This week we introduced states of matter in science! We did some reading about solids, liquids, gases, and talked about characteristics of each.
I love the “Let’s Read and Find Out” science series! This one is perfect for introducing states of matter.
We did a little experiment mixing baking soda (solid) with orange juice (liquid) to create bubbles (gas)! You could also do the classic volcano experiment with baking soda and vinegar, but we just wanted to try something new this time.
We also made this representation of the atoms in each state of matter using cheerios! It was a simple, yet fun way to help the kids visualize the concept.
