Students in Jodi Carder's third grade class considered states of matter with a fun experiment!
They used clear, carbonated soda to make raisins and other dried fruits dance! 
First they talked about liquids, gasses and solids as a class. Then each student wrote down a prediction of what might happen when they combined the fruits and soda in a clear cup.
During the experiment they delighted in watching the bubbles of carbonation (gas) lift and ricochet the raisins (solids) around the soda (liquid). 

Check out this video to see the experiment.
