A change of state between solid and liquid can be caused by adding or removing heat

Elaborations

  • investigating how liquids and solids respond to changes in temperature, for example water changing to ice, or melting chocolate (Skills: Numeracy, Critical and Creative Thinking)
  • exploring how changes from solid to liquid and liquid to solid can help us recycle materials (Skills: Literacy, Critical and Creative Thinking)
  • predicting the effect of heat on different materials (Skills: Literacy, Critical and Creative Thinking)
