We use lots for visual resources for learning check out Netflix Magic School Bus. The Magic School Bus Science Kits are perfect to add to your homeschool. You can use them to add more science fun and hands-on learning to your current homeschool science curriculum.
The kit comes with 49 experiences. I love that most of the experiences take less than 5 minutes to do. I work from home so I am always looking for quick hands on learning tools.
Today we chose #15 is it Solid or Liquid ? The mixture feels like a solid at first. After the mixture gets squeezed it becomes a liquid .
Solid is something that does not flow or move (example chair)
Liquid something that flows (example water)
non-Newtonian fluids Mixtures that behave both like liquids and solids are called (example quicksand)
