Ideal for grades 5-8, students investigate the relationship between temperature and kinetic energy of particles. In this lesson student will be watching a simple phenomenon – water changing state from solid, to liquid, to gas. In the lesson they will be asked to graph their data and create a heat curve. Students will then begin an investigation into the particle theory and how state change and temperature lead to a change in particle movement in water.
After completing this lesson, students will be able to:
