SCIENCE
We Eat Matter!

I have my 2nd graders keep a running list of all the things they have eaten that day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The next day, we then separate the items into two different categories- solid matter and liquid matter. For example, if they ate cereal at breakfast, then the cereal would be a solid and the milk would go in the liquid category. We then discuss some questions about what we ate. "As a class, did we eat MORE liquid matter or solid matter?" "Which was tastier- the liquid matter or the solid matter?" A lot of interesting questions AND answers are discovered through this activity.
