A great lab to demonstrate how matter changes state. Students will heat up ice to water to vapor and record the changes in temperature. Students will also be able to graph the results of time v. temperature.
Main topics: states of matter, solid, liquid, gas, change of state, temperature, graphing.
Quick and easy to use. You can get a lot of mileage out of heating water.
