POM ‘Scrapbook’ Information

Here is all of the information you need for this ‘scrapbook’.

Here is the checkoff sheet for all of the categories. This is general and you will get specific ones for each category.

Here is a list of Ideas to Make your Scrapbook Better that you need to include.

Here is a Rubric to guide you.


Summarize your learning from these labs and add this to your scrapbook:

Density part of scrapbook:

  • Properties of Matter – Physical Characteristics of Matter
  • Density Labs – changing size of sample(aluminum and plastic = still the same density no matter the size), measuring with displacement vessels(irregular shaped objects)
  • Sink or Float – testing different objects to see if they sink or float
  • Wa-tar – testing the density of different water sample sizes
  • Some Like It Salty – Testing the difference salt water makes for density and buoynacy
  • Denser Sensor – testing different liquids’ densities and objects dropped in them
  • Orange Life Jacket Lab – testing how the pulp effects density and whether something will sink or float

States of Matter part of scrapbook:

  • Videos – Brain Pop information
  • Worksheets and notes
  • Make room for me lab( Google Doc)

Boiling Point

  • Boiling Point Lab #1 – Heating curve and showing the melting point of ice and the boiling point of water. Physical changes of water as energy (heat) is added.
  • Boiling Point Lab #2 – size of the sample of water
  • Pressure – Altitude, Weather systems, pressure cooker, etc.. and the effects on boiling point


  • Solubility Lab #1 – what is solubility?
  • Solubility Lab #2 – solubility and heterogeneous vs. homogeneous
  • Mixtures and Solutions Video – you took notes on it
  • Water as the Universal Solvent – reading and video
  • Separating Mixtures Lab #1 – using sand, marble, cornstarch, etc.. and different tools to separate. (Green sheet has your data)
  • Separating Mixtures – desalinization reading and questions about separating mixtures – you have a blog post with your answers
  • Solubility and volume Lab – At different volumes of solvent(water) how much solute (salt) will it take to make a saturated solution? Google Doc used in class and blog post as follow up.
  • Solubility and Temperature – M & M lab – As a class we will discuss the result that some groups found. As well there was a reading and video on solubility and temperature.
