3rd Grade Science Quizzes & Trivia

There are two types of change in matter: physical change and chemical change. As the names suggest, physical changes affect physical properties, and chemical changes affect chemical properties. Test out your understanding of the processes involved in these changes by taking up the test below. Keep revising on the ones you don’t get!
