PHYSICAL SCIENCE (PS)
Topic: Motion and Materials - This topic focuses on the changes in properties that occur in objects and materials. Changes of position of an object are a result of pushing or pulling.
1.PS.1: Properties of objects and materials can change.
Objects and materials change when exposed to various conditions, such as heating or cooling. Changes in temperature are a result of changes in energy. Not all materials change in the same way.
1.PS.2: Objects can be moved in a variety of ways, such as straight, zigzag, circular and back and forth.
The position of an object can be described by locating it relative to another object or to the object’s surroundings. An object is in motion when its position is changing.
The motion of an object can be affected by pushing or pulling. A push or pull is a force that can make an object move faster, slower or go in a different direction. Changes in motion are a result of changes in energy.
