Product Description

The Ultimate Classification of Matter Card Sort!

Contains 222 matter cards to sort, and the flexibility to choose the depth to which your students classify matter:

pure substances, mixtures, elements, compounds, homogeneous mixtures, heterogeneous mixtures, metals, non-metals, metalloids, inorganic compounds, organic compounds, solutions, colloids (foams, solid foams, liquid aerosols, emulsions, gels, solid aerosols, sols, solid sols), suspensions, and mechanical mixtures.

If your students do not understand how matter is classified, they certainly will after this hands-on activity! I am especially proud of this activity and wish I had it when I was learning to classify matter.

Each of the 222 cards contains a description of the matter along with an image. Common names, chemical names, and chemical formulas are provided where appropriate. Images on cards include a mixture of photographs, Bohr-Rutherford, Lewis dot, Lewis structural, molecular models, etc. All images copyright AwesomeScience.

Each of the 24 placemats contains additional information to help guide students in the process of classifying matter.

This activity is flexible and adaptable enough to engage all levels of learners.

You have the option of selecting which cards use and when. You have the option of selecting how far down the classification tree your students go. Have students stop sorting at pure substances/mixtures and then resume sorting later. Have students sort only pure substances and save mixtures for a later date.

Teacher preparation:

  • Print pages (best if printed in color on white cardstock)
  • Cut out cards
  • Distribute to students and – off they go!

***All printed material remains with the teacher.

So, once you make your initial investment in printing, cutting, laminating, etc., you will have a resource that will last you a very long time.
