### Instructional Procedures

1. Hook activity:
• Liquid: Pour your liquid into a beaker
• Ask: Will the volume (space it takes up) change if I pour into a different beaker?
• Ask: Will the shape of the liquid change if I pour it into a different beaker?
• Have a student read the volume, then pour it into a different beaker and have the student find the volume again.
• Solid (repeat what you did with liquids)
• Gas
1. Use the balloons & ask the same questions and demonstrate how the shape will change depending on the container
2. Ask: What would happen to the volume of the gas if the balloon is popped?
2. Handout the student sheet & use the PowerPoint to provide information. Ask student volunteers to draw the diagrams of the relative states on the board.
