You get two printable pages in this download and one title page that serves as an answer key. The first printable page has 12 labeled pictures to cut out. Paste the pictures into the appropriate spots on the 2nd page .

There is a “challenge” square that features shaving cream. If possible, allow your students to touch real shaving cream and make their guesses as to which section it should be pasted into. You can explain that shaving cream is a liquid soap with a lot of gas bubbles mixed in. The gas bubbles make it thick enough to keep its shape. Allow your students to look at it with a magnifying glass. You can also leave it out overnight to see what happens! The liquid will evaporate and leave behind a thin, solid layer of soap.

Glue or place round cereal (or use other similar objects) to the page, to show how atoms are packed into solids, liquids and gases.

Happy learning!
