Product Description
Provide your students with bins full of objects (or pictures of objects) and direct them to sort the objects into 3 groups. The goal of course is solids, liquids, and gases. When used with second graders, no students figured that out on the first try. After sorting, try discussing why they sorted them as they did, then introduce the 3 states of matter. Great for an introduction activity.
