As I continue to try to add to the FOSS Solids and Liquids unit, I find more fun and hands on ways to add matter activities beyond bottles and beans. These 10 activities extend to all three states of matter and connect them to real world activities from hot cocoa to toothpaste, Oobleck to Jello your kiddos will enjoy this pack...no MATTER what. Also included, is a FOSS review lapbook that I am using to review solids and liquids with my science classes. It is a fun and effective way to start teaching our students ways to study.
