🌎 Matter is Everywhere!
Everything around you and making you are made up of matter- the trees, the smoke, even the water you drink. On Earth, the matter can be found under 3 different physical forms called states of matter. One of the first science concepts many children learn is the three states of matter: gas, liquid and solid.
We created myViewBoard Originals of learning states of matter, 2 versions included. This one is for kindergarten through grade 2 students to strengthen students' understanding of matter and its three states. Another is for grade 4-6 students an insight into how the states of matter can be changed from one form to another. 👉 See here
Also, we added one page on the original content for FREE myViewBoard Originals ICON RESOURCES for teachers that they can use these states of matter graphics in their myViewBoard Whiteboard design.
