This set of activity stations are perfect for helping students use their understanding of phase diagrams to examine 6 different full page phase diagrams! These graphs were created in Illustrator and feature carbon dioxide, nitrogen, bromine, krypton, water, and sodium. Created using publicly available data, these close-approximation graphs are truly unique and all have the same scale, allowing students to really compare them!
There are three different activities that a teacher could use and each comes with teacher instructions, teacher answer keys, and print and go student pages. Each instruction sheet lists what prior knowledge is needed to complete the activity. Please examine the preview to really see everything that is included with these activity stations.
The activities included are the following:
1. A Phase Diagram Matching Game! Students match a small data card with triple point, critical point, and boiling/melting point data with the phase diagram at each station. If you use 6 tissue boxes, you can have students place their matches next to each phase diagram and make it into a game, awarding points to the team that matches the most correctly!
2. Phase Diagram Analysis Questions: During this activity, students rotate to different stations and answer questions about each graph on one recording sheet (front and back). You have the option of having them match the data card to the phase diagram as in the matching game activity.
3. Phase Diagram Planetary Fun: During this activity, students can move around to different stations and try to figure out what phase a substance would be in under different planetary/sun/moon conditions! This is designed for more advanced students.
