Different states of matter have different characteristics
and properties.
What are the three states of matter?
What are the characteristics of the states of matter?

## S3.C.1.1.1 Describe matter in terms of its observable

properties (e.g., weight, mass, shape, size, color,
texture, state).
S3.C.1.1.2 Classify matter using observable physical
properties (e.g., weight, mass, shape, size, color,
texture, state).
S3.C.1.1.3 Classify a substance as a solid, liquid, or gas.

## Students will be able to verbally identify the three

states of matter through discussion.
Students will be able to verbally describe the different
states of matter through discussion.

Procedure

CK
Activating Prior Knowledge
Ask them what the three states of matter and discuss
them.

I will give the students balloons filled with a solid object,
water, and air and let them describe characteristics of
each.

## Big Idea Statement

There are three different states of matter (move to top
page)
They all have different characteristics that are unique
Essential Questions Statement
What do solids feel like?
What do liquids feel like?
What does a gas feel like?
Objective Statement
Students will be able to identify three states of matter
Students will be able to distinguish between the different
states of matter by matching 8 out of 10 of the objects
to the correct state of matter on the worksheet.
Transition
I will have students go from one activity to the next by
calling them by tables.
Key Vocabulary

State of matter
PreAssessment of Students
KWL chart about the states of matter.
Modeling of the Concept
I will let the students see the different balloons and let
them describe the characteristics of each balloon.
Guiding the Practice
I will give the students a KWL chart about solids liquids
and gasses.

## I will show the balloons to the students and ask them to

guess what is inside of each.
I will give the students the balloons to observe and feel.
I will ask them to describe what the balloons felt like.
I will discuss characteristics of solids, liquids, and
gasses.
We will watch a video on the different states of matter.
I will give the students pictures to put up on the
interactive bulletin and they will be able to put pictures
up.
Students will individually work on the matching sheet
and match the pictures with the states of matter.
We will then discuss the activities and states of matter.
Providing the Independent Practice
Students will complete the matching worksheet
independently.
