Classroom Resources: States of Matter
51 – 56 of 56 Classroom Resources
Solubility, Physical Change, Phase Changes, Reaction Rate, Solute & Solvent, Molecular Motion | Elementary School
In this lesson, students learn that particles that make up matter are in constant motion.
Observations, Phase Changes, Physical Change, Temperature | Elementary School, Middle School
In this lab, students will explore the process of condensation. Students will investigate how water vapor condenses, and then they will conduct a comparison test to see if cooling water vapor has an effect on the rate of condensation.
Observations, Phase Changes, Combustion, Scientific Method, Experimental Design | Middle School, High School
In this lab, students accumulate observations of a candle including a look at the combustion reaction's reactants and products.
Separating Mixtures, Mixtures, Physical Change, Physical Change, Phase Changes, Introduction, Interdisciplinary, Distillation, Solute & Solvent, Mixtures | Elementary School
In this lesson, students review important concepts of the water cycle and then design, test, and evaluate a working model of a desalination plant (a distiller).
Melting Point, Freezing Point, Phase Changes, Molecular Motion, Heat, Temperature, Heating Curve, Graphing | Middle School, High School
In this lesson, students will create a particulate model of matter that explains energy changes and transfer during a phase change.
Melting Point, Freezing Point, Phase Changes, Molecular Motion, Heat, Specific Heat, Temperature, Intermolecular Forces, Heating Curve, Boiling Point, Heat of Vaporization , Heat of Fusion | Middle School, High School
In the May 2015 issue, students explore the heating curve for water from a qualitative and quantitative perspective. Students compare illustrations of each physical state depicted on the curve and calculate the energy required to transition from one state to another.
