Soft, slippery, rough, or prickly. All day long, we encounter objects with different textures. Readers are introduced to fundamental concepts of matter and texture. The connection between texture and touch is explored, as well as specific examples of texture in solids and liquids. Fast facts, Words to Know, and detailed full-color images stimulate curiosity and learning. An activity underlines the new concepts and allows readers to experiment. This book correlates directly with the expectation for students to "classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties" in second grade as specified in the Next Generation Science Standards.
