PS: Physical Science

PS.1: develop a model to communicate that matter is made of particles too small to be seen

Phase Changes
Phases of Water

PS.2: measure and graph quantities to provide evidence that the total mass of matter is conserved regardless of the type of change that occurs when heating, cooling, or mixing substances

Chemical Changes

PS.3: observe and record qualitative and quantitative evidence to support identification of materials based on their properties

ESS.2: graph and explain the proportion and quantities of water and fresh water in various natural and human-made reservoirs to provide evidence about the distribution of water on Earth

Water Cycle

ESS.3: obtain and combine information from various sources about ways individual communities use science ideas to protect the Earth's resources, environment, and systems and describe examples of how American Indians use scientific knowledge and practices to maintain relationships with the natural world

Water Pollution

ESS.5: graph the daily changes in the length, shape, and direction of shadows; lengths of day and night; and the seasonal appearance of select stars to communicate the patterns of the Earth's movement and describe how astronomical knowledge is used by American Indians
