Mississippi College & Career Readiness Standards
MS.P.5. GRADE FIVE: Physical Science
Organization of Matter and Chemical Interactions
P.5.5A. Students will demonstrate an understanding of the physical properties of matter.
P.5.5A.1. Obtain and evaluate scientific information to describe basic physical properties of atoms and molecules.
P.5.5A.2. Collect, analyze, and interpret data from measurements of the physical properties of solids, liquids, and gases (e.g., volume, shape, movement, and spacing of particles).
P.5.5A.3. Analyze matter through observations and measurements to classify materials (e.g., powders, metals, minerals, or liquids) based on their properties (e.g., color, hardness, reflectivity, electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, response to magnetic forces, solubility, or density).
P.5.5C. Students will demonstrate an understanding of the difference between physical and chemical changes.
P.5.5C.2. Analyze and communicate the results of physical changes to a substance that results in a reversible change (e.g., changes in states of matter with the addition or removal of energy, changes in size or shape, or combining/separating mixtures or solutions).
