For the first week of literacy in room 5 we have been learninng about the states of matter. In reading we were given this activity to complete before the end of the week. The three main states of matter that we learnt about were solid, liquid and gas. Give three examples of each state of matter?
What’s the difference between the three states of matter?
A solid is something that is hard.
Liquid is something that is wet.
Gases give people or things air.
Write 3 sentences explaining something new you learned from this reading.
Juliet , Koula , Alizhay
Liquid: When you are holding a water bottle it gets heavy but when you drink it , gets lighter every time you drink from it , even takes up space.
Solids: Solids have weight they even take up space , but there are different kinds of solids , just like a basketball , Ice cubes and gold.Gases: Gas is another thing that takes up space , for example air can take up space in a rugby ball.
Alizhay, Juliet, Koula- From watching the video we learnt the difference of the three matters, The three matters are liquids, solids and gases. All three matters have weight and take up space. While water is in a water bottle it weighs something and takes up space on the inside of the bottle, but if you drink the water it starts to get lighter. A solid also has weight and takes up space, Some solids can also turn into a liquid. Gas is just like the other matters they have weight and take up space, Gas is like air. Air can take up space inside something like a ball.
