Subject AreaComprehensive Science 3
Grade Level8
Week #Q2, W15
Unit of InstructionProperties of Matter
Standard(s) Taught

SC.8.P.9.2 
Differentiate between physical changes and chemical changes

SC. 8.P.9.3 
Investigate and describe how temperature influences chemical
changes.

SC.8.P.9.1 
Explore the Law of Conservation of Mass by demonstrating and
concluding that mass is conserved when substances undergo
physical and chemical changes.

SC.8.P.8.1 
Explore the scientific theory of atoms (also known as atomic
theory) by using models to explain the motion of particles in
solids, liquids, and gases.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students will:
• differentiate physical and chemical changes in matter
• cite examples of physical and chemical changes in matter
• investigate physical and chemical changes in matter

  • explain how temperature influences chemical changes
  • explain why mass is conserved when substances undergo physical and chemical
    changes according to the Law of Conservation of Mass
  • investigate the law of conservation of mass using models, such as:
    chemical equations, experiments, and demonstrations
  • differentiate between solid, liquid, and gas based on their particle motion
    • sequence the states of matter by increasing or decreasing kinetic energy
    • explain how the state of matter of a substance is related to the average kinetic
    energy of its molecules
    • predict what happens to the motion of particles during a phase change
