Product Description
I made this test to assess my second-graders' knowledge at the culmination of our unit on matter. I also made a study guide that they completed in class using their notebooks. Then, we went over it as a group.

Topics and terms included in the study guide & test are:

-What is matter?
-The three states of matter and their properties
-Mass, weight, and volume
-condensation & evaporation

On the test, the students are asked to explain what matter is. They are also given a word bank and they have to choose the correct state of matter to fit in each blank. Next, students are asked to list three examples of each type of matter. Another word bank is included in which they have to choose the correct word to fit each definition. The final part of the test includes three short answer questions about freezing water, condensation, and evaporation.

*To help students understand the concepts of evaporation and condensation, we conducted an experiment in which we put water in an open container and a closed container and set them both by the window. We observed what happened to the water in each cup over the course of several days. You may want to complete this experiment or something similar with your students before the test.

Answer keys for the study guide and test are included.

*The study guide & test meet the following NC Essential Standards for Science but can be used by teachers from other states with similar standards:

2.P.2.1 Give examples of matter that change from a solid to a liquid and from a liquid to a solid by heating and cooling.
2.P.2.2 Compare the amount (volume and weight) of water in a container before and after freezing.
2.P.2.3 Compare what happens to water left in an open container over time as to water left in a closed container.
