Science Experiment - States of Matter

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 5 pages | Grades: 3 - 5

A science experiment that investigates how a substance's state of matter can be changed.

Matter makes up all substances in the physical universe. Substances can exist in three states of matter: solid, liquid, or gas. The state of a substance can be changed by changing its temperature. Turning a liquid into a solid is called freezing. So, if a liquid is put in a freezer, will that always make it a solid? Let’s investigate!

This Matter and Energy experiment allows students to investigate changing states of matter.

Students follow the scientific method to conduct the experiment, then complete the worksheets provided.
