Melting Materials!

Over the last two weeks in science we have been investigating materials – including solids, liquids and gasses.  This week – the ultimate test meant we got to see how chocolate and ice changed state when we applied heat.

Of course that meant we had to try it, so the children got a chocolate coin and had to rest it on their tongues to see how the solid changed gradually into a liquid as it melted.   That was tricky not to chew! The ice we held in our hands and looked at how it changed from a solid to a liquid.  The discussion led on to what caused it, how the molecules had changed and also whether we could reverse the states back to a solid.  We also discussed that fact that water could be a gas as it got hotter and hotter.
