Weeks 1-4: Matter - Solids, Liquids, Gases
Students are introduced to the idea that matter is composed of atoms and molecules that are attracted to each other and in constant motion. Students explore the attractions and motion of atoms and molecules as they experiment with and observe the heating and cooling of a solid, liquid, and gas.
Weeks 5-8: Changes of State
Students help design experiments to test whether the temperature of water affects the rate of evaporation and whether the temperature of water vapor affects the rate of condensation. Students also look in more detail at the water molecule to help explain the state changes of water.
Weeks 9-12: Density
Students experiment with objects that have the same volume but different mass and other objects that have the same mass but different volume to develop a meaning of density. Students also experiment with density in the context of sinking and floating and look at substances on the molecular level to discover why one substance is more or less dense than another.

Instructor: Kathleen Duncan is a homeschool teacher with over nine years' experience. She was homeschooled herself from kindergarten all the way through twelfth grade and truly loved it. Kathleen attended California State University Fullerton, earning a bachelor's degree magna cum laude. Her initial plan was to teach public high school, but by then she was already working with homeschoolers and was hooked. She now works with students of all ages and in nearly every subject, both one on one and in class settings.
