Twenty-four creative, teacher-tested experiments entice students in grades 6 through 8 to explore firsthand the properties of the three states of matter--and the concepts of the changes of state between them--using toys and other everyday materials. While learning about the properties of solid, liquid, and gas, students will attempt to get a balloon into a bottle, watch a marshmallow expand and contract inside a syringe, boil water with ice, and much more. Developed with funding from the National Science Foundation, these ready-to-use, reproducible activities are designed to meet--and are clearly referenced to--the National Standards for Science Education.

24 teacher-tested, toy-based activities, created with funding from the National Science Foundation Boil water. . .while cooling it with ice! Demonstrate how air takes up space. . .using a bottle that burps! Investigate the relationship between pressure and volume of a gas. . .with a marshmallow inside a syringe! Innovative investigations like these will empower students in grades 6 through 8 to explore the states of matter and changes of state--using inexpensive toys and common household items like balloons, paper bags, Silly Putty, facial tissues, and plastic Easter eggs. Classroom-tested and proven effective, these activities draw students in with toys gadgetry, fun-to-do experiments, and observations of scientific phenomena in everyday events. Students will see solid rock candy form as a sugar solution evaporates; inflate a balloon using dry ice; and use the BedBugs game to learn about the behavior of solids, liquids, and gases. You'll find 24 motivating, reproducible projects in all--ready to use, and clearly referenced to the National Standards for Science Education, with comprehensive materials lists, procedures, content review, and extension activities included. Teaching Science with Toys in an activity-based, discovery-oriented approach developed by National Science Foundation-funded teacher training programs at the University of Ohio. The programs promote toys and household items as ideal science materials because they're already a user-friendly, everyday part of a young person's world.
