Chemistry for Kids
"Chemistry is the branch of science that
studies the properties of matter and how matter
interacts with energy. Chemistry is considered a
physical science and is closely related to
physics. Sometimes chemistry is called the
"central science" because it is an
important part of other major sciences such as
biology, Earth science, and physics. Scientists
who specialize in chemistry are called chemists.

"The plants and
animals that are found in a particular location
are referred to as an ecosystem. These plants and
animals depend on each other to survive. In a
