A few questions from Calvin's science book. I was quizzing him today and had to rethink the answers myself. Calvin, however, was able to give me the answers without hesitation. I know they studied this last year in school, but I am just amazed at how young these kids are to know this stuff.
Ahem . . .
- List the states of matter according to the speeds of their molecules, from fastest to slowest.
- In what three states does matter exist?
- Are ice, water and steam different substances? Why or why not? (to which Calvin replied, "They are the same substance, they are made up of the same molecules, they are just in different states of matter."
Does anyone else remember learning this stuff in elementary school?
Calvin has decided that wants to be a chemist when he grows up . . . and also an inventor, and also an author, and also a . . . the list keeps getting longer.
