Home Learning 12-12-08

12 Dec

This home learning is linked in with the previous post on the blog.  I want you to post your ideas on Solids and Liquids (and Gases) on the blog.  If you have discovered something new, then let me know about it and we can celebrate your learning.  Include any facts or explanations you can think of.  If you choose to not post comments, then have a think as we will be doing our melting experiments next week and the information may be useful.

    You can pour solid e.g sand or flour.
    You can pour stones and bricks but on a much bigger scale.

    I have learnt that a solid is something that is hard and cannot be broken easily (e.g) wood, ice and sand. I have also learnt that a liquid is something runny and that can usually be poured (e.g) syrup, rain,milk and paint. a gas is something like smoke, hellium and air.

    When I think of liquids and solids, I think of making jelly. You buy the jelly as a solid. Then you add hot water to dissolve the jelly cubes. It then becomes a liquid. Then you leave it to set and it returns back to a solid!

    The thing I never knew was that sand and sugar were solids! I had never really thought about that before! I have really enjoyed this topic!

    Do you know what temperature salt melts at?
    (I do).
    The answer is 800 degrees centigrade!

    All of the substances are made up of tiny particles called Atoms . They are the smallest things !!!
