This week I uploaded a new TPT product titled: ‘Solids, Liquids, and Gas: A Matter Unit’ to my TPT store. Can you guess what this product is about? You’re right, it’s all about the science of matter! This 52 page product is packed full of activities, posters, hand outs, and science experiments that help teach the subject of matter in a fun and hands-on way.
Below are a few examples of a few of the hands on activities you can find in my newest unit. Each of these experiments include a directions pages and a hand out with an emphasis on questioning, predicting, doing, and what happened...
To give you a sneak peak at some of the hands-on activities in this unit I have included some of the directions and pictures of a few of the matter experiments found in this product.
First is the root beer float experiment which shows students an example of a solid, liquid, and gas in one experiment.
The next experiment is all about watching liquid turn into a solid when turning cream into butter. This experiment is a fun and hands-on way to learn about solids and liquids, and this experiment is also great conversation starter about chemical changes because once the cream turns into butter it cannot be changed back, therefore a chemical change has occurred. For this experiment I have included directions and a graphic organizer where students can make predictions and document the progress of cream to butter with illustrations.
During this simple experiment you can show the class how water can be a solid, liquid, and a gas with ice, warm water, and a kettle.
You can find these and other fabulous activities and printables in my newest TPT unit: 'Solids, Liquids, and Gases: A Matter Unit'.
