In year one science, kids are often introduced to a topic that they’ll continue to study in many forms for years ahead: the changing states of matter. They’ll learn, for instance, how when you heat ice it melts into water and then eventually turns into gas.
But, of course, that’s not true for everything in nature. Take eggs, for example, which are used constantly in cooking. Try this science exploration with your year one scientist, and help her explore the changing states of matter which transform an egg from raw to soft to hard-boiled.
