Matter, Solid, Liquids, Gases

Everything in the world is made up of matter.  There are three kinds of matter.

1. Solid - Examples of solids are a shoe or a basketball.  A solid is hard.  You can see a solid.

2. Liquid - Examples of liquids are milk and water.  A liquid is not hard.  You can see a liquid.

We can't show you a gas because you can't see a gas.
