States of Matter: Demos, Simulations, and Games

Students will learn about the impacts of temperature and pressure on solids, liquids, and gases by observing and discussing several live demonstrations (baby rockets, condensation, and more) and playing with simulations and games.

Class Experience

Next Generation Science Standards addressed in this class:
*Gases and liquids are made of molecules or inert atoms that are moving about relative to each other. (MS-PS1-4)
*In a liquid, the molecules are constantly in contact with others; in a gas, they are widely spaced except when they happen to collide. In a solid, atoms are closely spaced and may vibrate in position but do not change relative locations. (MS-PS1-4)
*Solids may be formed from molecules, or they may be extended structures with repeating sub-units (e.g., crystals). (MS-PS1-1)
*The changes of state that occur with variations in temperature or pressure can be described and predicted using these models of matter.
Students will be provided the links to the simulations and games.  They will be encouraged to keep playing with them, try out the demonstrations at home, and teach their family what they've learned.  
It is ideal, but not required, that each student is on a computer, rather than an i-pad, so that he/she can take over mouse control during the simulations. Note- I will request that students keep their video cameras on so that I can get non-verbal replies quickly to questions ("thumbs up if you think this substance will turn into a gas").
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
