In science we will jump into changes of matter. Hopefully the next few weeks we will be able to see some real changes in matter with the melting of ice and snow outside.
This week is an introduction of what a solid is and what a liquid is. They will cut out different pictures from magazines, newspapers and other media to glue on a chart. They will work both in small groups (with their tables) and with the whole group to sort various objects.
Science terminology will also be important as we learn about solids and liquids. Knowing that solids can have: color, texture, shape, and size and liquids have no shape unless they are in a container, size is based on its volume and can also have color and texture. We will do many fun experiments this week describing different solids and sorting solids based on their characteristics. There is a fun experiment with soap, water and corn syrup to show and discuss textures of liquids. This study will lead us up to spring break most likely.
