Next Generation Science Standards
NGSS.MS-PS. PHYSICAL SCIENCE
MS-PS1. Matter and Its Interactions - Students who demonstrate understanding can:
MS-PS1-2. Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred.
MS-PS1-6. Undertake a design project to construct, test, and modify a device that either releases or absorbs thermal energy by chemical processes.
MS-PS1.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas
PS1.B: Chemical Reactions
PS1.B:1. Substances react chemically in characteristic ways. In a chemical process, the atoms that make up the original substances are regrouped into different molecules, and these new substances have different properties from those of the reactants. (MS-PS1-2), (MS-PS1-3), (MS-PS1-5)
PS1.B:3. Some chemical reactions release energy, others store energy. (MS-PS1-6)
