This comprehensive Middle School Science packet on Heat and Thermal Energy is designed to align with the NGSS Middle School MS-PS1-4 standard. A visually interactive, fully editable 40 slide powerpoint covers the main concepts in the standard "develop a model that predicts and describes changes in particle motion, temperature and state of a pure substance when thermal energy is added or removed". Over 50 pages of student activities, questions and notes complete and compliment this engaging resource.
