The State of Matter – Kindergarten

I introduced the State of Matter to my children last month. Yes, this is quite a late post. Anyway, let me share to you today how our lesson went.

We started our lesson with a chant.

“matter, matter, solid, liquid, gas.
matter, matter, solid, liquid, gas.
matter, matter, they are everywhere!”.

Reciting the chant made it easy for them to remember the three state of matter. Then we talked about the state of matter. I placed an example in a zip lock bag and have them examined it. I got this idea from Little Miss Hood’s Adventures in Kindergarten.

The boys were excited seeing liquid with different colors in the zip lock bag. They savor the minutes of scrutinizing the samples.

And then experimenting how matters changes its state while reciting the chant again and again.

I think the boys had fun experimenting with matter.
