Name the three states of matter?
Solid - has its own shape and volume. Liquid - takes the shape of its container. Gas - has no shape or volume.
States of Matter
Solid: A state of matter in which the particles are packed together tightly and are not able to move around. Liquid: A state of matter in which the particles are loosely packed together and can move around freely. Gas: A state of matter in which the particles are not packed together and can move around freely.
Solid matter can be heated and cooled without changing its state. Water can exist in all three states of matter at the same time. The four states of matter are solid, liquid, gas, and plasma.

Question: What are the 3 states of matter? Clues: • One state is a gas that can fill any container it is in. • One state is a liquid that can take the shape of a container it is in. • One state is a solid that holds its shape.
