Frame prim. 31 - Water Song Sing Along. A Matter of State. A plastic bottle is compressed following a flight Photo Credit: Korte Purpose To help students understand that particle movement changes as a substance changes from one phase to another phase.

A Matter of State

Context This lesson is designed to give students the opportunity to observe a phenomenon created by particle movement. Prior to this lesson, students should have been introduced to the notion that matter may go through different phase changes. This particular benchmark may be difficult for students to grasp because middle-school and high-school students are deeply committed to a theory of continuous matter. Additionally, many students do not understand that all substances undergo some type of movement.

Emphasis needs to be placed on helping students understand that there are different motions exhibited by substances in their respective phases. Motivation Ask students to write descriptions of the three common states of matter. Development Break the class into lab groups of four to five students. Hot Air, Cold Air Science Activity. One of the most amazing highlights of my trip to Dubai was the opportunity to fly in a hot air balloon with Balloon Adventures Emirates.

Hot Air, Cold Air Science Activity

It was incredible! The hot air balloon ride is the inspiration behind The Hot Air, Cold Air Science Activity. There is so much science behind the idea of hot air balloons and I thought that sharing the photos with my children of the balloon ride would be a great opportunity to extend this learning into a science activity. This Hot Air, Cold Air Science Activity is a great experiment to watch the effects of hot air and cold air on a balloon. Investigating Condensation and the Water Cycle. Step-by-step Lesson and Free Printables Most kids are familiar with the terms precipitation, condensation, and evaporation, but very few of them really understand what those words mean.

Investigating Condensation and the Water Cycle

Just ask your students to name three examples of condensation in everyday life and watch their eyes glaze over. Huh?? Most kids understand that precipitation is a fancy word for different forms of water falling from the sky, like rain, snow, and sleet. Most kids also understand that evaporation is what happens when water "disappears" on a warm day, such as a puddle drying up. Everest. Drinking Water Activities for Kids and Teachers. h2opollutionhotspots. Clean and plentiful water provides the foundation for prosperous communities.


We rely on clean water to survive, yet right now we are heading towards a water crisis. Changing climate patterns are threatening lakes and rivers, and key sources that we tap for drinking water are being overdrawn or tainted with pollution. Pollution has a profound effect of water worldwide. Water. Communication 4 All Resources to Support Inclusion This has opened in a separate window - just exit to return to the Themes page.

Objectives. Earth Floor: Cycles. The Water Cycle Water on Earth is always changing.

Earth Floor: Cycles

Its repeating changes make a cycle. As water goes through its cycle, it can be a solid (ice), a liquid (water), or a gas (water vapor). Ice can change to become water or water vapor. Water can change to become ice or water vapor. Label Water Cycle Printout. Advertisement.

Water Cycle- Ideas for Teaching, Resources for Lesson Plans, and Activities for Unit Planning

This an awesome picture book that I use every year during our water unit. "Drop", the main character, travels the world, from the sky, to a trough, through a cow's stomach, back to the sky, down as snow, through a river, down a waterfall, into a water treatmetn plant, into a glass of water, out as sweat on a little girl's forehead, etc. etc. etc. My kids then write their own traveling water drop stories during writing workshop. They turn out really great!!! The Three Forms of Water. Pure water is tasteless, odorless, and colorless.

The Three Forms of Water

Water can occur in three states: solid (ice), liquid, or gas (vapor). Solid water—ice is frozen water. When water freezes, its molecules move farther apart, making ice less dense than water. This means that ice will be lighter than the same volume of water, and so ice will float in water. Water freezes at 0° Celsius, 32° Fahrenheit. Liquid water is wet and fluid. Water as a gas—vapor is always present in the air around us. The water vapor attaches to small bits of dust in the air. States of Matter for Kids.

Water cycle for kids. The water cycle is a way in which water moves around the world. Without it, nothing would grow and humans would not be able to live. It starts in the ocean, where the heat of the Sun turns sea water into vapour, tiny droplets of water which float in the air - this process is called evaporation.

Water vapour rises into the sky to make clouds. The wind blows the clouds over land and they drop their water as rain, sleet or snow. Interface. The Water Cycle. Readers' Theater Script: Water Cycle.

Student worthiness Tried once by us and worked well. Primary biological content area covered The students will get an understanding on the stages of the water cycle and will be able to visually see how water evaporates while salt, a solid at room temperature, does not.

Individual student materials: Water Cycle handout Handouts Lesson plan 1. 1. 1. How to Make a Cloud. What is a cloud exactly? We look at them every day, but few of us realize what they are made of. In a nutshell, clouds are collections of tiny water droplets, formed when the warm air that is being heated by the sun's rays meets the cold, damp air coming up off the cold ground. Little water drops form into clouds. The water drops are so small and light that they can float in the air.

When enough water droplets have gathered together, they get too heavy to float and fall down as rain. Okay, so now you know how to explain clouds in plain English. What You Need: Glass jar Piece of black paper but to fit halfway up around the jar Tape Hot tap water Match Ice cubes in a plastic bag What You Do: Tape the piece of black paper around the bottom half of the jar. Have an adult light the match and hold it over the jar opening for a few seconds. Questions to ask your child: What happened to the air in the jar? What did the ice cubes do? Clean Water Using the Sun! Can you think of a way of cleaning dirty water using the sun? How about getting salt out of water using the sun? In this activity, you will be making a "solar still" that's able to do just that! What You Do: Mix salt into some tap water and put the salty water in the bottom of your basin.
