Everything we see is made up of matter; it’s what gives things volume. Matter is comprised of three states: solids, liquids, and gases. Look at your desk at school. That’s a solid. The milk you drink for lunch? That’s a liquid. And helium—that invisible substance that fills birthday balloons—is a gas. This video helps young children begin to understand the three states of matter and their properties. This video is available in both English and Spanish audio, along with corresponding closed captions.
