WHAT’S THE “MATTER” MR. SNOWMAN?

Mrs. Licari’s 3rd graders enjoyed a fun physical science lesson this week demonstrating changes of state. First they started with a liquid, and created a solid with a temperature change (Freezing), then they created a liquid again with another temperature change (melting). These two concepts were not new to students, but when they fried up poor old Frosty and watched the liquid evaporate and then condense on the glass lid and return back to a liquid, NOW they had some excitement going on! Students learned lots of new vocabulary words and some realistic visuals for understanding.
