My Story of Changing Matter One day I was eating ice cream after my team won a soccer game. It was a very hot day that day. I went to get changed out of my uniform. When I returned I found my ice cream had melted. The heat changed my ice cream from a solid to a liquid. This was one of my personal experiences with changes of states of matter.
