From the tiniest grain of sand on the beach to the tallest mountain in the Himalayas, everything in our world is made of matter. In this series of physical science podcasts, middle school students explore the properties and the building blocks of matter as they apply what they have learned in their science class to situations at home. Join us as we watch Miss Whistle and the Whiz Kids discover just how important matter is…Matter Matters!
