4.C.1.a. Based on data gathered from investigations, identify and describe the changes that occur to the observable properties of materials when different degrees of heat is applied to them, such as melting chocolate pieces, boiling an egg.
4.C.1.b. Observe and describe the changes cooling causes to the observable properties of materials when they are cooled, such as freezing water in a straw, milk in an ice cream maker.
4.C.1.c. Cite examples of similar changes that heating and cooling have on the observable properties of various other materials.
