RI.PS1. Physical Science: All living and nonliving things are composed of matter having characteristic properties that distinguish one substance from another (independent of size or amount of substance).
PS1 (5-8) INQ+POC-2. Given data about characteristic properties of matter (e.g., melting and boiling points, density, solubility) identify, compare, or classify different substances.
PS1 (5-6)-2. Students demonstrate an understanding of characteristic properties of matter by...
2a. Recognizing that different substances have properties, which allow them to be identified regardless of the size of the sample.
RI.PS2. Physical Science: Energy is necessary for change to occur in matter. Energy can be stored, transferred, and transformed, but cannot be destroyed.
PS2 (5-8)-SAE+ POC-6. Given a real-world example, show that within a system, energy transforms from one form to another (i.e., chemical, heat, electrical, gravitational, light, sound, mechanical).
PS2 (5-6)-6. Students demonstrate an understanding of energy by...
6a. Differentiating among the properties of various forms of energy.
