Three States of Matter

Moving like molecules is a really fun way to learn about the three states of matter.  Solids have molecules that move slightly, have a shape and have volume; liquids have molecules that move a lot, take the shape of its container and have volume, while gas has molecules that are free forming and have volume.  

The students have been busy writing in their notebooks about the three states of matter.

At the same time, these scientists are learning about the Water Cycle particularly condensation. We have completed two labs regarding condensation with cups of cold water and warm breath on cold windows...water vapor is a curious thing.
