Fill in the blanks:
1. Properties is to describe objects in many ways using their size, shape, colors, and textures.
2. Objects that take up space and have mass are called matter.
3. Matter is anything that is made up of atoms and molecules. 
4. An atom is the smallest particle of any substance/matter.
5. Two or more than two atoms together are called molecules.
6.  Solids have a definite shape, mass and volume.
7.  Liquids have a definite mass and a definite volume, but no definite shape.
8. Gases have a no definite shape, no definite mass and no definite volume.
9. Wood has a   fixed shape.
10.Liquid occupies space and has volume
11. A gas has no shape or size of its own.
12. On heating water changes to vapour.
13. Matter takes up space.
14. The shape of wood can be changed only by cutting or burning.
Name the following :

b.   Solids -- rice, roti , biscuits etc
c.   Gases—oxygen, carbon dioxide etc
Q.III Give reason:

3.The smell of burning incense stick spreads in the room

Ans: It changes to water vapour.

Ø Mango milkshake is kept in the freezer
Ans : It will freeze and takes the shape of solid.


Q.V Difference between the following:

Has fixed shape and size
Does not have fixed shape but has fixed volume.
Does not have fixed shape or volume
Molecules in solids are packed very tightly, so they do not move very easily.
Molecules in liquids are not packed very tightly, so liquids can flow.
Molecules of gases are spread out in an open space freely.
Size of a solid does not change unless it is heated, cooled, broken or cut.
e.g. book, table, glass
Liquids take the shape of the container in which they are held.
e.g. water, juice, milk etc.
