What's Matter? – Crash Course Kids #3.1

Hey… what’s matter?

No no no, not what’s THE matter. What’s MATTER? In this episode of Crash Course Kids, Sabrina talks about what matter is and the three states of matter: Solid, Liquid, and Gas. She also does a quick experiment that you can do at home to prove that air is matter.

This first series is based on 5th grade science. We’re super excited and hope you enjoy Crash Course Kids!
