We’ve been covering the states of matter, atoms and molecules in chemistry. I wanted review some of the information we’ve covered and made some basic worksheets for the kids. First, we went over the three states of matter and looked closely again at the parts of an atom.
Molecule Movement Experiment: Then we did a simple experiment with water to show that water molecules can move at different rates. We took a glass of very chilled, cold water; a glass of hot (near boiling water); and a glass that had frozen ice. We placed one drop of dye in each glass and observed:
Below is a picture of the review worksheet I made for the kids.

For some reason the images of the text boxes faded away in the screen shots, though it looks just fine in the file. This gives you an idea of what we covered in our review. I also included all the answers, but didn’t take screenshots of those.
