This site's activities offer students unique ways of looking at and understanding states of matter. In the activity, “Materials Smackdown,” students choose a pair of materials to see which one is stronger. It gives information about each type of material and then allows the student to see which material is stronger/can withstand more pressure. In another activity called “The Transformer,” students choose between three materials: silicon, iron, and carbon, and see what they are able to transform it into by heating, treating, and/or applying pressure.
