2-PS1-4: Construct an argument with evidence that some changes caused by heating or cooling can be reversed and some cannot. (Examples of reversible changes could include materials such as water and butter at different temperatures. Examples of irreversible changes could include cooking an egg-it cannot turn back into a raw egg via cooling, freezing a plant leaf-it will die when it thaws, and heating paper-it can catch fire, baking cookie dough-cooling it does not return it to its uncooked state)
