Liquids

• Liquids take up space and have mass.
Gases
• Gases have no definite size or shape.
• Gases take the shape of its container.

Water is matter. Did you know it comes in all 3 forms?

Matter has certain properties.

Properties are the characteristics of matter, how something looks or feels.

• Matter can have color.
• Matter can be different sizes.
• Matter can have different shapes.

A second property is size.

Small objects

Large objects

Size

3. Did you sort them by shape?

A third property is shape.

Triangles

Squares

Circles

Shape

We can group objects if they are rigid or bendable.
• Bendable means that the matter can bend, curve, or turn.
• Rigid means that the matter cannot bend, it is stiff.
• Can you name somethingthat is rigid and somethingthat is bendable?

These objects are rigid.

These objects are bendable.

Centimeter
• Centimeter is a unit used to measure length.
• Milliliter is a unit used to measure volume of a liquid.
Let’s Review!
