Particles in solids, liquids and gases All materials are made out of _________. When particles are _____ they move very slowly and stick  together firmly. The attraction between the particles is very ______ and in this state the material is  called ______. Solids cannot change their own ______. To change shape, someone or something must apply a _____  (e.g. a push or a pull). When a solid is heated, the ________ begin to move more quickly because they now have more _____.  The attraction between them becomes less strong and they do not stay in a _______ position. Because the  particles are not fixed anymore, they can ____ over and around each other although they are still  attracted to each other and will not split up completely. In this state, the material is called a ________. A liquid’s shape can be changed but its ________  (size/amount) will always stay the same.
