What's The Matter?
The first grade students at Rea View have been studying the three states of matter: solid, liquid, and gas. Dr. Grattan, who is a Chemistry Professor at Winthrop College, came in to Ms. Hyman's class to demonstrate making a solid from a liquid, making a gas from mixing liquids together, and making two liquids change colors when mixed together.
The students were able to visualize the properties of the three states of matter! His daughter, Anna Grace, even helped assist her Dad to create a secret message that appeared and disappeared on paper!!
After this informative, hands-on presentation, many of Ms. Hyman's students said that they were ready to register for Dr. Grattan's Chemistry class and looked forward to becoming scientists when they grow up!
