Sample Classroom Procedure:

  1. Without introduction, distribute a salt packet, balloon, and small cup of water to each student.
  2. Have students blow up and tie the balloon.
  3. Ask students: What is the same and different between the air in the balloon, the water in the cup, and the salt?
  4. List responses for display and discuss. Students should begin to recognize that there is a solid, liquid, and a gas.
  5. Ask the question: What is the most common characteristic of all three?
  6. Accept responses and discuss.
  7. Tell the students that each of the items and everything around them is made up of matter.
