States of Matter Stations Debrief


Today you will have some time to complete any stations that you still need to finish. Below are suggestions of what you should have in your Matter Section of your Scrapbook for each station:


Station 1: Vocabulary

a) Make sure these vocabulary words/definitions are in your science notebook. These words are “flaps” where the definition is on the reverse side of the word.

b) These words should be included in your vocabulary area on your Matter Section.

Station 2: Effects of Pressure and Altitude on Melting/Boiling Point

NOTE: This section should be on your Boiling Point Section of your scrapbook.

a) How does pressure cause the melting point to lower? Include an example given from this station and the video links to support your answer. Add an image into your scrapbook to visually explain what is happening.

b) How does altitude change the boiling point?  Make sure you give examples either from the Mt. Everest video link or the Inquiry 6 Activity 2 (green paper)as part of your supporting evidence in your answer.  Add a photo or graph

Station 3: Temperature and Volume

a) In your scrapbook, describe what was done in the lab demonstration.

a)Describe what happened to the circumference of your balloon when the gases inside the balloon went from room temperature to a cooler temperature. Describe your prediction of what would happen if you would place the balloon into hot water.

b) Why did the volume of the balloon change? Describe the particle movement and energy of the particles at a gaseous state of matter. What is happening to the energy and movement as the gas cools?

c) include a picture

Station 4: Characteristics of Matter

a) For each state of matter you should have :  a photo, description of how particles are arranged, how particles move, explanation of whether it has a definite shape or volume. include a few examples for each state of matter (The game you played had numerous examples)

b) Include some information about plasma and any other states of matter that you might have found or heard of.

Station 5: Changes in States of Matter

a) Discuss what is happening with the particles as they change from each example given.  Describe the movement of particles and if there is energy loss or energy gain between the different states.

b)Include the image into your scrapbook. (download off of document on MyDragonnet)
