PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Each deck consists of Solid, Liquid, Gas, Melt, Evaporate, Condense, and Solidify (Freeze) cards. Cards are played in an order to simulate the changes matter goes through in the real world. Cards are color coded to ensure that the correct card is played at the right time.

I am a teacher in the Prince William County Public School System in Northern Virginia. I'm very excited about several card games I invented to help students learn about basic science concepts related to the Rock Cycle, Sound, Matter, Kingdoms of living things, and Vertebrates/Invertebrates. These games are very easy to play and can be played in a short period of time. They can be used as a hands-on tool to complement a science unit. They are also the perfect, fun, quick way to review before state exams. Each card is plastic coated for durability. For the visual learner, actual photographs reinforce the concepts presented.

Additional features:

No set-up time required. Just deal the cards and play.

Students can play independently. Cards are colored coded to ensure that the correct card is played at the right time.

Limited time? Great for those 10 extra minutes. Perfect for students who finish an assignment early, or as a reward at the end of a good day.

High Quality. Each card is plastic coated for durability. Actual photographs are used to enhance learning.

Created by a teacher. Used successfully in the classroom with real students. They love them!!

For 2 to 6 players

Please see Rock-On, Silence, Kingdoms, and Who's Got the Bones? listings for details about my other games. Or contact me at info@thomasleanne.com with questions.

Thank you!

Wish the cards were more challenging but nonetheless the students had fun with them as a review before the test.
On  March 9, 2013Leanne Thomas answered:
You are correct. Depending on the grade level and abilities of the students, States of Matter can be a simple review, or it can help students learn the vocabulary and basic concepts of this topic. It sounds like you have already helped your students have a solid understanding about how matter changes states. Thank you for taking the time to comment.

Hi Leanne! Can I download the cards and print them off or will I have to wait for them to ship?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  May 1, 2013Leanne Thomas answered:
I'm sorry there is no digital download for this. The cards are high quality playing cards, like a regular deck of cards. I ship them priority mail, so you will have them in no time at all. Thank you for your interest. I look forward to receiving your order.

On  August 25, 2012,  Buyer asked:
I see the shipping is $2.50. If I buy more than one set of cards, is the shipping $2.50 per set?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 25, 2012Leanne Thomas answered:
Hello

Yes, it is. sorry. On my website I give a volume discount for orders of 10 or more (price and shipping). But buying through TpT I have already discounted the price by more than half. So you are really getting a deal, even with the individual shipping fees. Thank you for asking and I looking hopefully forward to your order.

Hi - I'm interested in these cards. How much would you charge to ship to Canada - I see a shipping cost, but not sure if it would include Canada. Thanks.
Also - is there a digital download so I could print my own cards?

How many decks are you interested in so I can check on a shipping cost? I'm sorry there is no digital download for this. The cards are high quality playing cards, like a regular deck of cards.
