6.1.4: Recognize that objects in motion have kinetic energy and objects at rest have potential energy.
6.1.5: Describe with examples that potential energy exists in several different forms (e.g., gravitational potential energy, elastic potential energy and chemical potential energy).
6.1.6: Compare and contrast potential and kinetic energy and how they can be transformed from one form to another.
6.1.7: Explain that energy may be manifested as heat, light, electricity, mechanical motion, and sound and is often associated with chemical reactions.
6.2.1: Describe and model how the position, size and relative motions of the earth, moon and sun cause day and night, solar and lunar eclipses, and phases of the moon.
6.2.2: Recognize that gravity is a force that keeps celestial bodies in regular and predictable motion, holds objects to earthÂ?s surface and is responsible for tides.
6.2.5: Demonstrate that the seasons in both hemispheres are the result of the inclination of the earth on its axis, which causes changes in sunlight intensity and length of day.
6.3.1: Describe specific relationships (i.e., predator and prey, consumer and producer, and parasite and host) between organisms and determine whether these relationships are competitive or mutually beneficial.
6.3.2: Describe how changes caused by organisms in the habitat where they live can be beneficial or detrimental to themselves or to native plants and animals.
6.3.3: Describe how certain biotic and abiotic factorsÂ?such as predators, quantity of light and water, range of temperatures and soil compositionÂ?can limit the number of organisms an ecosystem can support.
6.3.4: Recognize that plants use energy from the sun to make sugar (i.e., glucose) by the process of photosynthesis.
6.4.1: Understand how to apply potential or kinetic energy to power a simple device.
6.4.3: Describe the transfer of energy amongst energy interactions.
