Too many missed opportunities for important graphics, especially a phase change triangle: solid-liquid-gas-solid (including explanation of sublimation). This diagram can then be animated in various ways to illustrate the explanation, including latent heat release/absorption during phase changes. Photo images of each phase, and film of each phase change in action would then be very useful.
