### Mass, Matter, Volume

Find an object in your room. Is it made of matter? It is, because all things that you can touch are made of matter. Mass is a measure of the amount of matter, and volume measures how much space the object takes up. Find the mass and volume of your object. You can find the volume of your item by measuring its sides, then using your knowledge of geometric shapes to find its volume. You can find the mass of an object with a scale.

### Creative Applications

1. Does everything made of matter have a mass and volume?

2. Are all things that can be sensed by a human made of matter? (Hint: is heat made of matter?)
