Subjects: Physical Sciences
Program Type: Demonstration (Live Science)
NYS Standards:

  • 2-PS1-1. Plan and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties.

  • 2-PS1-4. Construct an argument with evidence that some changes caused by heating or cooling can be reversed and some cannot.

  • 5-PS1-1. Develop a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen.

  • 5-PS1-2. Measure and graph quantities to provide evidence that regardless of the type of change that occurs when heating, cooling, or mixing substances the total amount of matter is conserved.

  • 5-PS1-3. Make observations and measurements to identify materials based on their properties.

  • MS-PS1-4. Develop a model that predicts and describes changes in particle motion, temperature, and phase (state) of a substance when thermal energy is added or removed.

  • MS-PS1-8. Plan and conduct an investigation to demonstrate that mixtures are combinations of substances.
