Science investigations May 2015

Here we are busy investigating gases as part of our Solids, Liquids and Gases topic. We have looked at the differences between solids, liquids and gases. In this investigation we found out that gases will stay inside a sealed container, that they are often invisible and that they will escape if the seal is broken.


We all got a bit wet when the gas from the balloon escaped!!
