Hello, I am a student teacher in 3rd Grade and I am looking for fun, engaging, and educational online resources for states matter. I am looking for reliable online resources for my students to practice states of matter at home with their parents. My mentor teacher is toying with the idea with using these online resources as an alternative way to give homework. The parent will either sign/initial that their child has completed the online activity or send/print a screenshot showing that the child has finished. Let me know what you think about this idea. Thank you so much for your help!

I think you really want https://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulation/states-of-matter-basics
I highly recommend that you register (free) and you will have access to teacher-made handouts and plans to use the simulation. Use these to make up your own worksheet that relies on the simulation and send it home with the students. You can add a request for a parent signature, if you want, or just accept that the students completed the simulation.
I have to ask, do all your students have computers/devices?
Hope this helps,
