1. The program is introduced by stating that matter is all around us.
2. Participants make observations about liquid Nitrogen.
3. State of matter are introduced. Participants move to show how molecules contract and expand depending upon the state of matter.
4. Tube Balloon experiment
5. Oxygen Balloon experiment
6. Changing a Solid
7. Fire ball - Plasma Model
-Name the states of matter
-Outline the relationships between the states of matter, temperature, and volume
-State how heat moves from something that’s warm to something that’s cold
-Explore density of different types of matter
-Discuss combustion and the components required for fire.
-Describe some of the processes of science.
-Recognize some safety equipment used in the study of chemistry.
Next Generation Science Standards:
2 PS1-1,4; 4 PS3-2; 5 PS1-1,3; MS PS1-4,5
K.PS.1 Plan and conduct an investigation using all senses to describe and classify different kinds of objects by their composition and physical properties. Explain these choices to others and generate questions about the objects.
1.PS.1 Characterize materials as solid, liquid, or gas and investigate their properties, record observations and explain the choices to others based on evidence (i.e., physical properties).
2.PS.1 Plan and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties.
2.PS.3 Construct an argument with evidence that some changes caused by heating and cooling can be reversed and some cannot.
4.PS.5 Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents.
7.PS.1 Draw, construct models, or use animations to differentiate between atoms, elements, molecules, and compounds.
7.PS.2 Describe the properties of solids, liquids, and gases. Develop models that predict and describe changes in particle motion, density, temperature, and state of a pure substance when thermal energy is added or removed.
8.PS.3 Use basic information provided for an element (atomic mass, atomic number, symbol, and name) to determine its place on the Periodic Table. Use this information to find the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons in an atom.
