Delta Science Readers States Of Matter Collection
The Delta Science Collection States of Matter introduces students to matter and its physical properties. Students learn about three states of matter: solid, liquid, and gas. They read about changing from one state to another by melting, freezing, evaporation, and condensation. Students meet two scientists who work with matter in different states—one at a crayon factory and another in Antarctica. Finally, they discover how heating gases keeps a hot air balloon afloat.
