In The Make, students will:

Determine which mystery have received from a Mars mission by carrying out multiple physical properties tests. Students will investigate color, electrical conductivity, magnetism, and solubility. They will use evidence from their investigations to support their findings.
5-PS1-1. Develop a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen. 
5-PS1-2. Measure and graph quantities to provide evidence that regardless of the type of change that occurs when heating, cooling, or mixing substances, the total weight of matter is conserved.  
5-PS1-3. Make observations and measurements to identify materials based on their properties. 
5-PS1-4. Conduct an investigation to determine whether the mixing of two or more substances results in new substances.
