Science Games for Kids: Solids, Liquids and Gases

Learn about solids, liquids and gases as you experiment with the conditions that change them from one form to another in this fun, interactive science activity. Water is a common example as it exists in all three forms, you’ve no doubt seen it as ice, liquid water and steam. Challenge yourself to find the correct category for other examples such as milk, sand, rain, helium, wood and air. Watch what happens when you heat liquids and cool gases. The processes that change solids, liquids and gases from one form to another are important science topics, humans breathe in gases in the form of air and drink liquids such as water which help keep us alive. Educational and entertaining, this game offers a fun challenge for kids.

Part(icles) of Your World: Crash Course Kids #3.2

Have you ever heard the phrase, "You look like a Million Bucks?" Well, you do... but you also look like a million particles. In this episode, Sabrina talks to us about matter and particles and that all matter is made up of particles. Also, she shows us how matter can change states from a solid to a liquid, a liquid to a gas, a gas to a solid, or a liquid to a solid.

States of Matter

This video is used by docents at CMA to show how glass can change from solid to fluid and back again. The artists at Jason Antol Studios in Columbus, Ohio, graciously performed the demonstrations on camera.
The 10-second on-screen countdowns allow visitors a chance to answer each question.
As used in the exhibition Chihuly Illuminated, the video is silent. Here it's presented with background music.


Changing water- States of matter

Did you know that water is the only thing on earth that naturally occurs as a solid, liquid and gas?
This 5 minute video gives an entertaining and visual explanation of the three main states of matter and describes how water constantly moves through these states in the natural water cycle.

Why does ice float?

Why does ice float? You might not think about it, but this special property of frozen water is what makes your iced tea tinkle and makes a lot of aquatic life possible. Hank gets in touch with his inner Olaf to explain the wonder that is ice.


Why does ice float in water? - George Zaidan and Charles Morton

Water is a special substance for several reasons, and you may have noticed an important one right in your cold drink: ice. Solid ice floats in liquid water, which isn't true for most substances. But why? George Zaidan and Charles Morton explain the science behind how how hydrogen bonds keep the ice in your glass (and the polar ice caps) afloat.
