MS-PS3-4 Conduct an investigation to demonstrate the way that heat (thermal energy) moves among objects through radiation, conduction, or convection.
MS-LS2 Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics
MS-LS2-1 Evaluate and communicate the impact of environmental variables on population size.
MS-LS2-2 Determine the impact of competitive, symbiotic, and predatory interactions in an ecosystem.
MS-LS2-3 Draw conclusions about the transfer of energy through a food web and energy pyramid in an ecosystem.
MS-LS2-4 Using evidence from climate data, draw conclusions about the patterns of abiotic and biotic factors in different biomes, specifically the tundra, taiga, deciduous forest, desert, grasslands, rainforest, marine, and freshwater ecosystems.
MS-LS2-5 Analyze existing evidence about the effect of a specific invasive species on native populations in Tennessee and design a solution to mitigate its impact.
MS-LS2-6 Research the ways in which an ecosystem has changed over time in response to changes in physical conditions, population balances, human interactions, and natural catastrophes.
