Activity 1:

Write your own definitions of the 5 list words I have given you. Use an example in each definition.

Experiment- a test, trial, or tentative procedure-e.g what a great expiriment
Viscosity- the property of a fluid that resists the force tending tocause the fluid to flow-e.g this has low viscosity
Hydrogen- a colorless, odorless, flammable gas that combines chemically withoxygen to form water-e.g. there is hydrogen in water
Helium- an inert, gaseous element present in the sun’s atmosphere and innatural gas-e.g there is helium in balloons
Composition-the act of combining parts or elements to form a whole-e.g One covers the underlying composition

Activity 2:

Write a paragraph that explains what you know about the four states of matter. Try to use as many of your list words as possible. Underline your list words.

Thre are 4 states of matter liquids which are runny ( you measure the runniness in viscosity) and there are gases (like helium and hydrogen) and there are solids and plasma. You can combine a number of these to make a composition. The reason we know so much about this is because we con ducted expiriments.
