State of Change

This term, our inquiry unit is called ‘State of Change’. We are learning about the states of matter and doing different science experiments. We have learnt that the different states include solids, liquids and gases. Solids are usually hard and don’t change shape. Liquids can change shape and they can be poured but they can’t change size. Gases are usually not visible and they can change shape and they take all the room that they are given.

Some experiments we have completed include:

  • Making popcorn
  • Making a volcano
  • Making sherbert
  • Making invisible ink
  • Melting chocolate

This is a video of one of our science experiments.
