Chapter 1: Matter—Solids, Liquids, and Gases Note: Some solids, liquids, and gases are made of atoms, and some are made of molecules. Since the concepts covered in Chapter 1 apply to both atoms and molecules, the term “particle” is used as a generic term to include both. At this point, it is enough to give students simple working definitions of “atom” and “molecule.”

Microbiology Unit Study This school year I had planned to use Ellen McHenry’s Cells with my highly creative 10 year old visual-spatial learner. We had both really enjoyed her Excavating English book, but I can’t say our experience was similar for the cells book. My son was not connecting with the material. If I have learned anything about teaching this kid, it is that we are wasting time if the material isn’t connecting with him. After several weeks using the Cells book and trying a few different ways to make it work, I decided to ditch it in favor of a personalized unit study. I knew he would do well with that format. ahomeschool.wikispaces Activities for Learning the Elements Glossary of Chemistry Terms Lab Equipment Chemical Substitutions What is Matter?Matters Changing State 12 Snazzy Educational YouTube Channels If a picture is worth a thousand words, videos must be priceless, making YouTube an invaluable educational tool.

Students explore the attractions and motion of atoms and molecules as they experiment with and observe the heating and cooling of a solid, liquid, and gas. Indonesian Volcano Erupts Electric-Blue Lava An Indonesian volcano has erupted what appears to be electric-blue lava flows, as photographed by Reuben Wu. Although surreal, this bright blue coloration is a result of nothing more than a tweak of chemistry. Volcanoes come in a variety of destructive flavors, both on Earth and on other planetary bodies in our Solar System. Shield volcanoes like Kilauea effusively erupt lava, fairly slow, over long periods of time. Tall, mountainous stratovolcanoes like Mount Fuji remain silent for many hundreds of years before unleashing their cataclysmic fury on the world.
