  • Explained the differences between melting, vapouring, and things being in the same state based on temperature.
  • Used test tubes with coloured water, oil, and honey to demonstrate different liquid densities.
  • A volcano model was created, and baking powder and vinegar were used to demonstrate how heavier components were closer to the earth's core and burst out at that moment and students were exhilarated to watch how volcano erupted.
