SC.2.P. PHYSICAL SCIENCE: PROPERTIES OF SOLIDS AND LIQUIDS
2.P.3. The student will demonstrate an understanding of the observable properties of solids and liquids and the special properties of magnets.
2.P.3A. Conceptual Understanding: Solids and liquids are two forms of matter that have distinct observable properties. Some matter can be mixed together and then separated again. Solids and liquids can be changed from one form to another when heat is added or removed.
Students who demonstrate this understanding can:
2.P.3A.1. Analyze and interpret data from observations and measurements to describe the properties used to classify matter as a solid or a liquid.
2.P.3A.3. Conduct structured investigations to test how adding or removing heat can cause changes in solids and liquids.
2.P.3A.4. Construct scientific arguments using evidence from investigations to support claims that some changes in solids or liquids are reversible and some are not when heat is added or removed.
