What is the force that slows down moving things?
  1. motion
  2. friction
  3. gravity
  4. acceleration
  5. position
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
  4. 100 miles per hour
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)
Grade 6 Matter
Mass is the
  1. amount of matter in an object.
  2. synonym for weight.
  3. measurement of electrons in matter.
Grade 6 Simple Machines

Grade 6 Energy and Momentum
What is energy of motion?
  1. potential energy
  2. kinetic energy
  3. sound energy
  4. electrical energy
  5. mechanical energy
Grade 6 Forces and Motion
Newton's First Law of Motion states:
  1. an object in motion stays in motion unless a force acts on it
  2. an object's acceleration (change in speed) depends on the mass of the object and the amount of force applied on it
  3. an object at rest stays at rest unless a force acts on it
  4. every action has an equal and opposite reaction
  5. A and C
Grade 6 Forces and Motion
Newton's Third Law of Motion states:
  1. an object in motion stays in motion unless a force acts on it
  2. an object's acceleration (change in speed) depends on the mass of the object and the amount of force applied on it
  3. an object at rest stays at rest unless a force acts on it
  4. every action has an equal and opposite reaction
  5. A and C
Grade 6 Heat Transfer
Thermal insulator is a material that
  1. moves heat easily through the material.
  2. reduces or prevents the transfer of heat.
  3. is flammable and can start fires.
  4. does not exist.
