Solids, Liquids, Maple Syrup!
On your mark, get set, pour! Your first grader has probably already noticed that some liquids, such as pancake syrup, pour slower than liquids like water. While this topic is always fun (and a little sticky) to explore in the kitchen or at mealtimes, it’s good first grade science, too. In fact, a common core topic in early elementary school science is the difference between solid and liquid states of matter. And you don’t need any fancy lab equipment to learn about it. Use the activity below to help your budding scientist become familiar with the properties of liquids and solids.
