Title: Name That Change! (Physical and Chemical Changes)
This lesson teaches students to distinguish between physical and chemical changes. Students will view an interactive slideshow presentation and then conduct experiments to discern physical and chemical changes.
Standard(s): [S1] (3) 2: Identify physical and chemical changes of matter.
Title: States of Matter: Making Butter
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. Standard(s):
[SC2015] (2) 4: Provide evidence that some changes in matter caused by heating or cooling
can be reversed (e.g., heating or freezing of water) and some changes are irreversible (e.g., baking a cake, boiling an egg).
Title: What Happens When Matter Comes Together
When matter comes together it creates an explosion. Also if it is controlled right it can be a great fuel source. This video describes why this happens. Standard(s):
[SC2015] PS8 (8) 4: Design and conduct an experiment to determine changes in particle motion, temperature, and
state of a pure substance when thermal energy is added to or removed from a system.
Title: In an Instant: Vase Shattering
We recently purchased a high speed video camera. It is part of our Institute of Museum and Library Science (IMLS) grant. The goal We recently purchased a high speed video camera. It is part of our Institute of Museum and Library Science (IMLS) grant. The goal is to excite an interest in science by showing the dynamics involved in collisions, acceleration, high speed reactions and motion. This is the first complete video we filmed. It was shot at 600 frames per second. VISIT OUR BLOG at http://exploreum.blogspot.com/ AND SUGGEST SOMETING FOR US TO FILM AT HIGH SPEED. IF WE LIKE YOUR IDEA, IT MAY JUST END UP ON YOUTUBE AND THE EXPLOREUM WEBSITE.
NOTE: This video does not include audio. Standard(s):
