States of matter

Today the children have been thinking about whether a material is a solid or liquid and how and why it changes. We began with a solid and then added a liquid. The result was a matter that kept changing from solid to liquid: gloop. It was great to see the children exploring, getting messy and using fantastic descriptive language such as: slobbery, slippery, wet, slimy, like a slug, wiggly, squelchy and squashy. The children also noticed that it went from 'hard to soft'. We discussed why we thought the gloop kept changing from 'hard to soft': 'If we play with it, it goes hard'. Great exploring children.
