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.
