3 States of Water

This afternoon our learning intention was to explain what the 3 states of water are. We poured liquid into different sized containers and the liquid took the shape of the container. We looked at the ice and discussed that when liquid is cooled to below 0C it becomes a solid. Then we boiled a jug of water and watched water vapour (steam) come out of the top. We put a mirror over the jug and collected the steam, when the steam cooled down it turned into small droplets of water called condensation.

Here is a website that we used to learn more about the 3 states of water. Can you answer the questions on the quiz?
