This term our science topic is States of Matter

There are three states of matter: solid, liquid and gas.


Today we are learning about liquids:


A liquid has a fixed volume but changes in shape to fit the container. A liquid can be poured and keeps a level, horizontal surface.

Some liquids flow less easily and are slow to pour.

Science Vocabulary

Viscous: A viscous liquid flows less easily and is slow to pour.

Viscosity: The ‘thickness’ of a liquid is known as its viscosity. Viscous liquids like syrup and honey have a high viscosity. Liquids that flow easily like milk and water have a low viscosity.
