Matter Foldables

This week we're learning about the states of matter, and I knew it would be difficult for the kiddos to grasp the concept about how molecules behave in each state, so here's what I came up with. After we acted out how molecules would behave in different states of matter (with the students being the molecules), we made these matter foldables:
1. Fold a piece of construction paper in half hot dog style.
2. While it is still folded in half, fold it into thirds like a billfold.
3. Now there is a section each for solids, liquids, and gases.
4. Students drew the pictures on the front and added happy face stickers molecules as they would appear in each item.
5. Finally, they used their books to find facts about each state and wrote information.

Another thing my students really loved was this video: They literally laughed out loud EVERY time we watched it!
