Classroom Resources: States of Matter
1 – 10 of 10 Classroom Resources
Heat, Law of Conservation of Energy, Specific Heat, Temperature, Calorimetry, Phase Changes, Boiling Point, Melting Point, Heating Curve, Intermolecular Forces, Molecular Motion, Phase Diagram | High School
Lesson Plan: Phase Changes and Heat Transfer
The AACT high school classroom resource library and multimedia collection has everything you need to put together a unit plan for your classroom: lessons, activities, labs, projects, videos, simulations, and animations. We constructed a unit plan using AACT resources that is designed to teach the Phase Changes and Heat Transfer to your students.
Intermolecular Forces, Phase Changes | High School
Activity: The Behavior of Solids and Liquids
In this activity, students will be able to explore and explain behaviors of liquids and solids based on the individual particles in the states of matter
Intermolecular Forces, Physical Change, Intermolecular Forces, Polarity | High School
Activity: Intermolecular Forces Activity
In this activity, students will represent molecules and energy to investigate the different types of intermolecular forces.
Intermolecular Forces, Intermolecular Forces, Physical Change | High School
Activity: Simulation Activity: Intermolecular Forces
In this activity, students will use a simulation to investigate different types of intermolecular forces (London dispersion and dipole-dipole). In the analysis that follows the activity, they will relate IMFs (including hydrogen bonding) to physical properties (boiling point and solubility).
Physical Change, Intermolecular Forces, Heating Curve, Phase Changes, Graphing, Heat, Exothermic & Endothermic, Temperature, Freezing Point, Melting Point | High School
Lab: Heating & Cooling Curve
In this lab, students will create a phase change graph by adding and removing heat to observe and record data during actual phase changes.
Intermolecular Forces, Boiling Point, Heat of Vaporization | High School
Lab: Heat of Vaporization
In this lab, students test whether a substance’s heat of vaporization is determined by its molar mass, the strength of its intermolecular forces, or both.
Pressure, Gas Laws, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Temperature, Volume, Molecular Motion, Intermolecular Forces | High School
Lab: Gas Pressure
In this lab, students will understand what causes pressure in a container and the variables that affect pressure (volume, temperature, number of moles) by mimicking molecular motion of gases.
Intermolecular Forces, Mixtures, Intermolecular Forces | High School
Lesson Plan: Fuel Line Antifreeze
In this lesson students will explore the role of a gasoline additive, fuel line antifreeze (generally methanol or 2‑propanol), in reducing the potential of water to block fuel lines in freezing weather. Students will prepare test tube models of water-contaminated fuel tanks and explore the effect of adding different types of fuel line antifreeze. This lesson can be used to bolster concepts about miscibility, density, intermolecular forces, phase changes (freezing), and colligative properties (freezing point depression).
Intermolecular Forces, Solubility, Intermolecular Forces | High School
Lab: Physical Properties (High School)
In this lesson, students investigate how intermolecular forces effect physical properties by investigating substances’ melting points as well as solubility.
Entropy, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Molecular Motion, Intermolecular Forces | High School
Activity: Connecting States to Entropy
In this activity, students use blocks to model different states of matter and the Kinetic Molecular Theory to understand the concept of entropy. This is a concept mandated by SAT level or AP level high school chemistry class.
