Title: What's the Matter? Solid, liquid, or gas?
Science kids Web Address URL:
[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).Digital Tool Description: This digital tool is an interactive way to experiment with solids, liquids, and gases. Students are challenged to find the correct category for other examples such as milk, sand, rain, helium, wood and air. Watch what happens when you heat liquids and cool gases.
Title: All About Matter

[SC2015] (5) 3: Examine matter through observations and measurements to identify materials
(e.g., powders, metals, minerals, liquids) based on their properties (e.g.,
color, hardness, reflectivity, electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity,
response to magnetic forces, solubility, density).Digital Tool Description: What is matter? It's solids, liquids, and gases and it can change states through heating or cooling. Want to know more? Watch this three minute video — and try singing karaoke — and learn all you need to know.
Title: Make it Melt!
Interactive - Test the Melting Temperatures of Objects Web Address URL:
[SC2015] (2) 1: Conduct an investigation to describe and classify various substances
according to physical properties (e.g., milk being a liquid, not clear in color,
assuming shape of its container, mixing with water; mineral oil being a liquid,
clear in color, taking shape of its container, floating in water; a brick being
a solid, not clear in color, rough in texture, not taking the shape of its
container, sinking in water).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.
