Understand nuclear reactions in the sun produce light and heat for the earth.
Properties of Matter K-7 Standard P.PM: Develop an understanding that all matter has observable attributes with physical and chemical properties that are described, measured and compared. Understand that states of matter exist as solid, liquid, or gas, and have physical and chemical properties. Understand all matter is composed of combinations of elements, which are organized by common attributes and characteristics on the periodic table. Understand that substances can be classified as mixtures of compounds according to their physical and chemical properties.
