Dust_v3In class, we are learning about different properties and forms of matter.

There is a very fun game which is a particle simulator. This game is called “Dust” (see it at http://www.notdoppler.com. You’ll see Dust as a link on the right side of the screen under Top 10 Games).

Here’s a screen I made showing a summary of different kinds of particles.

If anyone has any ideas for any new particles in the game, please write.

Zack, I enjoyed reading your blog and trying the game of “Dust” on NotDoppler.com. Your instructions on locating were excellent and including a screen shot was great.http://www.harcourtschool.com/activity/states_of_matter/index.html http://www.harcourtschool.com/activity/mixture/mixture.html http://www.sciencekids.co.nz/gamesactivities.html Hope you and your classmates enjoy these web sites. Maybe my school’s fourth grade can Skype with your class someday.

Thanks for sharing,
Mrs. Burgess

Thanks, Mrs. Burgess!
That’s a terrific simulator you shared. We will be studying mixtures and solutions soon and that site will be a great resource for us. It would be terrific to work on something collaboratively. Does your class have a blog?
