In Science class, we have been exploring states of matter over the last couple of weeks. Last week, we learned about the changes in states of matter (for example: solid turning into a liquid when heated)…. and today, we got to see it in action!
Morah Lianna explained that she was going to boil water and pour it over ice. All of the Grade 2 students had the opportunity to make predictions on our Jamboard…
“What do you think will happen to the ice and water?”
We were thrilled to see that most of our predictions were correct! It was fun to watch the water bubble as it boiled and it was crazy to see how fast 4 or 5 ice cubes melted! We were even able to see the steam coming out of the kettle!
Keep the discussion going at home! Next time you are boiling water for pasta, pouring a glass of water with ice, or even bringing snow into the house on your boots, ask your children to tell you about the different changes in states of matter that they notice!
