Engaging hands-on labs and nonfiction passages are used to teach about chemical reactions, heat transfer and density. The resources included align with NGSS for Middle School Physical Science. The Close Reading passages that are included align with CCSS for 6th grade.
This resource is designed to meet the standards for NGSS
The following NGSS Disciplinary Core Ideas are addressed: Matter and Its Interactions and Energy.
Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred.
MS-PS1-4. 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.
MS-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
MS-PS1-6.Undertake a design project to construct, test, and modify a device that either releases or absorbs thermal energy by chemical processes.
MS-PS3-3. Apply scientific principles to design, construct, and test a device that either minimizes or maximizes thermal energy transfer
MS-PS3-4. Plan an investigation to determine the relationships among the energy transferred, the type of matter,
This Resource Does not address the PS2 standards.
