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 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
States of matter are                                                                                                                                                                                                      .
  1. the temperature at which a liquid boils and becomes a gas
  2. the law that states that for a fixed amount of gas at a constant temperature, the volume of the gas increases as its pressure decreases and the volume of the gas decreases as its pressure increases
  3. the term used to describe a physical or chemical change in which energy is given of
  4. the physical forms in which a substance can exist; includes solid, liquid, gas, and plasma

  4. acceleration of an object.
Grade 6 Matter
Sublimation is                                                                .
  1. a substance used in a chemical reaction.
  2. the process by which particles leave a liquid and become a gas.
  3. the process by which a solid changes directly into a gas.
  4. a substance made by a chemical reaction.
Grade 6 Waves and Sound
How does light travel?
  1. in a circular motion
  2. in straight lines called rays
  3. in a diagonal line changing direction
  4. in a large mass of particles that swirl around
