Students should be aware that substances can assume different states of matter at different temperatures. One possible teaching method for the introduction is “think-pair-share”:
“Who knows a substance that is solid or liquid at different temperatures?”
Depending on the age of the students, you can have the whole class play a game:
Low temperatures: Students are firmly connected through their hands (solid state)/Higher temperatures: Students are moving around, constantly forming new connections with each other.

One item deals with „Technical application and vocational orientation“.
