Matter is all around us. It can be as small as the particles that make up the tiniest cell in our skin or as large as the whole galaxy. Anything that takes up space and has mass is called matter. The matter that we exerience every day and the matter that we are made of is only a tiny fraction of the matter that exists in the universe. By investigating and understanding matter scientists are able to find out more about the universe and its possibilities.

  1. that everything in the word is made up of matter, the way they can be is
    small or big they still take up matter.

  2. Hi,
    Did you know that in a solid the particles don’t have much energy, they never touch but each particle still vibrates (moves around just a bit). In a liquid the particles use more energy than a solid but still not much.The particles have more space between them allowing them move more. Inside a gas the particles have alot of energy, matter of fact in a gas the particles have massive gaps between them that let them rome all over the galaxy never getting tired!

    • Hi Aly,

      Thank you for your awesome post on the Science blog. I’m sure as we continue our science unit we will be like gas particles and never get tired of learning new and exciting facts.

      • Hi,
        Yes no one should get tired of science because it is what makes up everything and to understand it is understanding our planet and nation.You could ask any question in the world and it would all be apart of science.So I found with a science game we could play if we got the chance.

  3. Hi Miss Convery,
