VT.PS. Physical Science
Enduring Knowledge: All living and non-living things are composed of matter having characteristic properties that distinguish one substance from another.
S5-6:9. Students demonstrate their understanding of the Properties of Matter by:
S5-6:9.1. Investigating and developing conclusions that explain how the relative volume or mass of an object affects the density of the object. (DOK 3)
Enduring Knowledge: Energy is necessary for change to occur. It is the ability of matter to bring about change. There are many forms of energy. The total energy in the universe is constant. Energy can be transformed and transferred, but not destroyed (Conservation of Energy). Energy transfers and transformations exhibit the characteristics of systems with inputs, processes and outputs, as well as connections to other systems.
S5-6:23. Students demonstrate their understanding of Heat Energy by:
S5-6:23.1. Identifying real world applications where heat energy is transferred , using evidence to explain the direction that the heat energy flows. (DOK 3)
