Standards with the same topic and subject but for other grades
Living and nonliving things are made of parts and can be described in terms of the materials of which they are made and their physical properties.
Identify common objects as solids, liquids, or gases.
Sort and describe objects based on the materials of which they are made and their physical properties.
Matter exists in several different states; the most commonly encountered are solids, liquids, and gases. Liquids take the shape of the part of the container they occupy. Solids retain their shape regardless of the container they occupy.
Calculate the density of objects or substances after determining volume and mass.
The volume of some objects can be determined using liquid (water) displacement.
Analyze data obtained from testing different materials to determine which materials have the properties that are best suited for an intended purpose.
Determine the volume of common objects using water displacement methods.
The density of an object can be determined from its volume and mass.
Pure substances have characteristic intrinsic properties, such as density, solubility, boiling point, and melting point, all of which are independent of the amount of the sample.
