What makes a material a solid liquid or gas

What makes a material a solid, liquid or gas?


1 exploration solid liquid or gas

1. ExplorationSolid, liquid or gas?

  • How did your group decide whether each material is solid, liquid or gas?

  • Were some materials more difficult to classify than others?

  • When your group did not agree, why was this?

  • How did you resolve the disagreement?


What makes a material a solid liquid or gas

2. Do all materials follow your rules?

  • Do your ideas about the last group of materials work for all materials?

  • Which materials are hard to classify? Why?

  • Do you need to change or adapt your rules? How?

  • Can you think of any materials which could not be classified as a solid, liquid or gas?


3 smaller and smaller

3. Smaller and smaller

  • What would it be like if we could see things so small we could see how materials were made up?

  • Imagine your eyes are like microscopes.

    What do we end up with if we keep cutting something in half?

  • What do you imagine you would see if you made a piece of paper smaller and smaller?

  • What about with water? Or air?


4 a closer look at solids liquids and gases

4. A closer look at solids, liquids and gases

  • What do you already know about particles?

  • How do you think the particles are arranged in solids, liquids and gases?

  • How does what you have observed about the appearance and behaviour of solids, liquids and gases link to what you know about particles?


5 back to the start and future learning

5. Back to the start and future learning

  • How have your ideas changed today?

  • What progress have you made with your understanding of what makes a material a solid, liquid or gas?

  • What arguments have you used to explain your point of view or idea?

  • What other evidence would help you understand better?
