Fun states of matter interactive
Adjust the temperature and pressure and watch what happens to different materials.

Heat transfer and efficiency activity (BBC Bitesize)
Watch the animation on conduction, convection and radiation then do the quiz!

Energy and specific heat capacity (BBC Bitesize)
Read all about energy, temperature and specific heat capacity. Then try the test!

Gas Laws (BBC Bitesize)
Read all about the link between the pressure, volume and temperature of a gas, including Boyle's Law. Then do the test!

Gas Laws using interactive animations (PhET)
Run the simulation. Pump gas molecules to a box and see what happens as you change the volume, add or remove heat, change gravity, and more. Measure the temperature and pressure, and discover how the properties of the gas vary in relation to each other.

States of matter using interactive animations (PhET)
Run the simulation. Watch different types of molecules form a solid, liquid, or gas. Add or remove heat and watch the phase change. Change the temperature or volume of a container and see a pressure-temperature diagram respond in real time. Relate the interaction potential to the forces between molecules.

How to make a hot air balloon (Kitchen Science)
Make a hot air balloon from things you have in your kitchen and fine out abotu convection

Heat transfer by conduction, convection and radiation
Find out about conduction, convection and radiation with this animated interactive activity.

Gas Properties Animation
Play with the gas in the chamber. Pump some gas in, change the temperature and look at what happens to the pressure.
