What's the Matter? Solids, Liquids, and Gases
Here's a quick activity that students can do to compare the degree of transparency among these different types of paper: Use three similar flashlights, a rubber-band to secure each sheet of paper over the face of the flashlight. Turn of the classroom lights to get the room dark enough, then flick on the flash lights simultaneously to shine at the wall. Have fun! #science #experiments

Chromatography is the technique of separating the components of a mixture by absorption, like in this experiment. Standard: SC.2.P.8.1: Observe and measure objects in terms of their properties, including size, shape, color, temperature, weight, texture, sinking or floating in water, and attraction and repulsion of magnets

I wish I had lessons like this when I was trying to learn :) Great activity during a weather unit. 2 liter soda bottle cut in half. Put about an inch and a half of warm water (w blue food coloring) in the bottom. Invert the top of the bottle with the lid on and fill with ice. Watch the water condensate and watch it "rain" THIS is brilliant!
