Understanding this concept:

a. Students know objects can be described in terms of the materials they are made of (e.g., clay, cloth, paper) and their physical properties (e.g., color, size, shape, weight, texture, flexibility, and attraction to magnets, floating and sinking).

What is matter?

Here is a fun song you can use to learn about these states of matter.

Matter is everything we see around the world. There are 3 states of matter you need to become familiar with. The first state of matter is Solid, the second state is Liquid, and the last state of matter is Gas.

Gas

A gas takes on size and shape of container. There are various examples we see of gas in our daily lives.

Liquid

A liquid doesn’t have a definite shape and takes on the shape of its container.

Solid

A solid has its own shape and size. The shape doesn't change even when moved. Solids have distinct features that help you identify it as that state of matter.
