The Matter, an Introduction to Solids, Liquids, and Gases is a SmartBoard instructional presentation in line with the 2nd Grade SOL’s for the state of Virginia (Matter).
2.3 The student will investigate and understand basic properties of solids, liquids, and gases. Key
a) mass and volume; and
b) processes involved with changes in matter from one state to another (condensation,
evaporation, melting, and freezing).
This lesson focuses on the principles of matter. It includes: a Smartboard presentation which overviews the textbook chapter about matter. It includes terms associated with matter (matter, mass, property, temperature, solid, liquid, volume, gas, physical change, and chemical change). There are slides explaining changes in mass, how to measure mass, and more. There are also two SmartBoard activities (one measuring activity and one writing/short answer activity). The two activities are on a white background so that they can be given as classwork, homework, or accompanying supplement to the presentation.
