SC.4.1 Physical Science

  • SC.4.1.1 The faster an object moves the more energy it has.

    • SC.4.1.1.a Use evidence to construct an explanation relating the speed of an object to the energy of that object.

  • SC.4.1.2 Energy can be moved from place to place.

  • SC.4.1.3 When objects collide contact forces transfer so as to change objects' motion.

    • SC.4.1.3.a Ask questions and predict outcomes about the changes in energy that occur when objects collide.

  • SC.4.1.4 Energy can be produced, used or released by converting stored energy.

    • SC.4.1.4.a Apply scientific ideas to design, test and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another.

  • SC.4.1.5 Waves are regular patterns of motion.

  • SC.4.1.6 An object can be seen when light reflected from its surface enters the eyes.

    • SC.4.1.6.a Develop a model to describe that light reflecting from objects and entering the eye allows objects to be seen.
