Three States of Matter!

Today we learned about the three states of matter! They are solid, liquid, and gas. We also learned about the molecule arrangements of the different states of matter.
A solid has molecules that are very tightly packed together. A solid will not take the shape of its container and has a definite volume.

A liquid has molecules that are loosely arranged. They move quickly and sometimes bump into each other! A liquid will take the shape of its container and it also has a definite volume.

A gas has molecule that move very quickly and are spread far apart. A gas has no definite shape or volume.

Can you think of any examples of a solid, liquid, or gas? Leave me a comment for extra credit points! I think you can post a comment as "anonymous". Don't forget your name!

This is the foldable we made in class to help us remember the three states of matter! No! those aren't happy face stickers...they are molecules!

    1. it has a definite volume and not a definite shape. The volume is the amount of space it takes up. It is not going to change in amount just because it is in a different shaped container.

  7. I believe that two people are connected at the heart, and it doesn't matter what you do, or who you are or where you live; there are no boundaries or barriers if two people are destined to be together. See the link below for more info.
