2 ) Plan and carry out investigations that explain transference of energy from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents.

a. Provide evidence that heat can be produced in many ways (e.g., rubbing hands together, burning leaves) and can move from one object to another by conduction.

b. Demonstrate that different objects can absorb, reflect, and/or conduct energy.

c. Demonstrate that electric circuits require a complete loop through which an electric current can pass.

10 ) Construct and interpret models (e.g., diagrams, flow charts) to explain that energy in animals' food is used for body repair, growth, motion, and maintenance of body warmth and was once energy from the sun.

Subject: Science (4 - 5)
Title: Sensing Energy

In this lesson, students will perform simple experiments that will help them explore the unseen energy produced by the sun. During the course of this lesson, students will be exposed to these concepts: the sun produces both visible and invisible forms of energy, the light we see is visible energy produced from the sun reflected off surfaces, ultraviolet energy emitted from the sun can produce skin burns and cancer, and there are ways of blocking ultraviolet radiation.
