Today we did a thinking routine to help us introduce matter. I was AMAZED by their thinking, logical explanations and teamwork! They did awesome! Some of our discussion included:
If gases are invisible how come I have seen gas come from a car? (that was a GREAT discussion).
I know that water is a liquid because I can't hold it. It would fall everywhere.
Miss Law/humans are both solid and liquid. We are solid on the outside but liquid on the inside (blood/water).
It is amazing sometimes what kids are thinking if adults to ask the right questions and then be quiet:)
