Delicious States of Matter

First graders concluded our lessons about matter with some delicious treats!  We used root beer floats to visualize the different states of matter.  The root beer was our liquid, the ice cream was our solid, and the bubbly foam on top was a result of the gas. For many of the students this was also their very first root beer float! A huge thank you to the Hazelgrove family for providing all of our supplies for the root beer floats!  We also explored changes in matter by making our own bags of ice cream in small groups. This helped students to see first hand how liquid can change to a solid by decreasing temperature.  What a “sweet” way to finish these lessons!
