Eight grade students at Allapattah Flats K8 are learning about various kinds of matter. They were extraordinarily excited to learn about physical and chemical changes with hands-on activities in the science lab. Students were able to test a variety of chemicals and determine whether the reactions they saw were physical or chemical. They learned about suspensions, mixtures, and more through smell, sight and touch. Pictured, from left, are Autumn Washington, Sharon Charite, Sandy Simon and Jayda Hill as they dive right in to their next test tube waiting to see the reaction.
