Leyden, Michael B.
Teaching Pre K-8, v24 n2 p36-37 Oct 1993
Describes several projects that allow students to explore what happens to gases, liquids, and solids as they are heated or cooled. The projects were specifically designed to counter the popular misconception, based on observations that water in the liquid state expands when it is cooled, that all matter in all states expands when cooled.
