Description:

Students often have a hard time with the Kinetic-Molecular Theory concept.  I do a brief demonstration of how a drop of food coloring disperses in cold water, room temp water, and hot water to provide a visual of how molecules are moving and at different rates.  Then I give them the writing prompt to apply to the 3 basic states of matter.
