Changes in Matter Science Lesson

Different Forms Water Takes? Water can be a solid, liquid or gas. When it is a solid it is ice or snow. When it is a gas it is water vapor, or steam. Changing the Temperature of Water Water comes in three different forms. It can be a solid (ice) a liquid (water) or a […]

Animal Classification

Classifying Animals When you classify an animal you place it in the group to which it belongs. All animals are divided into groups. The major groups are fairly simple. Each group is then divided into smaller groups, and divided again, until you eventually place the animal in its exact position in the classification of the […]

Changes in Matter Investigation

How Can Water Change? Investigate: You will need: Four ice cubes Three plastic plates or bowls A pot Paper and pencil to record your results Method: Put one ice cube in each plate or bowl. Put them in different places around the room. Put one in the sun by a window, or under a desk […]

Solar System and Weather Earth Science Unit

Earth Science Articles deal with various subjects relating to the planet we live on. Also termed as Geoscience, the subject is a unique case in planetary science due to its exclusive life form. The subject also often involves physics, geology, mathematics, chemistry and biology for a comprehensive knowledge of the Earth’s functioning. The various branches […]

Earth’s Tilt

The Earth is a sphere. It can be divided into two hemispheres, the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. The best way to understand this is to make a model. You will need an orange, or any other spherical object that you can pierce, a marker and a knitting needle skewer or sharp, thin stick. Take the […]

Direct and Indirect Light

Direct Light Produces More Heat For this we will do another very simple experiment. You need a flashlight and a piece of paper. First of all you need to experiment a little with the flashlight. Put your hand up against the light source. Feel that it is warm. Move your hand away just a little. […]
