What is Matter?

Everything around us is matter.  It is anything you can see, feel, touch or smell.  Matter takes up space.  Even you are made of matter!
Matter comes in three main forms.  Matter can be a solid.  It can be a liquid.  It can be a gas.
A glass is a solid.  Orange juice is a liquid.  The air we breathe is a gas.
By the end of this unit, Grade 2 students will be able to:
  • identify objects as liquids or solids
  • describe the properties of liquids and solids
  • describe water in liquid and solid forms
  • identify what makes objects change states (liquid to solid, or solid to liquid)
  • describe how solids and liquids can be combined to make useful substances
  • explain the meaning of safety symbols
Watch this video about the 3 states of matter: solid, liquid, and gas.
