What's the Matter?
Mrs. McCutcheon’s second grade class went on a field trip to Discovery Place recently. As part of the experience, the children were able to participate in a class on matter.
The children were immersed in hands-on learning through a variety of experiments.
The experiments involved all three states of matter. A highlight of the matter class was when the instructor took liquid nitrogen (negative 300+ degrees) and poured it onto the carpet and watching it quickly evaporate.
We also enjoyed the other exhibits and many of our students got to pet a ball python snake. It was a productive and fun filled learning day!
