Useful as a discussion tool for an introduction to solids, liquids and gases. The children can use the clips to help them explain the differences between the three states. This could lead onto children taking photographs of things at school or within the home that are examples of solids, liquids and gases. It also lends itself to simple acrostic poetry in which each letter is an example of the given state.
