Science today!

Science Today!

When I poured the liquid into the cylinder the water was the same amount as the water in the beaker. The beaker can hold more water than the cylinder. The beaker can hold MORE.  The volume does not change- the shape changes. Same amount of liquid.
The modeling clay weighs the same whether it is a ball or a giraffe-- same amount of matter!
Solids- frog, chair, desk,
Liquid- lemonade, water, oj
gas- helium, oxygen, carbon dioxide

She is not correct!  Her blood is a liquid, her bones are solids, and she breathes gas. All three states of matter are in her body!
CUBE of steel vs CUBE of foam!
steel is denser because foam is light and airy~ foam can be easily broken! 

It has air bubbles in it!

This week we learned about matter. All matter  has something called an atom. An atom is a micro-object that can hold a solid together , make a liquid take the shape of its container, or let a gas move freely. What  is  also important is volume and mass. Volume is the amount of space the matter takes up. Mass is the amount of matter an object has.

This week we learned about sugar. When sugar touches your tongue, certain cells send signals to your brain. When you swallow dompine is released which makes you feel good. When the sugar goes through your intestines and your stomach makes more dompine. This makes you want more!

This week we learned about matter. Matter is all around us.There is 3 states of matter. The first state of matter is solids.Every solid thing in the world is a solid.I'm even a solid!The second state of matter is liquid.Just remember if your'e washing your hands and your brother says YOUR'E TOUCHING MATTER don't get scared because every liquid is matter.The last state of matter is gas is just gas.It sounds boring but it is really important.Steam is matter.Now matter is very important if there was no matter we would not be alive to this day.
