Students undertake a hands-on exploration to determine the properties of a solid.

Communicating matters

View Sequence overview

Students will:

  • investigate to identify and name the properties that help us describe a solid.
  • apply these properties to determine if something is a solid or not.


Students will represent their understanding as they:

  • record observations about the behaviour of solids in a data table.
  • make and discuss claims about the properties of solids.
