Learning about matter is a very important part of science that young students need to understand. For this PowerPoint, I created an informative and visually interesting summary of what matter is, the difference between mass, volume and weight, the three types of matter, and how something sinks or/and floats. What I do is have students take turns reading the text and take notes. This is an effective way of conducting student engagement. A nice addition to this presentation might be to do a science inquiry experiment on matter with your students.
