SB2: Students develop an understanding that energy appears in different forms, can be transformed from one form to another, can be transferred or moved from one place or system to another, may be unavailable for use, and is ultimately conserved. The student demonstrates an understanding of how energy can be transformed, transferred, and conserved by:

SB2.1: investigating the effectiveness of different insulating and conducting materials with respect to heat flow and record the results.

 Conduction and Convection

SB3: Students develop an understanding of the interactions between matter and energy, including physical, chemical, and nuclear changes, and the effects of these interactions on physical systems. The student demonstrates an understanding of the interactions between matter and energy and the effects of these interactions on systems by:

SB3.1: explaining that temperature changes cause changes in phases of substances (e.g., ice changing to liquid water and liquid water to water vapor).

 Phases of Water

SB4: Students develop an understanding of motions, forces, their characteristics and relationships, and natural forces and their effects. The student demonstrates an understanding of motions, forces, their characteristics, relationships, and effects by:

SB4.1: simulating that changes in speed or direction of motion are caused by forces.

 Force and Fan Carts

SC3: Students develop an understanding that all organisms are linked to each other and their physical environments through the transfer and transformation of matter and energy. The student demonstrates an understanding that all organisms are linked to each other and their physical environments through the transfer and transformation of matter and energy by:

SC3.1: identifying examples of living and non-living things and the relationship between them (e.g., living things need water, herbivores need plants).

 Pond Ecosystem

SC3.2: Identifying a simple food chain and diagramming how energy flows through it. and describing the effects of removing one link.

 Prairie Ecosystem

SD1: Students develop an understanding of Earth's geochemical cycles. The student demonstrates an understanding of geochemical cycles by:

SD1.1: describing that most smaller rocks come from the breaking and weathering of larger rocks as part of the rock cycle.

 Rock Cycle

SD1.2: recognizing the physical properties of water as they relate to the rock cycle.

 Rock Cycle

SD2: Students develop an understanding of the origins, ongoing processes, and forces that shape the structure, composition, and physical history of the Earth. The student demonstrates an understanding of the forces that shape Earth by:

SD2.1: observing models of how waves, wind, water, and ice shape and reshape the Earth's surface by eroding rock and soil.

 Rock Cycle

SD3: Students develop an understanding of the cyclical changes controlled by energy from the sun and by Earth's position and motion in our solar system. The student demonstrates an understanding of cycles influenced by energy from the sun and by Earth's position and motion in our solar system by:

SD3.1: recognizing changes to length of daylight over time and its relationship to seasons.

 Seasons: Earth, Moon, and Sun
 Summer and Winter

SD3.2: observing that heat flows from one object to another.

 Heat Absorption
 Radiation
