Title States of Matter - Lab Simulation - student procedures and questions
Description Objectives: 1. Explain the relationship between temperature of a substance, the state of matter of the substance, and the kinetic (motion) energy of the particles. 2.Identify common characteristics of each state of matter related to particle motion, particle arrangement, and distance between particles. This is a student-use packet. It includes procedures for students to follow which leads them through the States of Matter simulation. Students answer open-ended questions as they work through the procedures. Objectives of the lesson are listed at the beginning, and those objectives are met when the students complete the conclusion questions at the end of the packet. This is written for use in a computer lab and will likely take middle school students 60-75 minutes to complete, not including any discussion before or after the packet.
