States of Matter

We used thermometers to measure temperature accurately.  We had to estimate the temperature of different things first, which led to some interesting ideas!

We worked in groups to think about the properties of solids, liquids and gases.

Can you walk on a pool of custard?

 

Off course, the answer must be no we all thought!  Well, not after our experiment today.  We investigated making cornflour slime, which acts in a very strange way.  Keep it moving in your hand and it acts like a solid, but the second you stop moving it,  it acts like a liquid.  We watched a video clip that showed a man running across a giant pool of this custard like mixture.
