Copying book illustrations and states of matter

In art we copied some of the illustrations from our class book 'The Legend of Spud Murphy'.  The original illustrations are by Tony Ross and we enjoyed copying them using our whiteboards and pens.  Here is some of our artwork, which you can compare with the original picture in the book (on the right!).

Solids, liquids and gases

Our science topic this term is 'States of Matter' and this week we sorted solids, liquids and gases.  We learned about their properties, for example a solid keeps its shape and stays where it is placed.  Also, in a gas the particles spread out and can move quickly in all directions.
