Grade Levels: K-3

These family and homeschool activities are designed to complement the Changing States of Matter topic on BrainPOP Jr.

Freezer Pops

Do all liquids freeze at the same rate? Do an experiment to find out together! Find or make different liquids with your child, such as water, milk, juice, rubbing alcohol, and saltwater. Pour small amounts of different liquids into labeled cups. Then put them in the freezer. Every fifteen minutes, have your child check on the liquids. Which freezes the fastest? Which is the slowest? Have your child make predictions.

Condensation and Evaporation

Take a walk with your child and find examples of condensation and evaporation. For example, you might find condensation form on the windows of cars or homes. You might find clothes drying on a clothesline. You might see a fountain spewing water into the air. Have your child take pictures or draw pictures of examples and write a brief description in order to create a reference book.
