I'm squuueeeezzzing this one in right under the wire - a matter resource designed to help your kids understand how matter (solid, liquid and gas) changes AND give you some usable gifts for Mother's Day or Father's Day (or just Loved One's Day!). :)
One of my favorite experiments is this liquid viscosity experiment (which ties in to a "breakfast in bed" motif).
I designed this experiment knowing that one of the toughest things to understand about solids is that things like salt, sugar and flour are all solids - they're just verrrrrryyy small pieces - they don't "flow" like liquid, they tumble!
Kids will explore gas properties by blowing bubbles ...
And learn about melting solids by making a crayon sun catcher!
Just a little taste of what's inside (you can see the table of contents above!) - pop on over to my store if you're interested in seeing more!
