NGSS Structure & Properties Matter Study Guide Test PS1A PS3A Distance Learning


SKU: 3670571 Category: Tags: , ,


The Structure and Properties of Matter test and study guide are aligned to the new NGSS Standards and my students have averaged 86% on this test! The test includes 30 multiple choice questions with pictures/visuals that are included for all styles of learning.


The study guide is easy prep yet rigorous for the students. It’s great for a 50-minute block of time and will really help them on the test! I have lots of Structures and Properties of Matter products in my store that would accompany this worksheet perfectly!

This product Includes the following:

-Study Guide and Answer Key

-Editable Test in Microsoft Publisher (very similar to Microsoft Word)

-Editable Test KEY in Microsoft Publisher (very similar to Microsoft Word)

-PDF version of the Test

-PDF version of the Test KEY

-Google Form version of the Test

-Google version of the Study Guide

Includes the following concepts:

-States of Matter

-Phase Changes




-Characteristics of solids, liquids and gasses

-Energy Transfer

-Thermal Energy









NGSS Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCI’s)

PS1.A: Structure and Properties of Matter

• Substances are made from different types of atoms, which combine with one another in various ways. Atoms form molecules that range in size from two to thousands of atoms. (MS-PS1-1)

• Each pure substance has characteristic physical and chemical properties (for any bulk quantity under given conditions) that can be used to identify it. (MS-PS1-3) (Note: This Disciplinary Core Idea is also addressed by MS-PS1-2.)

• Gases and liquids are made of molecules or inert atoms that are moving about relative to each other. (MS-PS1-4)

• In a liquid, the molecules are constantly in contact with others; in a gas, they are widely spaced except when they happen to collide. In a solid, atoms are closely spaced and may vibrate in position but do not change relative locations.(MS-PS1-4)

• Solids may be formed from molecules, or they may be extended structures with repeating subunits (e.g., crystals). (MS-PS1-1)

• The changes of state that occur with variations in temperature or pressure can be described and predicted using these models of matter. (MS-PS1-4)

PS3.A: Definitions of Energy

• Thermal energy (the motion of atoms or molecules within a substance) and the transfer of that thermal energy from one object to another. In science, heat is used only for this second meaning; it refers to the energy transferred due to the temperature difference between two objects. (secondary to MS-PS1-4)

• The temperature of a system is proportional to the average internal kinetic energy and potential energy per atom or molecule (whichever is the appropriate building block for the system’s material). The details of that relationship depend on the type of atom or molecule and the interactions among the atoms in the material. Temperature is not a direct measure of a system’s total thermal energy. The total thermal energy (sometimes called the total internal energy) of a system depends jointly on the temperature, the total number of atoms in the system, and the state of the material. (secondary to MS-PS1-4)
