Understand the properties of matter and changes that occur when matter interacts in an open and closed container.
  • 8.P.1.1   Classify matter as elements, compounds, or mixtures based on how the atoms are packed together in arrangements.
  • 8.P.1.2   Explain how the physical properties of elements and their reactivity have been used to produce the current model of the Periodic Table of elements
  • 8.P.1.3   Compare physical changes such as size, shape and state to chemical changes that are the result of a chemical reaction to include changes in temperature, color, formation of a gas or precipitate.
  • 8.P.1.4   Explain how the idea of atoms and a balanced chemical equation support the law of conservation of mass.
