Woah! Stop the Presses!

07 Oct

There are MORE THAN 3 states of matter!!

Why didn’t anyone say something?!

My teachers told me there were 3 states of matter:

Solids, liquids and gases.

My textbooks say there are 3 states of matter:

Solids, liquids and gases.

But as homeschoolers we learned that there are MORE THAN 3 states of matter.

In fact,

there are 4 states of matter that are observable in everyday life

-solids, liquids, gases and plasma-

and more (e.g. Bose-Einstein Condensates) if you want to move into exotic states of matter.

Truly!

I know you don’t believe me.

Go and Google it.

I promise you – there are more than 3.

Thank goodness we homeschool.

Someone needs to tell those teachers they are teaching it all wrong.

    Don’t forget the state of an over-tired, hungry kid under teasing pressure from an older sibling. I believe the technical term is “total meltdown.”

    Yes, there’s that too. It’s a pretty common state. 🙂
