Learning About the States of Matter CAN Be Fun!
My boys and I marvel at all that you can learn about when you study science. Things that range from microscopic to huge. And with such a variety, like optics (the science of light), cells, layers of the earth, life cycles, and more.
If you’d like to make science more fun for your kids, I highly recommend adding states of matter to your list!
Initially, states of matter may seem simple or boring. But, there are a ton of activities and resources that you can use to make the topic more engaging and exciting.
These 6 free states of matter worksheets can help you extend the science fun, too.
6+ Ways to Boost the Fun with These States of Matter Worksheets
1. Print and Use the Free States of Matter Worksheets
The first thing you can do is print out these states of matter worksheets. Look over the pages and get a feel for what to expect (and resources you can use).
These printables are free, fun, and challenge children to gather valuable information about different types of matter, including the many liquids, solids, and gasses that we come across each day.
2. Complete a Liquids Search and Find
Get the children excited to learn about matter by completing the liquids search and find. See what types of liquids you have at home, such as bottled water, cleaning chemicals, milk, and more.
Before you begin your search, talk about different liquids that you may have. This type of conversation can help your students as they go about this sort of science scavenger hunt activity. Finding one of those liquids will add to the excitement of the activity!
3. Draw Examples of Matter
After completing a fun hands-on lesson, it’s the perfect time to get the children to boost their fine motor skills AND show off their creative side by drawing examples of matter.
Supply a variety of pencils, color pencils, markers, and crayons so that your kids can draw and color examples to look even better before they label them and present them to you.
4. Play the Match Game
The match game is another fun states of matter activity. While completing this worksheet, have your children attempt to identify the differences between a solid, gas, and liquid.
Once your kids have matched each item, have them draw an example of each one to ensure they’re understanding the differences between the three.
5. Complete Hands-On Experiments
Take some time to complete some other hands-on experiments that you can use in addition to the states of matter worksheets. These types of experiments will give your children an in-depth look at matter while helping them easily identify the differences in liquid, gas, and solids.
6. Have Your Children Create Presentations of Different Liquids
Another way to make science fun is to have your children create presentations of the different liquids by using cardboard and construction paper. For example, one child might want to draw a cloud with raindrops coming out of it. Or make a model of it by using construction paper and cotton balls.
Be sure to supply the children with different arts and craft supplies to help them create their presentations. Once they’ve put their displays together, you can have each child stand up and explain what was made while describing the type of matter they decided to cover for the project.
