This activity will allow students the ability to apply their skills to deal with situations that involves chemical and physical changes and the utilization of the requisite vocabulary as far as the Georgia Standards for 5th science are concerned.
S5P2 Students will explain the difference between a physical change and a chemical change.
a. Investigate physical changes by separating mixtures and manipulating (cutting, tearing, folding) paper to demonstrate examples of physical change.
b. Recognize that the changes in state of water (water vapor/steam, liquid, ice) are due to temperature differences and are examples of physical change.
c. Investigate the properties of a substance before, during, and after a chemical reaction to find evidence of change.
