Solids, liquids and gases is the current science topic in Year 4 at Michael Faraday School. We have started our work by thinking of definitions to describe these states of matter. The children soon found that a property may belong to more than one of these groups as it can change matter.
A practical piece of learning took place. A selection of solids, liquids and gases were presented on each table. Each group had the task of sorting these into the correct category.
This work was logged in our science books. We used a Venn diagram to help show how a matter might belong in more than one of the categories. The pupils were also asked to write a short sentence to describe each solid, liquid or gas.
