L.C. To group material based on their states of matter



In science we are going to be looking at state of matter.


There are 3 different states of matter. These are:





Solids - A solid material has a definite shape that remains the same unless a forced is acted upon it. The particles in a solid are rotating, vibrating or moving about a fixed position, close to each other. 


Liquids - A liquid has no fixed shape but a fixed volume. It takes on the shape of its container. The particles in a liquid move more and have more energy than particles in a solid but still remain in close contact with each other. Different liquids behave in different ways, some move more easily than others - they are less viscous.


Gases - A gas has no fixed shape or volume and will always spread out to fill the container it is in. The particles have a lot of energy, moving around in a random way, hitting other particles and the walls of the container.


Below is a diagram of what the particles would look like of each state of mater and how they would look in a container.

Using what you now know go onto Seesaw and drag the images of materials into the correct column of the table.
