|Unit of Instruction||Properties of Matter - Chemical Changes|
SC.8.P.9.2 Differentiate between physical changes and chemical changes.
SC.8.N.1.6 Understand that scientific investigations involve the collection of relevant empirical evidence, the use of logical reasoning, and the application of imagination in devising hypotheses, predictions, explanations and models to make sense of the collected evidence
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.
|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
• differentiate physical and chemical changes in matter
o NOS Focus – Inferences and Observations
• 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
o differentiate between a law and a theory o NOS Focus- Theory vs. Law
