Matter Chatter

Fifth graders at AES have been having fun learning about states of matter. They have been observing and investigating matter changing between solids, liquids, and gases. They even watched teachers demonstrate changing gas to solid and solid to liquid to gas to plasma and back!! They were amazed! We made some new materials from styrofoam using secret liquids. We also used Pop Rocks to feel carbon dioxide gas change to a liquid state. We had fun exploring a crazy colloid that would not stay in one state of matter. We learned that matter is super fun to play with and learn from with our friends!
