This is a 16 slide PowerPoint introducing the states of matter. It takes me 2 full class periods to complete these 16 slides because of the activities and demos within it. There are many opprotunities to get the kids up and moving to test out some of the information being presenting. These demos are simple and require common objects such as a ballon, pennies, eye droppers, a marble, and different shapes of containers. There are also links to songs and educational video clips to help reinforce the concept. Terms in this PowerPoint include: state of matter, solid, liquid, gas, viscosity, and surface tension.

They will be available by Nov. 2nd, 2012
