    I will use this is a group activity to encourage dialogue about what a solid, liquid or gas is. I do think the inclusion of clouds is quite tricky one for this age group. Although I would classify them as gases for this age group, they are technically a mixture of all three.

    Used to reinforce practical task and as a quick assessment. Some children still find things like syrup and toothpaste difficult to sort!
