This is what I printed out to refer to during the lesson:
To Have Prepared:
-a collection of items that can be sorted into states of matter
-boxes or signs marked ‘Solid’, ‘Gas’, and ‘Liquid’
-Liquid – water or anything that flows like water; syrups may flow slowly; liquids are kept in containers
-Gas – air or anything that behaves like air; all smells are something in gas form
-Solid – any and all things that have a distinct size and shape; will sit by itself with no need for container; may be hard/brittle, soft/flexible, light/heavy
-What about sugar or Cream of Wheat? Test ‘Does it keep its shape’?
-What about balloons?
-What parts of your body exemplify different states of matter?
Water comes as liquid, solid and gas
Solid <-> liquid.
-Classify ice cube. Watch it change to water. So is it solid or liquid? States change. Present state is what is important.
-How do the changes occur? Lead to understanding that temperature is almost always involved.
-What about butter or wax?
Liquid <-> gas.
-Something wet dries…what happened to the water? Called WATER VAPOR.
-what are smells? Try coffee, spices, alcohol, essential oils
Matter and States of Matter
-another form of classification, right?
-make book illustrating 3 states of matter
-What is the one word that embraces all solids, liquids and gasses?
-Body is made of three states of matter. Where?
-Could an actively living organism be entirely one state of matter?
-What is generally involved in causing a change in state?
-Do metals and rock change their state? What about blowing glass?
-What is supercooling?
