Engage your students and help them learn everything they need to know about states of matter and the need to add heat and remove heat to change those states with this interactive and fun science craftivity!

Check out the preview for details!


For students to learn and retain the concepts of the three states of matter (solids, liquids, and gases) and how they change those states (adding heat - evaporation, melting and removing heat [cooling]- condensation, freezing) in an engaging and interactive way.

This Resource Covers:

  • The three states of matter - solids, liquids, gases
  • The characteristics of those states (volume, shape, particles, invisible or not)
  • Examples of each state of matter
  • Changing states of matter (adding heat and removing heat - cooling)
  • identification of changing states for evaporation, condensation, melting, and freezing to occur

With this Resource You'll Get:

  • Materials to create the craftivity
  • Assembly directions
  • 3 different practice worksheets for states of matter and changing those states (with detailed information to help understand and prepare to make the craftivity)
  • An example of an assembled final craftivity
  • Answer keys

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).
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.
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.
