Physical and Chemical Changes in the State of Water

Group 5

Georgia Performance Standards

5th Grade Science

  • S5P2. Students will explain the difference between a physical change and a chemical change.

  • a. Investigate physical changes by separating mixtures and manipulating (cutting, tearing, folding) paper to demonstrate examples of physical change.

  • b. Recognize that the changes in state of water (water vapor/steam, liquid, ice) are due to temperature differences and are examples of physical change.

  • c. Investigate the properties of a substance before, during, and after a chemical reaction to find evidence of change.
