Rubric: Photo Album: Physical and Chemical changes in Nature


Assignment description: Create a photo album of physical and chemical changes that can be observed in
nature. (Ex.: frozen water, puddle evaporating, changes in leaf color, rusting metal). Include at least 5
photos of physical changes and 5 photos of chemical changes. Include captions for photos that describe
and explain the changes shown in each photo and if it is demonstrating a physical or chemical change.
Support your claim with evidence (how do you know it was a physical or chemical change).
