mass vs. weight
properties of matter
These are the standards tested and reported under “Category 1: Matter and Energy” on the Texas 5th Grade Science STAAR Test.
5.5 A Classify matter based on physical properties, including mass, magnetism, physical state (solid, liquid, and gas), relative density (sinking and floating), solubility in water, the ability to conduct or insulate thermal energy or electric energy
5.5 B Identify the boiling and freezing/melting points of water on the Celsius scale
5.5 C Demonstrate that some mixtures maintain physical properties of their ingredients such as iron filings and sand
5.5 D Identify changes that can occur in the physical properties of the ingredients of solutions such as dissolving salt in water or adding lemon juice to water
3.5 C Predict, observe, and record changes in the state of matter caused by heating or cooling
The review sheets are not intended to the sole source of information for your students when learning about Matter and Energy.
The review sheet is simply meant to be a tool to help your students recall key concepts taught and investigated in class.
The best test preparation is always quality instruction with the end in mind.
