Physical Science. Lesson at a Glance: Curriculum: Delta Science Modules “States of Matter” Grade: Sixth Topic: Melting Point of Ice During the two weeks prior to the lesson seen in the video, the students had been studying various kinds of energy transfer with their teacher Gina Robertson.

Physical Science

In this lesson, Paula asks the students to put a thermometer in a glass of ice and take a reading. They then remove the thermometer from the ice and place it in a glass of warm water. As the students watch the volume of the red liquid in the thermometer expand, they speculate that it is because it has absorbed “heat energy” from the warm water. Paula comments, “First I wanted to develop the idea that the same amount of matter, which is that red liquid, can somehow occupy two different amounts of space, and why that’s happening.” About Booklets - EAL Science Project.

Plants. If you're not a microbe and you're not an animal, you are probably a plant.


There are about 300 thousand known species of plants. Because plants adapt so well to almost any climate, scientists needed a way to organize the hundreds of thousands of species. In the same way there is a system of classification for animals, there is also a system of classification for plants. What do plants have in common? Photosynthesis is the biochemical process that connects plants. Matter: Evaporation. Sometimes a liquid can be sitting in one place (maybe a puddle) and its molecules will become a gas.

Matter: Evaporation

That's the process called evaporation. It can happen when liquids are cold or when they are warm. It happens more often with warmer liquids. You probably remember that when matter has a higher temperature, the molecules have a higher energy. When the energy in specific molecules reaches a certain level, they can have a phase change.

You might be wondering how that can happen when the temperature is low. The energy you can measure with a thermometer is really the average energy of all the molecules in the system. The rate of evaporation can also increase with a decrease in the gas pressure around a liquid. The Evaporative Stress Index (NASA/GSFC Video) > Chemistry Activities and Games Free Downloads.
