Solids and liquids are two different states of matter with completely different properties.  Play the game and then brainstorm some ways to teach the concept of solids and liquids with your peers.

Click on the teacher's guide for Solids and Liquids to see the concept storyline.

I like teaching STC kits! STC kits are easy to use. The teacher guides are easy to follow and provide teachers with the necessary information to effectively teach the concepts.
