A Story of Changes in Matter Comic Life Chemistry Project When matter changes state from solid to liquid or from liquid to gas, changes also occur on the level of the particles that make up the material. In each state, particles are arranged in a characteristic way and have particular amounts of energy. In this project, you are to use the concepts you are learning about in class to create a comic strip that demonstrates how particles of matter behave as they change from a solid to a liquid to a gas and then back from a gas to a liquid to a solid. To successfully complete the project, you must do the following: 1. Use pictures, drawings, and words to describe what happens to the particles as they change from a solid to a liquid to a gas and back again. Comic strips may be in color or black and white. 2. Outline your comic strip in a storyboard format. 3. Use Comic Life to complete your work. 4. Correct grammar and spelling will count! Be sure to do a check before submitting your assignment! 5. Have fun and be creative! You should use approximately 2-3 pages to tell your story. You may use additional pages if necessary, but anything in excess of 4-5 pages will negatively affect your grade. Final submissions should be sent to me via email at email@example.com by 2:30pm Thursday, December 6, 2007. THIS IS AN ASSESSMENT THAT WILL COUNT TOWARDS YOUR GRADE ON YOUR REPORT CARD! The following Maine State Standards will be assessed with this assignment: 1. B1g: Communicate scientific procedures and explanations. 2. D3c: Describe the differences between physical and chemical changes. 3. D3d: Explain the relationship of the motion of atoms and molecules to the states of matter for gases, liquids, and solids.
