6th Grade Studies States of Matter

Students in sixth grade science explored properties of different states of matter.  They looked at different substances  to see crystalline structures to practice observing solid, measured the volumes of liquids and discovered how the surface tension of water will help them float a paper clip.  Students also tested different liquids for viscosity by watching them flow down a board.  To remind them that gases shape and volume, students measured a balloon before and after being filled with a gas.  They also noticed a difference in the shape of the balloon.
