- Adapt the interactive to include a scenario that adds heat, then ask the class to describe what will happen to the motion of the atoms
- Use the resource in conjunction with interactives that show liquids and gases to allow learners to compare the properties of the three states of matter
- The interactive makes a great day one activity for beginners in the study of states of matter
- Atoms exhibit true-to-life movement throughout the interactive
- Trace a Random Atom feature does not work
