A project for students to demonstrate the difference between a chemical change and a physical change. Includes an assignment sheet, example, and rubric. Works great as an assessment, a class project, station work, or an at-home assignment.

- this product is included in both.
In my opinion, this product could be used to support the teaching of Next Generation Science Standard MS-PS1-2** when used in conjunction with other materials. To be clear - this is not a comprehensive guide to the standard but I believe it could be used to start students on the path to mastering it. The standard states:
"Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred."
