Matter: Properties and Changes 5.P.2 Understand the interactions of matter and energy and the changes that occur.
5.P.2.1 Explain how the sun’s energy impacts the processes of the water cycle (including, evaporation, transpiration, condensation, precipitation and runoff). 5.P.2.2 Compare the weight of an object to the sum of the weight of its parts before and after an interaction. 5.P.2.3 Summarize properties of original materials, and the new material(s) formed, to demonstrate that a change has occurred.
5.P.3 Explain how the properties of some materials change as a result of heating and cooling.
P.3.1 Explain the effects of transfer of heat (either by direct contact or at a distance) that occurs between objects at different temperatures. P.3.2 Explain how heating and cooling affect some materials and how this relates to their purpose and practical applications.
