Everything in the world is made of matter. Matter is anything that has mass (weight) and occupies space.

Matter can be made up of a group or series of different atoms to form a molecule. These groups of atoms (molecules) are sometimes called compounds. Some types of matter can be broken down to a single atom while still maintaining the properties of the original material. These types of material are called elements.

Matter has three states: Solid, Liquid, and Vapor.
