I've long been on the hunt for tier-three vocabulary resources for my English Language Learners (ELLs/ESOL students), but couldn't find any that fit the bill -- I want my classroom visuals to be simple, direct, and feature REAL photographs. So what did I do? I made my own!

I also wanted these vocabulary resources to be something I can use at ANY elementary grade level, and with below, on, and above grade-level students. With that goal in mind, I've include vocabulary you may encounter teaching the concept of matter in Kindergarten all the way through fifth grade.

In this pack you'll be receiving resources for the following matter vocabulary terms:

- matter
- state
- solid
- liquid
- gas
- mass
- volume
- condensation
- evaporation
- freezing
- melting
- property
- float
- sink
- color
- shape
- texture
- flexibility
- size
- atom
- molecule
- physical change
- sublimation
- deposition
- chemical change
- mix
- mixture
- dissolve
- solution

Each word has a vocabulary poster, vocabulary card, related word posters, and graphic organizers. Posters and word cards are included with two versions: with and without the definition.

Related word posters give you versatility! For example, the solid poster also has related word posters for snow/ice, wood, toys, and video game. I've also included sorting headers so that you can utilize the related words as a sort for students (i.e. sort states of matter).

The file includes some additional suggested activities using the vocabulary and related word posters, as well as printing instructions should you wish to print multiple pages per sheet.

Please utilize the preview to see what's included, and don't hesitate to leave a question if you need additional clarification on what's included in this resource or how it can be utilized in your classroom.
