Activity Overview

Comparing and contrasting in a visual manner is a great way to help students grasp potentially complex concepts in science. In this activity, students can demonstrate their understanding of the similarities and differences in the three states of matter: solid, liquid and gas, by creating a Venn Diagram poster! They can be created as an end of unit assessment to check for student retention or to hang in the classroom as a visual reminder of what students have learned.
