Solids Science Games

In this series of games, your students will learn the different types of solids and their properties. The Solids learning objective — based on NGSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research.

Scroll down for a preview of this learning objective’s games and the concepts they drive home.

Concepts Covered

Atoms and molecules are the particles that make up matter. A substance’s state of matter — solid, liquid, gas, or plasma — depends on how its molecules move and maintain their volume and shape.

Solids maintain their shape, unlike liquids and gases, which flow to fit their containers. They also maintain their volume.

Some solids are made of single types of atoms, and others are made of molecules. They can be pure substances, containing just one type of atom or molecule, or they can be mixtures or solutions.

In crystalline solids, such as minerals, the particles form a specific, regular, repeating pattern. They form macroscopic 3D geometric shapes called crystals. In amorphous solids, like glass and rubber, the particles have no specific orderly pattern.

In total, there are nine games in this learning objective, including:

  • Solid Speed
  • SateShifter: Solids
  • Solids
  • Soaker: Solids
  • Solid Combat
  • Rick Solid
  • Boing: Solids
  • Matt Matter, Matter Detective
  • Perk Up! – Within Grasp

A further preview of each game is below.

You can try the games within the learning objective for free on the Legends of Learning site with an account.
