Matter Sorter Game Teaching Strategies

Use the Matter Sorter game along with the lesson plan to provide several ways of describing States of Matter to your students.  Also, think about when best to introduce the lesson or the game, according to what grade your students are in.  This game can be used with younger students toward the end of the matter unit as a review; with older students, use this lesson on the first or second day of the unit to determine background knowledge and address misconceptions.
