CMS students learn about the states of matter

Campbellsville Middle School fifth-graders are learning about the states of matter.

 

In Donna White’s science class, students are learning about gases, solids and liquids.

 

During a recent class activity, students studied the difference in physical and chemical changes, and mixtures and solutions.

 

Students were given a plate containing a mixture of pretzels, cereal, candies and more. They were asked to use a spoon to separate each item into its own pile.

 

Afterward, students were given a cup containing a powder. When water was added, the powder became an orange drink.

 

When their experiments were complete, students answered questions about the differences in their mixture of snack foods – which could be separated – and their orange drink solution, which couldn’t be separated.
