9:12-9:58 WINN
10:01-10:47 Period 1
10:50-11:36 Period 4
11:41-1:01 (includes lunch as usual with usual times) Period 5
1:04-1:50 Period 6

Core Ideas:

  • The changes of state that occur with variations in temperature or pressure can be described and predicted using models of matter
  • Heat refers to energy transferred due to temperature differences between two objects

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Get out the States of Matter simulation papers. There are three of them- one on water, one on Neon, and one on phase changes. Compare your models of water and neon in each of the three states of matter- solid, liquid, and gas. How are they the same? How are they different?
  2. Modeling– Describe how matter changes when temperature increases and when it decreases. Be sure to explain what happens to the arrangement, attraction, and movement of particles.
  3. Educational video- Bill Nye the Science Guy & Phases of Matter
