S:PS1:6:1.2 Identify elements as substances that contain only one kind of atom; and explain that elements do not break down by normal laboratory reactions, such as heating, exposure to electric current, and reaction to acid.
S:PS1:6:1.3 Recognize that over one hundred elements exist, and identify the periodic table as a tool for organizing the information about them.
S:PS1:6:2.1 Identify elements according to their common properties, such as highly reactive metals, less reactive metals, highly reactive non-metals and almost non-reactive gases.
S:PS1:6:2.2 Identify substances by their physical and chemical properties, such as magnetism, conductivity, density, solubility, boiling and melting points.
S:PS1:6:2.3 Differentiate between weight and mass.
S:PS1:6:2.4 Identify energy as a property of many substances.
PS2 Energy is necessary for change to occur in matter. Energy can be stored, transferred and transformed, but cannot be destroyed.
S:PS2:6:1.1 Differentiate between a physical change, such as melting, and a chemical change, such as rusting.
PS4 The growth of scientific knowledge in Physical Science has been advanced through the development of technology and is used (alone or in combination with other sciences) to identify, understand and solve local and global issues.
1 Design Technology
S:PS4:6:1.1 Understand that scientific principles are used in the design of technology.
S:PS4:6:2.1 Recognize that manufacturing processes use a variety of tools and machines to separate, form, combine and condition natural and synthetic materials.
3 Social Issues (Local and Global), Energy, Power, and Transportation, Manufacturing
S:PS4:6:3.1 Explain how a battery changes chemical energy into electrical energy.
S:PS4:6:3.2 Demonstrate how to produce a magnetic force with an electric current, such as an electromagnet, and how to produce an electric current with a magnet, such as a generator.
S:PS4:6:3.3 Provide an example to show that manufacturing processes involve changing natural materials into finished products through a series of processes that involve physical and/or chemical changes.
4 Career Technical Education Connections
S:PS4:6:4.1 Understand that some form of science is used in most jobs/careers and that some jobs/careers specifically require knowledge of physical science.
