Today, we began our new topic in science on states of matter. We started it all off by trying to work out what the definition of a solid, a liquid and a gas was. First we had to decide whether an item was a solid, liquid or a gas and then write some of the words we could use to describe that item. Following that, we investigated what happened when water was poured into different containers - we noticed that the water always took the shape of the container it was in, this was different to a solid! Finally, we looked at some more tricky items like sugar, flour and sand. We tried pouring them into different containers and noticed that, although they poured like a liquid, all the little grains of sand, flour and sugar piled up on top of each other, which meant they couldn't be a liquid. We concluded that they must then be solid!
