The three states of matter are solid, liquid, gas....all day long!

Well, the past couple of days, we've been learning about matter and the three states of matter (Solid, Liquid, and Gas). We sang a little song to the tune of "Wheels on the Bus." The girls loved it and it can be quite catchy! It goes like this...

The three states of matter are solid, liquid, gas,
Solid, liquid, gas; Solid, liquid, gas.
The three states of matter are solid, liquid, gas,
All day long.

The floor is a solid; you can jump up and down,
Jump up and down; Jump up and down.
The floor is a solid; you can jump up and down,
All day long.

Water is a liquid you can drink right down,
Drink right down, Drink right down.
Water is a liquid you can drink right down
All day long.

Air is a gas you can breathe right in,
Breathe right in; Breathe right in.
Air is a gas you can breathe right in,
All day long.

The three states of matter are solid, liquid, gas,
Solid, liquid, gas; Solid, liquid, gas.
The three states of matter are solid, liquid, gas,
All day long.

We also did an experiment called sink or float. The girls had fun with this. We had to hunt down items that were in this game that I cut out originally for a file folder, but we turned it into a game and experiment. So we got a paper clip, pencil, salt, nail, scissors, feather, leaf, etc. and we did an experiment on each item to see if it would sink or float. This is also great for cause and effect. We did that too! The girls loved it. Anything hands on, they love! I've posted pictures!
