Properties of Materials - Chapter Summary
In this engaging chapter on the properties of materials, our instructors present you with the definition of a metal and examples of both solutions and mixtures. Additional lessons explain how to compare mass in solutions and what temperature is. After reviewing this chapter, you should be ready to:
- Explain the rules of solubility
- Detail how filtration works
- Describe what happens when fossil fuels are burned
- Measure temperature
Even the most challenging subjects are easy to understand with our professionally-designed lessons. Review only the topics that you need to study or work through the entire chapter as a more comprehensive test prep exercise. Each multiple-choice quiz helps you measure your understanding so you know whether to go back and review or move on to other subjects.

1. What is a Metal? - Lesson for Kids
If something shiny has ever caught your eye, chances are it was made of metal! In this lesson, learn about different types of metals and the special characteristics of metals.
2. Mixtures & Solutions Lesson for Kids: Definitions & Examples
Mixtures and solutions are all over the place, you just have to know what you are looking for to find them. Learn how to define mixture and solution, as well as identify real-world examples of both.
3. Solubility Lesson for Kids: Definition & Rules
Certain chemicals are able to dissolve into other chemicals because of a property called solubility. In this lesson, we'll explore solubility and its different levels and limits.
4. Filtration Definition: Lesson for Kids
In this lesson, you'll learn about a process called filtration. You'll explore the different types of filtration and find out about ways to remove solids from a liquid.
5. Comparing Mass in Solutions: Lesson for Kids
The mass in a solution can be compared using concentrations. In this lesson, you will learn how to determine the mass of a solvent in a solution using density, mass, and volume.
6. Fossil Fuel Facts: Lesson for Kids
Fossil fuel is old, like a fossil. Fossil fuel is the decomposed remains of plants and animals that have been converted to fuel. Learn why fossil fuels are a type of nonrenewable energy, and what happens when they're burned.
7. Temperature Definition: Lesson for Kids
Whether it's a bite of hot soup, the cool waters of the ocean, or a fever when we are sick, temperature is a part of our everyday lives. In this lesson, you'll learn all about temperature.
8. Measuring Temperature: Lesson for Kids
You shiver when it is cold outside and sweat when it is hot outside, but how can you measure those weather temperatures? And did you know there are even other types of temperatures that can be measured? This lesson looks at all kinds of interesting temperature facts.
