Solids and Gases

The year 5s have been exploring the properties of solids and gases. Firstly they conducted tests on different solids to determine the properties of solids. Then they conducted an experiment finding that the tissue in the bottom of the cup stayed dry when the cup was placed upside down in a bucket of water. Using this evidence they could make the claim that air takes up space.
