Standard I: Students will understand the nature of changes in matter.
Objective 3: Investigate and measure the effects of increasing or decreasing the amount of energy in a physical or chemical change and relate the kind of energy added, to the motion of the particles.

Enduring Understanding Energy is involved in chemical and physical change. Different types of energy are given off or taken in during chemical or physical change. Molecules move faster when energy is increased, slower when energy is decreased. Chemical and physical reactions may release or require energy.

"I Can" Statements
1. I can provide examples of how energy is involved in a physical and a chemical change.
2. I can describe the different types of energy that may be given off or taken in during a chemical reaction.
3. I can predict what happens to the molecules in a substance when it is heated or cooled.
4. I can demonstrate the energy changes necessary to change liquid water into water vapor.
