Solids, Liquids and Gases
This resource aimed at Key Stage Two, links to the topic areas of states of matter and properties and changes of materials. It provides background knowledge for teachers and a range of activities which explore the properties of solids, liquids and gases. It also highlights the problems children encounter when learning about them and provides science poems and a concept cartoon to promote discussion to develop understanding.
Ideas for investigations and demonstrations include: looking at solids with air trapped in them, viscosity of liquids and reactions which produce carbon dioxide. There is also a focus on the key scientific skills of carrying out a fair test, choosing and using equipment accurately, observation, recording and working cooperatively in a group.
