The behavior of these particles explain why materials have different properties, such as heat and electricity.
Particle Theory: Exploring the Smallest Bits of Matter
The Particle Theory states that all matter is made up of tiny particles that are too small to be seen. These particles are constantly moving and can't be destroyed. Matter is made up of three different states of particles: solids, liquids, and gases. Each of these states have different properties that make them unique. The Particle Theory explains that matter can be changed from one state to another. For example, water can be changed from a liquid to a solid (ice) or a gas (steam).

What is the smallest particle of an element?
What is the smallest particle of a compound?
What is the smallest particle of a mixture?
The particle theory states that matter is made up of tiny particles. Particles are so small that they can only be seen using a special type of microscope. The particles that make up matter are constantly moving and bouncing off of each other. The particles that make up matter are invisible to the naked eye and can be as small as a billionth of a meter.
