The resources above correspond to the standards listed below:

Missouri Standards

MO.1. Properties and Principals of Matter and Energy
1.1. Changes in properties and states of matter provide evidence of the atomic theory of matter
1.1.D. Physical changes in the state of matter that result from thermal changes can be explained by the Kinetic Theory of Matter
1.1.D.a. Scope and Sequence - Earth's Resources: Describe the relationship between the change in the volume of water and changes in temperature as it relates to the properties of water (i.e., water expands and becomes less dense when frozen)
MO.5. Processes and Interactions of the Earth's Systems (Geosphere, Atmosphere, and Hydrosphere)
5.1. Earth's systems (Geosphere, atmosphere, and hydrosphere) have common components and unique structures
5.1.B. The hydrosphere is composed of water (a material with unique properties) and other materials
5.1.B.a. Scope and Sequence - Earth's Resources: Identify and describe the properties of water that make it an essential component of the Earth system (e.g., its ability to act as a solvent, its ability to remain as a liquid at most Earth temperatures)
5.3. Human activity is dependent upon and affects Earth's resources and systems
5.3.A. Earth's materials are limited natural resource's affected by human activity
5.3.A.b. Scope and Sequence - Earth's Resources: Describe the affect of human activities (e.g., landfills, use of fertilizers and herbicides, farming, septic systems) on the quality of water
