Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Phases of Matter: Conduction of Heat


In this lab students will conduct an experiment that will allow them observe how different phases of matter conduct energy differently. Specifically, students will be using marbles (clumped together with different densities) to represent the three phases of matter and see how a golf ball will transfer its energy differently through each phase.

Learning Targets: 
Students will conduct an experiment and observe how different states of matter conduct energy differently.
