5th Grade (SCI) Science Standards [PS1] Matter and Its Interaction
SCI-05.PS1.02 Measure and graph metric quantities to provide evidence that regardless of the type of change that occurs when heating, cooling, or mixing substances, the total mass of matter is conserved.
Clarification Statement: Examples of reactions or changes could include dissolving, and mixing. Examples of physical changes could
include ice melting into water. Distinguish between mass and weight. Weight is a measure of gravitational
force on an object. Weight of an object can change depending upon gravitational force. Ex. Earth vs. the
moon. Mass is the amount of matter in an object. Disciplinary Core Ideas The mass of matter is conserved when it
changes form, even in transitions in which it
seems to vanish. No matter what reaction or
change in properties occurs, the total mass of
the substances does not change
Student Learning Targets:
I can graph quantities to provide evidence that mass stays the same.
Skills (Performance) Targets
