MS-PS1-2: Chemical Properties and Reactions
Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred. (Patterns)
Clarification Statement: Examples of reactions could include burning sugar or steel wool, fat reacting with sodium hydroxide, and mixing zinc with hydrogen chloride.
Assessment Boundary: Assessment is limited to analysis of the following properties: density, melting point, boiling point, solubility, flammability, and odor.
The following assessments were created by science teachers hoping to better understand the NGSS. In most cases teachers went from standard to assessment in around an hour. These are drafts and should be used accordingly. Feel free to improve these assessments or contribute to the collection. Learn more about assessment design here.
- Physical (density, melting point, boiling point, odor)
- Chemical (flammability, reactivity)
Chemical reaction (e.g. burning sugar or steel wool, zinc and hydrogen chloride, etc.)
