1-4 Scientific and engineering practices

5 Recurring themes and concepts

6 Matter and energy

7-8 Force, motion, and energy

  • 7 The student knows the nature of forces and the patterns of their interactions. The student is expected to plan and conduct descriptive investigations to explore the patterns of forces such as gravity, friction, or magnetism in contact or at a distance on an object.

  • 8 The student knows that energy is everywhere and can be observed in cycles, patterns, and systems. The student is expected to:

    • A investigate and identify the transfer of energy by objects in motion, waves in water, and sound;

    • B identify conductors and insulators of thermal and electrical energy; and

    • C demonstrate and describe how electrical energy travels in a closed path that can produce light and thermal energy.
