In simple words, anything we touch and see is matter. This video will serve as a brief introduction to matter and its states. All matter is made up of atoms. Whether these atoms are closely packed, loosely arranged or very loosely arranged, determines if it’s a solid, liquid, or gas, respectively. This video also features three demonstrations which will help students explore the characteristics of each state.
This video satisfies the 5-PS1-1 requirement of fifth-grade science proficiency.
Students who demonstrate understanding can: 5-PS1-1. Develop a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen.
