Science Investigations

This week in Science we will continue our study of Matter investigating how heat changes matter. We will do several investigations about cooling matter and observing the changes that this makes. Next week we will investigate Mixtures. If you would like to send in a mixture for the class to look at , or perhaps eat, that would be fun. Ahana and her mother are making Fruit Salad. Mixtures are a combination of two or more substances which can be separated . The mixtures do not have to be edible. It could be a collection of things that are magnetic and not magnetic and you demonstrate how to separate them! This is a fun time to share with each other.
