1.) Identify states of matter as solids, liquids, and gases.

•  Describing objects according to physical properties, including hardness, color, and flexibility
•  Describing changes between states of matter
Examples:

- solid to liquid—melting,

- gas to liquid—condensing,

- liquid to gas—evaporating,

- liquid to solid—freezing

•  Measuring quantities of solids and liquids
