In this SIMPLE, FUN and ENGAGING lab, students investigate how heat and temperature affect the movement of water molecules using food coloring!! Teachers address the NGSS Performance Expectation MS-PS1-4. Develop a model that predicts and describes changes in particle motion, temperature, and state of a pure substance when thermal energy is added or removed.
It is a great inquiry-based lesson that leads into solids, liquids, and gases as well! It can be used as a single lesson or created into a unit with other resources that provide students with more evidence to evaluate their initial models. This lesson also includes a teacher prep, conclusion questions, and an answer key!
It aligns with the following NGSS Next Generation Science Standards Performance Expectation:
MS-PS1-4. Develop a model that predicts and describes changes in particle motion, temperature, and state of a pure substance when thermal energy is added or removed
