States of Matter
The three states of matter are the focus of this chemistry video. Sal uses the example of a water molecule, and explains in great detail what forces are present to make that molecule change back and forth between a liquid, a solid, and a gas.

New Review The States of Matter
Start off class by simulating gases, liquids, and solids with a fun kinesthetic activity and then send your class off to create posters and complete stations that correspond with multiple intelligences. This is an interactive plan that will engage your pupils in their exploration of the states of matter.

In a fun lesson, kids learn about states of matter by identifying solids and liquids, then experimenting with gas to see if it has energy. Young scientists place raisins in a jar of club soda to see how the gas affects the floating or sinking of the raisins.

Physical Changes and States of Matter - One
Third graders study the three states of matter and identify the physical changes that take place between them. There is an initial teacher-led demonstration followed by a meaningful whole-class inquiry. These two activities should lead to a greater understanding of physical changes that take place between the three states of matter.

Energy and the Four States of Matter Solid Liquid Gas and Plasma
There are four states of matter: solid, liquid, gas, and plasma. As this clip describes, the key to changing the states of matter is the addition or subtraction of energy. Learn about molecules, heat, plasma, and the science behind shifting states of matter and energy.

Plasma: The 4th State of Matter
Learn all about the fourth state of matter: plasma! What is plasma anyway? Plasma is what occurs when matter has been heated to an extreme state. Watch this well done clip and find out how it works, what it is, and how it's used. A great video for grades 6-9.

Three States of Matter
Third graders investigate the three states of matter and the properties of materials as they undergo physical changes. They identify examples of each type of matter, role-play atoms in solids, liquids, and gases, and conduct an experiment with a balloon that expands using baking soda and vinegar.

States of Matter
Student explore states of matter. In this science lesson plan, learners define matter, identify the states of matter, tell about the properties of each state of matter, and demonstrate an understanding of the difference between a physical and a chemical change.

States of Matter - Science Theater
Dr. Carlson describes the states of matter with the help of an ice cube, cup of water, and steam. He shows us how energy, such as heat, can change the state of matter. This clip uses scientific experimentation and academic language to explain how something can change from a liquid to a solid to a gas, and back again.

States of Matter: Gases
How are gases like liquids; how are they different? This clip demonstrates the state of matter called gas. We find out how the properties of gas are similar and different to the properties of liquid. An experimental demonstration and solid academic language makes this a great clip for grades 3-6.

States of Matter: Solids
A solid has a definite shape and volume depending on what it's made of. Take a quick look at the chemistry that gives solids their shape and volume. This video in its entirety would be great; unfortunately, it ends prior to completely defining the solid state of matter.

States of Matter: A Cooperative Learning Lesson
Sixth graders analyze the structure of the particles in the three states of matter. In this states of matter lesson, 6th graders review prior knowledge about the states of matter. They work in groups to determine how the particles are arranged in solids, liquids, and gases before completing a jigsaw activity.

The Three States of Matter
Third graders identify properties of solids, liquids, and gasses. In this states of matter lesson plan, the teacher demonstrates the properties of each state of matter, then students go on a scavenger hunt for items to represent each state of matter.
