Chart I created to help my students learn the 4 states of matter (solid, liquid, gas, and plasma) as well as the changes between them. It is a word document for easy editing! There is some empty spaces where I had my students draw their own little pictures for each phase/phase change to help them remember better. Filled in key for easy reference or for students who need modifications (They can just draw pictures and have the pre-filled chart for reference!) Also includes an instructions page to show students what to fill-in where without giving them the answers!
Aligned to the following MA state standard for High School Introductory Physics:
3.3 Describe the relationship between average molecular kinetic energy and temperature. Recognize that energy is absorbed when a substance changes from a solid to a liquid to a gas, and that energy is released when a substance changes from a gas to a liquid to a solid. Explain the relationships among evaporation, condensation, cooling, and warming.
