States of matter
Work on this Doc together with a partner.
Give three examples of each state of matter?
What’s the difference between the three states of matter?
The particles of the solids are compressed together to form a harder surface
The particle of the liquids are not as compressed together as a solid. There particles flow easily and don’t mind being separated.
Gases are similar to liquids. Their particles flow around in their air in separation. They cannot be held like a solid as there particles are not compressed together.
Write 3 sentences explaining something new you learned from this reading.
I have learnt the differences between all three of the states of matter. Also particles can also be called Atoms. When atoms are made smaller they are called Molecules. Also I have learnt the difference between mass and weight. Mass is the quality that gives weight its shape. Weight is the heaviness of the mass.
