Matter Chemistry for Kids - digital version for use with Google Drive™. With this resource, your students will work with the states of matter (solid, liquid, gas, and plasma) as well as physical and chemical change. This is based on the interactive notebook portion of this printable Matter resource
. Please note that this resource does NOT include informational text.
This is a digital interactive notebook resource, so please only purchase if you have the resources to use it (computers/laptops/tablets, etc. and Internet access). The pages are colorful and tap into a range of skills. If you have a Google classroom, this is a great way to bring fun to learning about matter. #tptdigital #tptdigitalsale
• Instructions on using the resource, with examples (10 pages): Also includes instructions for using with Microsoft OneDrive.

→ Sorting pages for the Properties (1 page) and Examples (1 page) of each
→ Definitions page (3 options, 1 is blank)
→ States of Matter for Water (graphic organizer)
→ Label the pictures with the states of matter (6 included)

• Answer Key
• Optional blank template pages (7 provided) if you would like to include additional terms or activities, or have your students do further research on a specific topic.
Why should I use a digital interactive resource instead of a paper one?
• You will save paper and ink, increase technology fluency, and support a green environment.
• Digital files can be accessed anywhere you have an internet connection! No need to worry about losing papers or keeping track of handwritten notes.
• Your students will be engaged, and you won't have scraps of paper all over your classroom! You also won't have to search for pieces that might go missing.
• Once the project is complete, your students will have created a piece of their digital portfolio. Since the information is housed on slides, presenting their material is much more seamless and manageable.
Are there any other benefits to using a digital interactive resource?
• Digital resources can be high in color and image-heavy, without worrying about using excessive ink.
• Students can gain many tech skills they may not get otherwise, including learning short cut keys, manipulating digital elements, and many more.
• Peer collaboration, editing, and review are all available at the click of a button.
• Editing and updating are not cause for a total redo!
• When you are to start the activity over again with a new group of students, you won't need to run to the copy machine.
What if I can't get something to work as I think it should?
• As with any technology-centered resource, there may be some hiccups along the way. I have provided very detailed instructions for using this resource. If you get stuck, please feel free to contact me and I will do my best to work with you so that you and your students can reap the benefits of going interactive and digital.
