Its All About Matter and Pancakes!

This week we ended our matter unit. We decided to show the different forms of matter by making pancakes. We also showed how heat can change matter. We started with our solids (flour, sugar, etc.) then we add our liquids (milk, water, etc). We mixed them all together and discovered that our solids had become liquid. We talked about why this had happened. Then we heated up the griddle and sprayed with non stick spray. The kiddos got so excited as the steam came up from the griddle. We poured the batter onto the griddle and the little ones watched the batter change into a solid. They were so excited and talked about it the whole time they were eating. I love the excitement of my little ones.
