What is the force that slows down moving things?
  1. motion
  2. friction
  3. gravity
  4. acceleration
  5. position
Grade 6 Energy and Momentum
During energy transformations, energy is never
  1. released as heat
  2. used to increase an object's potential energy
  3. created or destroyed
  4. completely transformed
Grade 6 Matter
Melting is
  1. when a substance changes from a solid to a liquid (i.e. from ice to water)
  2. when a substance changes from a liquid to a solid (e.g. water to ice)
Grade 6 Forces and Motion
Tulene is walking to school. It took her 2 minutes to walk 100 feet. How fast was she walking?
  1. 100 feet per mile
  2. 50 feet per minute
  3. 50 feet per mile

Grade 6 Matter
Evaporating is when
  1. a substance changes from a liquid to a gas by heating it to its boiling point (i.e water in a kettle turning to water vapor)
  2. a substance changes from a liquid to a gas (or vapor) naturally (ie. when a puddle dries by the water in it evaporating)
  3. a substance changes from a gas (or vapor) into a liquid (ie. water vapor condenses to tiny droplets of water on a cold window)
