Transcript of 5th Grade - The Four States of Matter

The Four States of Matter
Mr. Chinua Mosley
ADNOC Schools Ruwais
The notes that you need to write are in red
Write them all down
The examples are in purple.
You don't HAVE to write the examples, but you should write them if you need a little help understanding the concepts
Don't worry about writing anything in black.
A solid has a definite shape and a definite volume.
The particles of a solid are packed close together and are always shaking.
Examples of solids are chairs, apples, and pencils.
This is an example of how solid particles move
A liquid doesn't have a definite shape, but it does have a definite volume.
Liquids take the shape of their container.
Liquid particles move and slide past other.
Examples are milk and water.
This is an example of how liquid particles move
Gasses don’t have a definite shape or a definite volume.
Gasses take the shape of the container that holds them.
Gas particles fly around freely until they bump into something.
Examples are air, steam, and clouds.
This is an example of how gas
particles move
There is a 4th state of matter called plasma.
Plasma only occurs when things get really hot.
The light in neon signs, fire, lightening, and the sun are examples of plasma.
This is a plasma ball that you can buy at the store
This is a video of a plasma forcefield melting metal.

Use the notes in this presentation to fill in your "States of Matter" foldable.
Matter is anything that has mass and takes up space. Solids, liquids, gases, and plasma are states of matter. Particles in each state are arranged differently.
Write this note on a line above your foldable.
