This file contains pictures of 20 everyday items that are solids, liquids, and gases. This sort can be printed once and used as an interactive sort into solid, liquid, and gas categories. It can also be used as an assessment (students each receive a copy, cut out each item, and sort independently). This file includes two pages: one with solid, liquid, and gas labels (I have students glue one of each label onto the short end of a 12x18" sheet of construction paper), and the other with the objects to sort.

I purchased your Picture sort for Science unit on Matter and was disappointed there was only one page of pictures and the second page had three words and no picture. Is this the way it is suppose to be or did something not download??
That is the correct way it should be (1 page of pictures, 1 page of labels). The second page contains the labels necessary for the sort. I have the students glue the labels into three columns (solid, liquid, gas) on a 12x18" piece of construction paper. Then I give each student a copy of the picture page for them to cut and sort into the appropriate column. I'm sorry you were disappointed in the download. I've used this many times with my first graders and found that the amount of pictures were appropriate - not too many to overwhelm the students, but not too few to provide a wide range of objects to sort.
