Year 4 started a new topic on Solids and Liquids and today the children have been learning about how particles behave in solids, liquids and gases. They have watched a science video clip about particles and performed a dramatic version of these materials, acting like particles in solids, liquids and gases. ‘The gases’ were the children (playing the part of particles) that were running fast, with lots of energy, whizzing around the room; ‘the liquids’ were children acting rather slower but moving around a confined area loosely spaced and linking up with each other whilst ‘the solids’ were the children (particles) packed tightly together in a confined space with only small amounts of movements.
The children learned that everything in the world is either solid, liquid or gas and that each material has a particular property due to its particle structure. Great work and acting Year 4!
