States of Matter for Kids

# States of Matter

In classical physics, there are three states in which matter occurs - solid, liquid, and gas. In a solid, the molecules are closely bound to one another by molecular forces. A solid holds its shape and the volume of a solid is fixed by the shape of the solid. In a liquid the molecular forces are weaker than in a solid, and it will take the shape of its container while its volume remains fixed. In a gas the molecular forces are very weak. A gas fills its container, taking both the shape and the volume of the container. Plasma, the collection of charged gaseous particles, is sometimes called the fourth state of matter.

 States of Matter - Science TheaterGrade: 3 - 8Interesting lesson that explains the three most common states of matter with experiments. It shows air as a gas, air as a liquid, and air as a solid, and shows off how to make a snow cone out of Nitrogen gas.7:15 States of Matter: Solid, Liquid and GasGrade: 3 - 8States of matter for kids - In this lesson learn about the different states of matter, and how matter changes its state at boiling, melting, freezing, and dew points.2:35 Changes in StateGrade: 3 - 8Find out how matter changes states.3:05 States of Matter: GasesGrade: 3 - 8Lesson on Gases.4:40 States of Matter: SolidsGrade: 3 - 8Lesson on Solids.1:35 Evaporation and CondensationGrade: 3 - 8Learn about evaporation and condensation.1:30 Energy and the 4 States - Solid, Liquid, Gas and PlasmaGrade: 5 - 8Lesson on states of matter. It includes plasma, the fourth state of matter.3:40 States of MatterGrade: 5 - 8Introduction to the states or phases of matter.19:25 Properties of WaterGrade: 5 - 8Lesson on Water - a common but unique compound which can be found in nature in all three forms - solid, liquid and gas.1:05 Plasma: The 4th State of MatterGrade: 5 - 8Learn about Plasma, the fourth state of matter due to its unique properties. Plasma is a gas in which the atoms are ionized, meaning there are free negatively charged electrons and positively charged ions.3:00
