Chemistry KS4: States of Matter & Separation

Curriculum Support

On Demand

20 mins


Host: Jamie Johnson - BSc (Hons), MSc, PGCE. Jamie is a Science teacher who is passionate about breaking down complex topics into digestible bites for students. 

All matter is made of particles.

The particle theory of matter attempts to describe the behaviour of these particles in solids, liquids and gases, whilst explaining their similarities and differences..

This lesson covers the particle model of matter, as well as changes in the arrangement of particles in all three states of matter.

Safeguarding reminder:  We know that the safety of your child is of the utmost important. This is why we use Zoom's Webinar feature to provide our live classes, where by default, your child's webcam and microphone are disabled. 

Key takeaways:

  • Describe the three states of matter, and their particle arrangements.

  • Describe and explain the properties of each state of matter, based on the arrangement and movement of their particles.

  • Explain how state changes occur, using heating and cooling curves to describe changes in state in a substance.

Suitable for:

This class is suitable for all ages, especially for students looking to revise a key concept in science in Years 10 and 11.
