What is toothpaste?

This week, scientists is 5a were left perplexed (our new word of the week) whilst trying to solve the answer to the question-is toothpaste a solid or a liquid?
The week before we were sorting materials but each group found toothpaste a difficult one to place. This meant that we had to explore further and really understand what it means for a material to be a solid and what it means for it to be a liquid. We know are far more confident with scientific language such as: molecules, bonds, flow, fluid etc and were able to explain our new knowledge to eachother. What do you think toothpaste is? Ask one of the scientists in 5a to find out more.
