Science

Last week we learnt about the different states: liquid solid and gas. 

This week, we will be learning about how the state can change. For example when it is hot, a solid ice cube can melt into a liquid. 

Melting and cooling can cause states to change.

There is an investigation for you to try today! You may not be able to measure the water temperature, so just do cold, warm and hot.
