States of Matter Properties Venn Diagram

PDF | 3 pages|Grade: 5

A cut and paste activity that explores the properties of solids, liquids and gases.

Solids, liquids and gases have different observable properties and behave in different ways.

This chemical sciences teaching resource, which explores the properties of the three states of matter, would be an excellent addition to a lesson or unit related to states of matter.

Students cut out the descriptions, then paste them into the correct section of the Venn diagram.

It is recommended that the Venn diagram template be printed on A3 paper. Page 2 should be printed on A4 paper. This will allow the boxes to fit easily into the diagram.

This resource was created in conjunction with Janine Wedmaier at our Let’s Collaborate event.
