This week students continue to investigate properties of water and observe the phenomenon of how temperature affects water’s state and density. Students use standard metric units to measure temperature and observe the properties of water as it is heated, cooled, and frozen. We will also construct a thermometer and find that water expands as it is heated. Students compare the density of water at different temperatures and find that warm water is less dense than cool water, and that ice is less dense than liquid water. We’ll then go outdoors to investigate melting of ice in different conditions.
Quizzes are graded and coming home this week!
