Activity 6: Individual Research Task & Competition:

Hello Year 8s! For Friday's lesson you need to research a state of matter other than solids, liquids gasses and plasma. Here are a list to get you started. Once you have chosen your state of matter, you are to research it and answer the following questions:

What is it?
Under what conditions does it form?
Has it been found? If so, how?
Lots of random fun facts
Pictures / Illustrations

As you research, you must add information to your OneNote to demonstrate progress (I will be checking Friday night!). Don't forget to reference any website articles. This part of the project is individual, but you can choose the same state of matter as a friend.
