Liquids and Solids; A Discussion and Books
Mom: What is a liquid?
James: Something that doesn't have a shape.
Quentin: Something wet.
Mom: What is a solid?
James: Something that is hard.
Quentin: You can't pour it.
Mom: What about sugar? You can pour sugar, can't you?
James: Yes, but they are tiny pieces of solid things.
Mom: Right, just like in the "Two Bad Ants" story we read.
James: The sugar was hard to the ants.
Quentin: What about salt?
Mom: Good question. I have a book that has pictures of what things look like under a microscope. Let's see what sugar and salt look like.
We sat cozy on the couch and read "Greg's Microscope."
