States of Matter- This file teaches students about solids, liquids, and gases in a fun, creative, and engaging way.
1. States of Matter Sort
Students sort each picture according to their state of matter. There are 32 different clip art images of solids, liquids, and gases to sort. There are also 37 different photographs of solids, liquids, and gases to choose from. Lesson includes answer key, student recording sheet, pictures of the finished project, and colorful posters to display for each state of matter.
2. States of Matter Flip Book
As students learn about each state of matter, they use their flip book to write down the definition, characteristics, and examples of each state of matter. Students will also use paint to illustrate how the atoms move in each state of matter.
3. States of Matter Hands-On Lesson
Students will observe how atoms move in a solid, liquid, and gas state by filling up plastic jars with marbles, which represent the atoms.
4. States of Matter Student Project
Students will have a blast cutting out pictures of solids, liquids, and gases from magazines in this interactive project! Students can complete this for homework or in school. Activity includes a note to send home, detailed directions, a self-reflection rubric for students to fill out upon completion of the project.
5. Does Air Have Mass? PHMPRC Experiment
Young scientists are always amazed to see what happens when you stick a napkin in a cup and submerge it in water! Includes picture of experiment, answer key, and student recording sheet for PHMPRC.
6. Does Matter Take Up Space? PHMPRC Experiment
A simple yet engaging experiment for young scientists to explore how matter takes up space. Includes picture of experiment, answer key, and student recording sheet for PHMPRC.
7. Show and Tell With a Twist of Science
Students will bring one item from home, which represents a state of matter, and hide it inside their baggie. Students will use the physical properties that describe the object by writing a riddle. They will read their riddle to the class and have their classmates guess their mystery matter. Activity includes an example with pictures and directions, a note to go home, and a student recording sheet.
8. Mystery Matter
Gather a variety of different objects that represent different states of matter. One object is placed inside different baggies. Students rotate around to each baggie and use their sense of touch to write about what they observe by feeling the object. Activity includes a student recording sheet, a picture of the activity, and numbers to print and staple on to the different baggies.
9. Properties of Matter Posters
Scientists can explore and investigate properties of matter by using their senses to observe and describe objects. There are two colorful posters for each of the 5 different senses, that you can print and display as you teach about the different properties of matter.
10. Comparing Properties of Matter with Candy
Students use their 5 senses to explore the different physical properties of Skittles and M&M’s.
