Title: Learning about Solids and Liquids: Dissolving "Peeps" marshmallow candies.  
Description: In this lesson, students will experiment with solids and liquids. This lesson will help students to have a higher understanding of solids and liquids, and dissolving solids. Students will carry out the experiment for a week; making observations, recording data, and discussing vocabulary related to the experiment. Data will be kept in a graphic aid (table/chart) on the computer to add to each day the experiment is observed over 5 days. Observations will be entered daily into a graphic aid on the computer. This is a technoligical way to keep up with the data from the experiment.

Subject: Science
Title: Disappearing Water     
Description: In this Science NetLinks lesson, the first in a three-part series, students observe the amount of water in an open container over time, and they observe the amount of water in a closed container over time. Students compare and contrast the sets of observations over time. This lesson is designed to help the students prepare themselves for the idea that most substances may exist as a solid, liquid, or a gas depending on the temperature, pressure, and nature of that substance.

Title: Make it Melt!
Digital Tool: Interactive - Test the Melting Temperatures of Objects
Digital Tool Description: Students will learn that heat must be applied to change some solids to liquids. Students will be able to visualize the process of heating various solid objects in order to change them from one state of matter (solid) to another (liquid). They may then compare/contrast the melting point temperatures to see which objects required the highest/lowest temperatures.

States of Matter: Making Butter
Overview:
The video shows the process of cream changing to butter. The process is compared to water balloons breaking when thrown. There are fat globules in cream which have a membrane around the globules. When the globules are churned and broken the fat, or butter, sticks together.
