Coffee Roasting Observations (Use/turn in observation sheet)
Ice Cream Lab: Cold Milk
Cold Milk Lab: Measuring Energy Transfer in the Creation of Ice Cream
Read the background info and then create a hypothesis before starting the lab
At the end of this experiment you will have ice cream that is solid. When the cream reaches a solid phase, do you think the temperature of the ice will be the same as the temperature of the cream, higher than the temperature of the cream, or lower than the temperature of the cream?
Make a hypothesis stating what you predict the temperature will be in relation to the temperature of the cream at the conclusion of making ice cream, with an explanation of why you believe this to be true.
The law of conservation of mass: In any physical change or chemical reaction, mass is conserved; mass can be neither created nor destroyed.
Additional Question for the Popcorn Lab:
With that law in mind, explain how the volume of popcorn was able to change.
If we had not used an aluminum cover, the mass of the flask would have decreased after the Zea mays everta had popped. Why would the mass have gone down? Does this disprove the law of conservation of mass?
We are going to take some time to explore matter. We will break into groups of 2-4 people and each person will research one of the following realms. We will group back together and then each group will share out what they discovered. Each group will produce a poster that will help describe matter.
Changes in Matter
What is MATTER?
How can you describe changes in matter? What is the difference between physical change and chemical change?
What are atoms?
How can you describe something? What is the difference between physical properties and chemical properties?
