No matter how hard you try, you cannot destroy or create matter. Join Kipp Lawton as he conducts fun experiments to explore how the law of conservation of matter applies to phase changes. The experiments show that even when matter goes through phase change, the amount of particles does not change. A change in phase only effects how close the particles are in a substance.
This video satisfies the 5-PS1-2 requirement of fifth-grade science proficiency.
Students who demonstrate understanding can: 5-PS1-2. Measure and graph quantities to provide evidence that regardless of the type of change that occurs when heating, cooling, or mixing substances, the total weight of matter is conserved.
