Solids, Liquids and Gas!
It's finally here! It's finally here. We started our unit on Matter. I LOVE this unit. I mean I seriously LOVE this unit. We use Foss science kits in our district, but I supplement the kit with Hope King's Matter unit and I can't say enough about this fun unit. I began the lesson by having the kiddos watch, Bill Nye the Science Guy's episode on solids, liquids and gas. After the video I had the kids go back to their seat and find the Matter picture I had left under their name tag. I used the pictures from Hope's unit. As a class we discussed and sorted the pictures onto Solids, Liquids and Gas posters. After we sorted the pictures together I gave each student a set of their own pictures and a flap book to sort their pictures into. I hung the posters up so the students could reference them if needed. They really enjoyed demonstrating their knowledge on the flap books.
