Mystery Material: Is it a solid or a liquid? part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
In this activity, students will learn that solids and liquids are phases, and terms such as fluid and rigid can describe qualities and are not necessarily related to a single phase. Students will handle a mystery substance that has qualities of both a solid and a liquid. The students will manipulate the substance and record any observations they experience. Students will also answer questions related to their observations of the mystery ooze.
