This is a great little package! A 13 slide PowerPoint jam packed with information on the following topics: Kinetic theory, average kinetic energy (temperature), boiling vs. evaporation, boiling point, heat of vaporization, melting point, heat of fusion, diffusion, heating curve of a liquid, thermal expansion, behavior of water, amorphous solids and liquid crystals. Five pages of perfectly correlated student note sheets included. Two labs: The first is a very simple cornstarch and water lab just to get students thinking about what defines a solid/liquid, etc. The second lab requires Bunsen burners and has students record temperature and states of matter changes in water as it goes from ice to liquid water to steam. Students then graph their results and answer questions based on their graph. The last assignment is a handout with 5 real-life application questions. Answers are included. A great homework assignment or for use as a group work assignment in class to get students really thinking about and applying kinetic theory. All of these products are geared toward 8th graders and should not be used for students any younger. I feel these assignments are appropriate for up to 11th grade. Please see the preview so you know exactly what you are getting. Thank you!
