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.

How does a "One-Time" class work?
Meets once at a scheduled time
Live video chat, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Great for exploring new interests and different styles of teachers

I have two big goals for this class. 1. After taking this class and practicing the simulations, each student will master the national standards (NGSS) concerning phases of matter. I have thoughtfully planned and prepared for the class so that the students learn A LOT in our 1 hour together. 2. Each student will have a great experience and hopefully a lot of fun! I want students to want to learn science! We will accomplish these two goals by doing several thought provoking and...
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").
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
