Solid, Liquid, Gas Extension Activities

If you missed my first post on Solid, Liquid, Gas - go check it out!

We checked out the book Change It! from the library. It was perfect for my kid's ages (4 & almost 6) and had a lot of neat ideas to explore the concepts of solid, liquid, and gas.

Solid: Make playdough and explore the idea that a solid can be stretchy and malleable and still be a solid.
Liquid: Pour 1 c of water into 3 different size containers w/ food coloring.  Talk about water being able to change shape to fit each container.  My kids were amazed that the amounts were the same!
Gas: Pour vinegar in a water bottle, and baking soda into a balloon.  Fit the balloon over the lid of the water bottle and drop the baking soda into the vinegar.  Watch the balloon expand as the gas created fills the balloon!
