Four States of Matter videos and lesson plan

While many younger children learn about the three states of matter, there are actually four. Well, in extreme and rare situations, there are more, but we're focusing on four, not three. We are focusing on astrophysics and the Big Bang, and are including plasma in our lessons on matter.

This video was found on YouTube and has an accompanying teacher's guide provided through Discovery Education. It focuses on the four states of matter: liquid, gas, plasma and solid and discusses Einstein's theory of how matter and energy are convertible.

Check out the video below as well as the free lesson plan. You may download the lesson plan here.
