Middle School Resource: States of Matter
States of Matter
This simulation will allow students to heat, cool and compress atoms and molecules and watch as they change between solid, liquid and gas phases. Using the simulation, students will describe characteristics of three states of matter: solid, liquid and gas.In addition they’ll be able to predict how varying the temperature or pressure changes the behavior of particles.
