We started off with a science experiment. With all this warm weather we've been talking a lot about the states of matter and melting. In order to learn a little more about how states of matter can change we decided to figure out how to melt an ice cube the fastest. Check out our methods:
We also honed our dictionary skills. We've learned how to alphabetize and so we looked up the words evaporation, condensation, precipitation, water, cycle, and science. We took note of the guide words up top that helped us find the right pages. Some words have more than one definition, this is where we had to use our detective skills to see what made sense in context! Ask us about nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs over dinner tonight!
Lessons learned from a dictionary: don't take things out of context!
