Class, let’s talk about matter and mass
Matter can be a solid, liquid, or gas
Mass is the amount of matter something has
There’s matter in a ladder and a blade of grass
Properties describe what an object is like
Is it rough or smooth, is it heavy or light?
Is it old or new, is it dull or bright?
We can measure and compare, color, shape, and size

Matter matters to me as a matter of fact
The air we breathe is matter as gas
Water we drink is matter in a glass
Food we eat is matter tightly packed
Gases have no surface or definitive shape
Their particles always remain evenly spaced
Pressure is made when gas is condensed and contained
Open a soda to hear air expand and escape (pssshhhhttt)
Liquids have different colors, weights, smells, and tastes
Volume is the amount of space a liquid takes
A liquid matches the shape its container makes
Some are dangerous, some are perfectly safe
Solids have an independent shape and size
Molecules are packed tight, side-by-side
Solids have textures and can be categorized
By hardness, temperature, weight, and height

Class, let’s talk about matter and mass
Matter can be a solid, liquid, or gas
Mass is the amount of matter something has
There’s matter in a ladder and a blade of grass
Properties describe what an object is like
Is it rough or smooth, is it heavy or light?
Is it old or new, is it dull or bright?
We can measure and compare, color, shape, and size

Properties help describe what something is like
Texture is how it feels, weight is heavy or light
A ruler measures length, width, and height
Use a scale for weight, a tape measure for size
Pillows are soft, rocks are hard
Metal is smooth, scissors are sharp
Rivers are long, lizards are short
Cars are heavy, feathers are not
Yards and feet are medium units of measurement
For smaller things, use a centimeter or inch
Tons can weigh big objects, like elephants
Pounds and ounces tell how heavy something is
Now we know the states of matter and how to measure mass
Oh wait, I almost forgot the measure of gas
And liquid, too! It’s called volume
There’s ounces, cups, pints, quarts, and gallons, phew!

Class, let’s talk about matter and mass
Matter can be a solid, liquid, or gas
Mass is the amount of matter something has
There’s matter in a ladder and a blade of grass
Properties describe what an object is like
Is it rough or smooth, is it heavy or light?
Is it old or new, is it dull or bright?
We can measure and compare, color, shape, and size
