Science Worksheets and Study Guides Sixth Grade. Introduction to matter

The resources above correspond to the standards listed below:

New Hampshire Standards

NH.PS1. Physical Science: All living and nonliving things are composed of matter having characteristic properties that distinguish one substance from another (independent of size/amount of substance).
S:PS1:6:1.1. Composition: Students will recognize that all matter is composed of minute particles called atoms; and explain that all substances are composed of atoms, each arranged into different groupings.
S:PS1:6:2.1. Properties: Students will identify elements according to their common properties, such as highly reactive metals, less reactive metals, highly reactive non-metals and almost non-reactive gases.
S:PS1:6:2.2. Properties: Students will identify substances by their physical and chemical properties, such as magnetism, conductivity, density, solubility, boiling and melting points.
S:PS1:6:2.4. Properties: Students will identify energy as a property of many substances.
NH.SPS2. Science Process Skills: Unifying Concepts of Science
S:SPS2:6:2.4. Systems and Energy: Students will apply skills from previous grades and compare a variety of forms of energy, including heat, light, sound, mechanical, electrical, and chemical energy.
S:SPS2:6:2.5. Systems and Energy: Students will apply skills from previous grades and demonstrate how energy can be transformed from one form to another (e.g., from electrical energy to heat, light or mechanical energy).
