"States of matter" looks at important topics in chemistry, such as solids, liquids and gases, changes of state, the water cycle, and mixing solids, liquids and gases. There are seven informative experiments that can be carried out at home, and useful diagrams, including the periodic table.
With more than two dozen fascinating projects illustrating major chemistry themes; including atoms and molecules; the characteristics of solids, liquids, and gases; chemical reactions; acids and bases; and the properties of water;children learn the theory behind each project and then see the principles in action. A combination of wacky experiments, yummy cooking projects, and unusual creations, the activities can all be completed using common household materials.
Does mass change when water freezes? What is the source of the gas in a seltzer tablet? How is the rate at which something rusts affected by different chemicals? Learn to build your own chemistry lab with simple materials found around your home. Then it is time to start experimenting! Find answers to these and many other questions, along with great ideas for your own science fair project.
