Physical Change with Matter and Heat


Students will identify different states of matter focusing on liquid changing to a solid and make observations of energy/heat loss during a physical change in matter.


Summary


SEEd 5.2.4 Use mathematics and computational thinking to provide evidence that regardless of the type of change that occurs when heating, cooling, or combining substances, the total weight of matter is conserved. Examples could include melting an ice cube, dissolving salt in water, and combining baking soda and vinegar in a closed bag. (PS1.A, PS1.B)


Lesson Performance Expectations


Students will identify different states of matter, the conservation of mass with phase change and make observations of energy/heat loss during a physical change in matter.
