Unit of InstructionMatter, Changes in Matter, Mixtures and Solutions
Standard(s) Taught

SC.5.P.8.1 – Compare and contrast the basic properties of solids, liquids, and gases, such as mass, volume, color, texture, and temperature. 

SC.5.P.9.1 – Investigate and describe that many physical and chemical changes are affected by temperature.  

SC.5.P.8.3 – Demonstrate and explain that mixtures of solids can be separated based on observable properties of their parts such as particle size, shape, color, and magnetic attraction.

SC.5.P.8.2 – Investigate and identify materials that will dissolve in water and those that will not and identify the conditions that will speed up or slow down the dissolving process. 

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

SC.5.P.8.1- Students will:

• review by describing and classifying a material as a solid, liquid, or gas.

• review how to use the water displacement method to find the volume of regular- and irregular-shaped solids.

• justify the reasoning for the classification of materials based on shape, mass (weight) and volume (water displacement).

• recognize that physical properties include both observable and measurable properties.

• compare and contrast the observable properties of solids, liquids, and gases (e.g., shape, color, hardness, texture, taste, attraction to magnets).

• compare and contrast the measurable properties of solids, liquids, and gases (e.g., mass, volume, temperature).

SC.5.P.9.1 Students will:

• review the causes for the weathering of rocks (ice wedging, precipitation and flowing water, abrasion of particles carried by the wind, plant roots, temperature change)

• review the causes for the erosion of rocks (gravity, ice/glaciers, flowing water, wind).

• review by describing visible signs of a chemical change that may occur (odor, color change, temperature change, gas production/fizzing sound).

• review by comparing the similarities and differences of physical and chemical changes.

• investigate and describe that many physical changes to solids and liquids are affected by temperature change (e.g., melting, freezing, evaporating, condensing, dissolving).

• investigate and describe how temperature can cause a chemical change that results in the formation of a new material with different characteristics (e.g., baking, grilling, frying, toasting, decaying plant and animal matter, rusting, releasing of carbon dioxide).

SC.5.P.8.3 & SC.5.P.8.2 Students will:

• demonstrate and explain how mixtures of solids can be separated based on observable properties of their parts (e.g., particle size, shape, color, magnetic attraction) through sorting, screening-sieve, filtration, magnets, and evaporation.

• investigate common household materials (liquids or solids) that will dissolve in water (e.g., salt, sugar, drink mixes) and those that will not (e.g., rice, beans, cooking oil, lard).

• recognize that not all parts of a mixture will dissolve.

• investigate the conditions (temperature, stirring/shaking, surface area) that will speed up or slow down the dissolving process and/or chemical reactions (e.g., heat speeds up reactions and the dissolving process).
