Our States of Matter lesson plan introduces students to basic facts and characteristics of solids, liquids, and gases. During this lesson, students are asked to complete an interactive activity in which they walk through their home and write down examples of solids, liquids, and gases that they see, sharpening their observation skills. Students are also asked to read given sentences and identify if they’re about a solid, liquid or gas in order to demonstrate their ability to differentiate between them.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define and identify the three different states of matter; solid, liquid, and, gas, and list characteristics of each.
