Solid, Liquid, Gas

Fun preschool balloon experiment on a hot, sunny day.

Ella's Conclusions:  

Gas is lighter, and the balloon is fun to watch fly around when you let the air out.  
Liquid is heavier than gas and bouncy
Solid is heavy,'s the heaviest...cold and heavy.  I need my gloves.
Can you help me, mom
She had the most fun with the solid, throwing it at different objects to see what would make it break.  She also recognized that the solid was just like the liquid balloon before it was frozen.  

We filled another liquid balloon and froze it tonight because she wants to do the experiment again tomorrow;).  It will be interesting to see if she has any additional conclusions;).
