St John the Baptist Roman Catholic Primary School Love One Another


Topic 2: States of Matter

We are exploring

States Of Matter. 




We have been exploring the different characteristics of

solids, liquids and gases



We decided to investigate


Is sand a solid or a liquid?


Using the microscopes we looked closely at the sand in a lab dish to help develop our understanding. 


We came to the conclusion that

sand is a solid.


It has the ability to be poured like a liquid and take the shape of its container. It is still a solid, as each individual grain of sand has a shape of its own and keeps that shape.


We were so fascinated by the microscopes that we decided to look closely at our fingerprints and other solids around us.
