Solve The Puzzles

Choice Board Activity Ideas
l. ask 'what if' questions (e.g. What if something that melted at one temperature, didn't melt at that same temperature? Then what?)
2. create a scavenger hunt to locate as many items of matter that share the list of properties in this puzzle (try to vary the type of matter: solid, liquid, gas)
3. create puzzles (crosswords, matching, multiple choice, word searches)

Three states of matter: solids, liquids and gases (plasma is not included here)

Properties of matter include the various characteristics of matter (solid, liquid, gas) such as: size (small, big), weight/mass, volume, boiling & freezing points, color (colors of the rainbow, for example), bendability/flexibility (think of an eraser), texture (what matter feels like: gooey, prickly, smooth, rough, crinkly, soft, furry), whether matter sinks or floats, taste (crunchy, sweet, sour, bitter), whether something is magnetic or not, sound (noisy, quiet), hard/soft
