This resource is broken into 3 lessons. Each lesson takes about one week.
- Students can give examples of matter that change from a solid to a liquid and from a liquid to a solid by heating and cooling.
- Students can describe the properties of solids and liquids and give examples of both solids and liquids.
- Students can measure and compare the volume of a liquid poured into different containers.
- Students will know if the water is turned into ice and then the ice is allowed to melt, the amount of water is the same as it was before freezing.

Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.
Generate measurement data by measuring lengths of several objects to the nearest whole unit, or by making repeated measurements of the same object. Show the measurements by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in whole-number units.
