Matter Lesson Plans By: Ms. J. Helton

Matter is everything around you, including you!
What is matter? Matter is everything around you, including you! Matter is what all things are made of.

Science Standard: 2-1: The student will demonstrate an understanding of scientific inquiry, including the processes, skills, and mathematical thinking necessary to conduct a simple scientific investigation. 2-4 The student will demonstrate an understanding of the properties of matter and the changes that matter undergoes. 2-3 The student will demonstrate an understanding of daily and seasonal weather conditions.

Science Indicators: 2-1.5 Use appropriate safety procedures when conducting investigations. 2-4.2 Exemplify matter that changes from solid to a liquid and from a liquid to a solid.

Today’s Objectives: By the end of the week, the second grade students will be able to: Explain how matter that changes from solid to a liquid and from a liquid to a solid.

What is Matter? Matter is anything that takes up space and has weight.
Matter has three forms. Matter can be a solid, a liquid, or a gas. Matter is made up of tiny particles called molecules.

Matter has 3 forms. 1. Solid 2. Liquid 3. Gas

Matter is everything around you, including you
Matter is everything around you, including you! Matter is what all things are made of. There three states of matter are solid, liquid and gas. solid hot air liquid gas

Solids A solid has its own shape.
A solid does not change unless you cut, bend, or break it. Solids take up space and have mass.

Who can tell me how are solids alike?
Look at these pictures. Who can tell me how are solids alike? Think-Pair-Share

Remember solids have a definite size and shape.

Liquids Liquids do not have their own shape.
Liquids take the shape of their container. Liquids take up space and have mass.

How are liquids alike? Think-Pair-Share:

Liquids have a definite size but take on the shape of the container.

Gases Gases have no definite size or shape.
Gases take the shape of its container. A gas will fill all the space inside a container. Gases take up space and have mass.

How are gases alike? Think-Pair-Share hot air bubbles steam

How are gases alike? steam bubbles hot air Gases have no definite size or shape and move into all available space. Air in a balloon

Matter can be a solid, liquid, or gas. Can you put these things in groups? Go to the next slide and help your teacher place these under the correct category. steam cola Ice cube hot air milk bubbles candy Air in a balloon blocks water

Water is matter. Did you know it comes in all 3 forms?
A Solid A Liquid A Gas ice water water vapor

Matter has certain properties.
Properties are the characteristics of matter, how something looks or feels. Matter can have color. Matter can be different sizes. Matter can have different shapes. Matter can have texture. Matter can be rigid or bendable. Matter also takes up space and has mass.

We can group objects by their properties
We can group objects by their properties. How can we group these objects?

Did you sort them by color?
One property is color. Red Yellow Color Green

Size 2. Did you sort them by size? A second property is size.
Small objects Large objects Size

Shape 3. Did you sort them by shape? A third property is shape.
Triangles Squares Circles Shape

We can group objects if they are rigid or bendable.
Bendable means that the matter can bend, curve, or turn. Rigid means that the matter cannot bend, it is stiff. Can you name something that is rigid and something that is bendable?

Which objects are rigid? Which objects are bendable?

These objects are rigid. These objects are bendable.

Centimeter Centimeter is a unit used to measure length.
Milliliter is a unit used to measure volume of a liquid.

1. What are the 3 forms of matter?
Let’s Review! 1. What are the 3 forms of matter?

1. The 3 forms of matter are ____
Solids Liquids Gases

2. A solid has a definite shape. a. True b. False

2. True A solid has a definite size and shape.

3. A liquid has a definite shape. a. True b. False

3. False A liquid has a definite size, but it takes the shape of its container.

4. A gas has a definite shape. a. True b. False

4. False A gas has no definite size or shape, because it fills all the space of its container.

5. What are some properties of matter?

5. Some properties of matter include _____
5. Some properties of matter include _____. color size shape rigid bendable texture

Congratulations! You have learned that matter is EVERYWHERE!
