    • A solid object cannot change its shape.
    • A rock is a solid.
    • Water is a liquid.
    • A liquid is matter that flows.
    • When you pour a liquid it flows.
    • A liquid has mass but it does not have a shape.
    • Air is a gas.
    • A liquid forms the shape of the container it is in.
    • The mass of something is how much matter it is made of.
    • Liquids do not have their own shape.
    • Balloons have air inside.
    • A gas is a kind of matter that takes up space.
    • You can’t see air but you can feel it when it moves.
    • A gas has no shape.
    • Gas has less mass than a liquid.
    • A balloon full of water has more mass than a balloon full of air.
    • A bike with a flat tire needs air.
    • Some gases have more mass than others.
    • Balloons filled with a gas called helium are lighter than those filled with air.
    • When you heat water up, it boils and becomes steam.
    • Steam is gas from water.
    • When water freezes, it becomes ice.

The three states of matter concept, is one of the first concepts of science that students learn during primary grades. Solids, liquids and gasses are all different states of matter. Being able to know which state of matter something is and how states of matter change, are both concepts in early science education. In Solid, Liquid, Gas-Science Kids Spelling Game, students are given sentences. In part of the sentences is a missing word with a blank that needs to be filled in from a list of choices. It may be a state of matter or the way a state of matter might change from a solid to a liquid or from a liquid to a gas and so on. Students will find this a fun and challenging activity. Teachers will also love that this game reinforces the concept of the three states of matter. After each question, a colorful kangaroo will throw a boomerang at a bird. If the question is answered correctly, the boomerang will come back and kangaroo will catch it. If the question is answered incorrectly, the boomerang will hit him in the head. This game would be ideal for science partners to play between other activities. Read Less
