Solids, Liquids and Gases

Ontario Science Centre
Ray Boudreau

Solids, Liquids and Gases has 13 experiments carefully chosen by the Ontario Science Centre. With minimal supervision, children can explore the three states of matter, what makes each state unique and how matter changes from a solid to a liquid to a gas through evaporation, condensation, melting and freezing. Filled with bright photographs, the Starting with Science series provides valuable lessons about basic science for five to eight year olds.

“(Solids, Liquids and Gases; Plants; Simple Machines; and Living Things all) offer simple science activities in an appealing format.”

“Until now, there haven't been many good books of experiments for young children that deal with basic scientific principles and include projects that are not only fun, but easy to understand and replicate. Kids Can Press has answered the call with (Solids, Liquids and Gases; Plants; Simple Machines; and Living Things all) ... For a classroom, a child's party or simply a curious budding scientist, Starting with Science is a series that will provide just the needed direction for hours of enjoyable learning.”
