The “S.T.E.M Labs Bundle Water Cycle” contains five labs for middle school, aligned to the NGSS (MS-PS1-4 Carrying out Investigations about particle motion, temperature change and changing of state), this product is ready to use.
You will be able implement student-center activities using this inquiry-based labs and keeping your students engaged. Your students will be learning about the changes of state of matter, investigation motion of particles, thermal energy, phase changes and changes in temperature.
Power point presentation of the labs included!
Labs included: ( 30 page total)
* -Pre-lab and Five labs of hands on activities about the Change of State of matter
*Pre-lab Activity- Changes in State: Informational text analysis and think-pair-share activity.
Lab. 1- Investigating Heat and the Motion of Particles: Analyze how water behaves as it transitions through phase changes.
Lab. 2 - Vanishing Act: Understand what happens to a substance when thermal energy is added or removed.
Lab. 3 - States of Matter: Flash simulation internet lab.- Evaluate virtual models to describe the molecular properties of the states of matter
Lab. 4 - Phase Changes Observations: Create and explain a graph of temperature change during phase changes.
Lab 5- Particles on the Move: Prove that the molecules of substances are constantly moving.
Lab 6- Expansion of a Gas: Explain what happens when we heat and cool air
Each lab contains :
