Phase Change Poster Parts



5min Students complete the Do Now by answering the question on the handout.

15min< Students watch video to collect temperature data and observations. Students concurrently graph the data and answer questions between data collection times. (Video is played at double speed to save time.)

5min Class discusses findings and observations on temperature and phase changes.

15min< Students create an ideal Phase Change Chart, based on their observations/data, and add labels to identify the phases and transitions at each point in the chart.

5min Clean up. Wrap up.
