Instructional Ideas
  • Create a large scale that shows Celsius, Fahrenheit, and Kelvin and their equivalents
  • Compare the particles in solids, liquids, and gases to bouncy balls in a box on a moving truck; when they are tightly packed, they don't do much; when there are about half as many, they bounce around and hit each other; and when there are only a handful in a large box, they fly all over
Classroom Considerations
  • Requires prior knowledge of particles
  • The second in a four-part series
  • Explains where each scale is used
  • Highlights new vocabulary throughout
  • None
