Liquids are fluid and change shape depending on what’s holding them(i.e. cup, bowl, pool etc)
They can be thick or thin.( i.e. Different densities) Liquids can flow fast or slow.( This depends on the viscosity of the liquid.) Liquids can be different colours and some liquids are poisonous! Some light things can sit on or float on some liquids. (surface tension)

Some of 4K’s Liquid word list:
Oozing, fluid, drips, runny, drink, dangerous, rushing, flowing, falling, dense, wet, moist


4J’s definition of a liquid:

­Liquids can be thin and thick.

Liquids can also come in a range of colours.

Liquids can be heated and cooled.

A liquid is something that you cannot hold.

Some liquids like fruit juices can also have pulp suspended within it.

L­­­iquids do not have a permanent shape, but some can be frozen into a 3D solid.

It is hard to show someone unless it is in a bottle or container.

All liquids have a different viscosity.

Liquids are usually a wet, moist material; they can also have a strong scent.

A liquid is a flowing state of matter.

Most liquids can also be evaporated.

Scientists have different names for liquids like H2O but we recognise them as what they are.


Well done 4j


4O Definition of a liquid;

a liquid will pour
a liquid is runny
if you put it into a container it will become that shape
different liquids have different viscosity
liquids have no permanent shape
a liquid is something you can swallow without chewing it – but all liquids aren’t safe to swallow!
you can’t cut liquid
a liquid like honey has a high viscosity


4G Definition of a liquids – Runny, can go through it, can be turned into a solid or gas, takes the shape of its container – but so does sand, can drink some of them, can’t hold it in your hands.

Do you agree? Can you add to 4G’s definition?
