Grades: 2-5
Subject Area: Science
National Standard: 2-PS1-1, 5-PS-3


  1. Line a bulletin board with winter-themed bulletin board paper. 
  2. Attach the Bubbly Blues Scalloped Borders around the edges of the bulletin board. Attach the Winter Fun Straight Border over top to create a layered look.  
  3. Use Blue EZ Letters to title your display Cozy with Matter. 
  4. Label the small headers from the Winter Mini Bulletin Board Set with the properties of matter: Solid, Liquid, and Gas. Attach the headers to the board underneath the title. 
  5. Write the names of objects in different forms on Winter Mix Mini Cut-Outs (snowflakes).  
  6. Decorate the rest of the board with penguins and snowmen from the Winter Mini Bulletin Board Set.
  7. If desired, attach two (2) Magnetic Board Buddies: Teal Pocket Charts to the bottom of the bulletin board. Designate one to neatly hold all of the mini cut-outs when students are not playing the game and one to hold pushpins or thumbtacks so that students can easily attach the snowflake cut-outs to the bulletin board.


Have students match the snowflake mini cut-outs with the corresponding properties of matter. Students can complete this activity for quiet time, at a science center, or in small group instruction.
