Description

A set of nine puzzles that have students practice critical thinking skills and apply concepts related to chemical reactions, determining if a chemical reaction has occurred, examples of synthetic and natural materials and the life cycle of synthetic materials. Supports the DOK 1 and DOK 2 knowledge needed to meet the challenges of MS-PS-1-2 Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substance before and after the substances interact to determine whether a chemical reaction has occurred and MS-PS-1-3 Gather and make sense of information to describe that synthetic materials come from natural resources and impact society and MS-PS-1-5 Develop and use a model to describe how the total number of atoms does not change in a chemical reaction and thus mass is conserved

9 different Puzzles (12 pages)

  • What did one firefly friend say to another? PUZZLE This review worksheet supports the DOK 1 level concepts and vocabulary related to properties of matter to grapple with the performance expectations for NGSS MS-PS-1-2 Students identify the events as a physical or chemical change to solve the puzzle
  • What is the definition of a caterpillar ? PUZZLE (2 versions) This worksheet supports NGSS MS-PS-1-2. Students are asked to match definitions to vocabulary terms Vocabulary: chemical bond, chemical formula, chemical reaction, endothermic, exothermic, reactant, product, conservation of mass (conservation of matter), chemical change, physical change, atoms
  • What kind of math do birds like? PUZZLE This worksheet supports NGSS MS-PS-1-2. Students decide if the statement describes evidence of a chemical reaction. This was developed to do with my curriculum materials and my students are told that it usually takes a combination of several of these observations to be certain that a chemical change as occurred. Challenging Observations for students (ones that cannot be used as the only evidence) are included with more details in teacher notes
  • What do you call it when you cross a dinosaur with a pig? PUZZLE This worksheet supports NGSS MS-PS-1-2. Students interpret a data table about the properties of two liquids before and after mixing and heating. Using the information in the table they must decide if the statement is true or false. Questions 4-9 have students deciding if the statement could be evidence to support the claim “a chemical reaction has taken place”
  • What kind of doctors are like spiders? PUZZLE This worksheet supports NGSS MS-PS-1-2. Using the provided definition of a natural material and a synthetic material they sort 9 examples into synthetic or natural Examples for sorting: lumber(wood), steel, plastic, silk, glass, natural gas, nylon fabric, cotton fabric, and latex rubber (from trees)
  • What did the cupcake say to the fork? PUZZLE This worksheet supports NGSS MS-PS-1-3. Students are asked to match definitions to vocabulary terms Vocabulary: natural resources, petroleum, elements, natural gas, nonrenewable resource, renewable resource, nylon, silk, physical change, chemical reaction, synthetic material, mineral, sunlight (as an example of a renewable resource)
  • Why did the fisherman put peanut butter into the sea? PUZZLE This worksheet supports NGSS MS-PS-1-3. Students are asked to match definitions to vocabulary terms. This worksheet was developed to support my textbook and lessons on the life cycles of various synthetic objects. The selected vocabulary reflect those sources. Vocabulary: needs, desires, values, life cycle, obtain resources, recycled, reused, discarded, waste and emissions, jobs, manufacturing, distribution.
  • What material makes the best kites? PUZZLE This worksheet supports NGSS MS-PS-1-5. Students are asked to match definitions to vocabulary terms, determine is the examples follow the Law of Conservation, and determine the missing mass using the Law of Conservation. This worksheet was developed to support my textbook that uses “Law of Conservation of Matter”. I know that some teachers prefer to use “Law of Conservation of Mass” So I have included a version using that term as well. Vocabulary: reactant, product, law of conservation of matter (mass).
  • Why did the cookie go to the doctor? PUZZLE This worksheet supports NGSS MS-PS-1-5. Students are asked to determine is the examples follow the Law of Conservation using both models and chemical formulas. . This worksheet was developed to support my textbook that uses “Law of Conservation of Matter”. I know that some teachers prefer to use “Law of Conservation of Mass” So I have included a version using that term as well

Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
NGSSMS-PS1-5
Develop and use a model to describe how the total number of atoms does not change in a chemical reaction and thus mass is conserved. Emphasis is on law of conservation of matter and on physical models or drawings, including digital forms, that represent atoms. Assessment does not include the use of atomic masses, balancing symbolic equations, or intermolecular forces.
NGSSMS-PS1-3
Gather and make sense of information to describe that synthetic materials come from natural resources and impact society. Emphasis is on natural resources that undergo a chemical process to form the synthetic material. Examples of new materials could include new medicine, foods, and alternative fuels. Assessment is limited to qualitative information.
NGSSMS-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. Examples of reactions could include burning sugar or steel wool, fat reacting with sodium hydroxide, and mixing zinc with hydrogen chloride. Assessment is limited to analysis of the following properties: density, melting point, boiling point, solubility, flammability, and odor.
