The fourth graders of the Bais Yaakov Academy of Queens learned and tasted how science plays a part in our daily lives and how delicious scientific results can be! After learning the unit of states of matter and physical and chemical changes, the girls did a “cool” hands-on activity to bring the concepts to life!

They placed bagged liquid mixtures containing milk and vanilla and placed them in larger bags of ice and salt. They had a great time tossing the bags back and forth and shaking them for as long as their hands could handle the cold. After a while, their liquid mixture turned into a solid! A physical change! What a delicious way to see their science lessons come to life!

The girls really enjoyed the special treat, and the lessons they learned will stay with them for a long time! We can’t wait for more exciting learning!
