1.3 - Matter

The student will investigate and understand how different common materials interact with water. Key concepts include

a)  some liquids will separate when mixed with water, but others will not;

  • describe and apply the term dissolve  Bloom's Level: Understand/Apply
  • predict and describe how various materials (vinegar, milk, soda, oil ) act when mixed with water Bloom's Level: Understand/Apply
  • classify liquids into those that will dissolve in water and those that will not  Bloom's Level: Apply
  • use tables and/or charts to record and display the data  Bloom's Level: Understand / Apply

b)  some solids will dissolve in water, but others will not; and

  • describe and apply the term dissolve Bloom's Level: Understand / Apply
  • predict and describe how various materials (baking soda, powdered drink mix, sugar, salt, sand, soil, rocks )act when mixed with water   Bloom's Level: Understand / Apply
  • classify solids into those that will dissolve in water and those that will not   Bloom's Level:  Apply
  • use tables and/or charts to record and display the data Bloom's Level: Understand / Apply

c)  some substances will dissolve more readily in hot water than in cold water.

  • infer that some substances will dissolve more easily in hot water than in cold water Bloom's Level: Understand / Apply
  • conduct investigations using water at different temperatures Bloom's Level: Apply

BIG IDEAS

Some solids and liquids change when they interact with water.

UNDERSTANDING THE STANDARD

  • Different types of materials act differently when mixed with water.
  • Some liquids will mix with water, while others will not.
  • Some solids will dissolve in water, while others will not.
  • The temperature of the water affects how easily a substance will dissolve in it.

ESSENTIALS

Essential Questions:

 How can water temperature affect certain kinds of matter?

 How do liquids change when they interact with water?

 How do solids change when they interact with water?


In order to meet this standard, it is expected that students will

  • describe and apply the term dissolve.
  • predict and describe how various materials (vinegar, milk, baking soda, powdered drink mix, sugar, salt, sand, oil, soil, rocks) act when mixed with water.
  • classify liquids and solids into those that will dissolve in water and those that will not. Use tables and/or charts to record and display the information.
  • infer that some substances will dissolve more easily in hot water than in cold water by conducting investigations using water at different temperatures.
