Ways to Practice at Home:

Have your child find an object around the house (it is matter). Ask them to explain some of the physical properties it has.

Have your child do an at-home scavenger hunt to find objects that would be considered a solid, a liquid, and a gas. They can sort them into the three main states of matter!
