Core Ideas:

  • Gases and liquids are made of molecules or inert atoms that are moving about relative to each other.
  • In a liquid, the molecules are constantly in contact with others; in a gas, they are widely spaced except when they happen to collide. In a solid, atoms are closely spaced and may vibrate in position but do not change relative locations.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Cover Page- p.25” (Right Side). What do you see in this picture?
  2. Model– Create an initial model about how you think the liquid is able to pour itself. Draw a diagram of the phenomenon on a piece of easel paper. (Cooperative table group)
  3. Driving Question– Complete full class sharing of questions from See-Think-Wonder. Categorize the questions to come up with a driving question about matter
  4. Unit Cover Page-On p.25 in your interactive science notebook, create a cover page for the unit on Matter-Solids, Liquids, Gases
    • Write the title very large so that it is easy to read.
    • Draw a minimum of 3 pictures that represents the unit.
    • Color the entire page, corner to corner, using colored pencil or crayons- no white paper showing


  • Experimental scenario quiz on Thursday, 11/3– STUDY pages 22-23
  • Unit Cover Page 25 due on Friday, 11/4
