1 – 6 of 6 Classroom Resources

• Temperature, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Heat, Temperature | High School, Middle School

### Lab: Mega Marshmallows

In this lab, students will investigate the Kinetic Molecular Theory and particle motion while experimenting with a marshmallow. Students will observe how an increase in kinetic energy will cause particles to increase in motion. This concept will be extended into a discussion about additional real world thermal expansion examples.

• Temperature, Gas Laws, Pressure, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Volume | High School, Middle School

### Animation: Gases Animation

In this animation, students will visualize how volume, temperature, and quality of a gas are related. This is done qualitatively and quantitatively. **This video has no audio**

• Temperature, Gas Laws, Pressure, Molecular Motion, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Intermolecular Forces, Volume | Middle School, High School

### Lab: Gas Pressure

In this lab, students will understand what causes pressure in a container and the variables that affect pressure (volume, temperature, number of moles) by mimicking molecular motion of gases.

• Density, Temperature, Gas Laws, Density, Pressure, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Ideal Gas, Scientific Method, Volume, Experimental Design | Middle School, High School

### Activity: Hot Air Balloon

In this activity, students use their knowledge of Charles’ law to build a hot air balloon and evaluate its design.

• Temperature, Gas Laws, Pressure, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Volume, Graphing | Middle School, High School

### Activity: Simulation Activity: Gas Laws

In this simulation, students will investigate three of the fundamental gas laws, including Boyle’s Law, Charles’ Law and Gay-Lussac’s Law. Students will have the opportunity to visually examine the effect of changing the associated variables of pressure, volume, or temperature in each situation. Also, students will analyze the gas samples at the particle level as well as manipulate quantitative data in each scenario. Finally students will interpret trends in the data by examining the graph associated with each of the gas laws. This lesson accompanies the simulation from the November 2015 issue of Chemistry Solutions.

• Temperature, Gas Laws, Pressure, Molecular Motion, Kinetic Molecular Theory, SI Units, Volume | Middle School, High School

### Activity: Simulation Activity: Gas Law Variables

In this simulation, students investigate variables of a gas. From the computer models, they can see how pressure, temperature, and volume effect gas behavior.
