What educators are saying

This was a fun part of my 4th grade unit on matter. This interactive unit was fun and easy to use for all students.
We used this in our composition notebooks for Science. It was very helpful and I used most of the product included.:)


Engage your students with these "doodle note" formatted sketch notes that are interactive and perfect for your science unit on matter! Your students will love them and it will definitely help them retain the information they are taught!

Check out the preview for details!


For students to learn the concepts about matter in an engaging and interactive way so that they can commit the information to memory.

This Resource Covers:

This activity covers the following concepts related to matter:

  • What is matter
  • Examples of matter
  • What matter is made up of
  • Properties of matter
  • States of matter (solids, liquids, gases)
  • Changing States (adding heat and removing heat - including the terms evaporation, condensation, freezing, and melting)
  • Mixtures and solutions (including ways to separate)
  • Physical and chemical changes
  • Conservation of matter

With this Resource You'll Get:

  • 2 different sized booklets - half-page size to save on paper and full-page size for more space to write
  • Printing directions
  • Answer keys

Other Resources You May Enjoy:

Physical and Chemical Changes Unit

Matter Vocabulary Games and Worksheets

Printing Notes:

I recommend printing and laminating materials for future use. These materials print just fine in grayscale. I would suggest printing "as image" from Adobe rather than your browser to avoid any potential issues.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Make observations and measurements to identify materials based on their properties. Examples of materials to be identified could include baking soda and other powders, metals, minerals, and liquids. Examples of properties could include color, hardness, reflectivity, electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, response to magnetic forces, and solubility; density is not intended as an identifiable property. Assessment does not include density or distinguishing mass and weight.
Conduct an investigation to determine whether the mixing of two or more substances results in new substances.
Measure and graph quantities to provide evidence that regardless of the type of change that occurs when heating, cooling, or mixing substances, the total weight of matter is conserved. Examples of reactions or changes could include phase changes, dissolving, and mixing that forms new substances. Assessment does not include distinguishing mass and weight.
Develop a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen. Examples of evidence could include adding air to expand a basketball, compressing air in a syringe, dissolving sugar in water, and evaporating salt water. Assessment does not include the atomic-scale mechanism of evaporation and condensation or defining the unseen particles.
