States of Matter Tri-Foldable

Thanks for the wonderful feedback on my Transformations Foldable! I am so glad that everyone loved it as much as I do. I seriously look at it everyday. I swear I have a life.

So I have been lucky enough to have this ENTIRE week off. I can’t complain πŸ™‚ But when everyone is out of school in May and we’re still stuck in the sweltering building at the end of June, we’ll be even.

A few weeks ago, I introduced states of matter to my 6th graders, but between the science fair and health unit I had to teach, it has been a month since we first started it. When we get back on Monday, we are going to resume the chapter. To review what we had previously learned, the students will be making this foldable:

On the front I used glitter glue to show the how the atoms and molecules align in solids, liquids and gases. I think I am going to have the students use paint and Q-Tips instead.

On the inside, students will cut apart descriptions of each state and glue them under the corresponding flap.

In 6th grade, students clearly know the difference between the three states, but these are the characteristics that they really need to know.

Ooo new manicure!

Teaching states of matter? This can be adapted up or down depending on the grade level you are teaching. Click on the picture below to download the PDF. Just want the blank tri-fold pdf? Head over to this post here!

Hope everyone has a great weekend! I have big plans using this same template for a systems of equations foldable. Be on the lookout for it πŸ™‚

  1. Oh – that’s great! I can definitely use that one next year. (And, we’ll be in school until the bitter end of June, too!).

  2. Neat! I made a similar one for my kiddos at the beginning of the year, though they didn’t sort through information, they just wrote some from what they learned. I am also a fan of those two fonts–I use them frequently!! Nicely done, as always!! πŸ™‚

  3. how do you know my name or is your name kate too?

  4. Would be cool to add some flaps that overlap solid/liquid and liquid/gas with an arrow in each direction to then add info about melting, evaporation/vaporization, condensation, freezing.

  5. sloppy just terrible
