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

4 ) Design, construct, and test a device that changes energy from one form to
another (e.g., electric circuits converting electrical energy into motion,
light, or sound energy; a passive solar heater converting light energy into heat
[SC2015] PS8 (8) 14 :
14 ) Use models to construct an explanation of how a system of objects may contain varying types and amounts of potential energy (e.g., observing the movement of a roller coaster cart at various inclines, changing the tension in a rubber band, varying the number of batteries connected in a series, observing a balloon with static electrical charge being brought closer to a classmate's hair).
[SC2015] PS8 (8) 16 :
16 ) Apply the law of conservation of energy to develop arguments supporting
the claim that when the kinetic energy of an object changes, energy is
transferred to or from the object (e.g., bowling ball hitting pins, brakes being
applied to a car).
