States of matter – weekend challenge

We’ve begun a new science topic by examining a variety of solids and liquids and thinking through the differences between them.   You can see what we came up with below. 

We also began to talk about the different arrangement and movement of the particles making up solids and liquids.  This week’s challenge – for young scientists who want to develop their thinking and knowledge on this topic – is to look at this explanation of the difference between solids and liquids (and gases) and see whether you can use it to explain some of the differences between solids and liquids that we observed.
