Content Standards

S8P2. Students will be familiar with the forms and transformations of energy.

  • Explain energy transformation in terms of the law of Conservation of Energy.
  • Explain the relationship between potential and kinetic energy.
  • Compare and contrast the different forms of mechanical, heat, electrical and magnetic energy and their characteristics.

S8P5. Students will recognize characteristics of gravity, electricity, and magnetism as major kinds of forces acting in nature.

  • Investigate and explain that electric currents and magnets can exert force on each other.

S8CS1. Students will explore the importance of curiosity, honesty, openness, and skepticism in science and will exhibit these traits in their own efforts to understand how the world works.

  • Understand the importance of—and keep—honest, clear, and accurate records in science.
  • Understand that hypotheses can be valuable even if they turn out not to be completely accurate.

S8CS2. Students will use standard safety practices for all classroom laboratory and field investigations.

  • Follow correct procedures for use of scientific apparatus.
  • Demonstrate appropriate techniques in all laboratory situations.
  • Follow correct protocol for identifying and reporting safety problems and violations.

S8CS5. Students will use the ideas of system, model, change, and scale in exploring scientific and technological matters.

  • Observe and explain how parts can be related to other parts in a system such as the role of simple machines in complex machines.
  • Understand that different models (such as physical replicas, pictures, and analogies) can be used to represent the same thing.

S8CS7. Students will question scientific claims and arguments effectively.

  • Identify the flaws of reasoning in arguments that are based on poorly designed research (e.g., facts intermingled with opinions, conclusions based on insufficient evidence).
  • Recognize that there may be more than one way to interpret a given set of findings.

S8CS8. Students will be familiar with the characteristics of scientific knowledge and how it is achieved.

Students will apply the following to scientific concepts:

  • When similar investigations give different results, the scientific challenge is to judge whether the differences are trivial or significant, which often requires further study. Even with similar results, scientists may wait until an investigation has been repeated many times before accepting the results as meaningful.

S8CS9. Students will understand the features of the process of scientific inquiry.

Students will apply the following to inquiry learning practices:

  • Investigations are conducted for different reasons, which include exploring new phenomena, confirming previous results, testing how well a theory predicts, and comparing different theories.

Enduring Understanding:

Magnetic forces arise from the movement of electrical charge.

Essential Question:

How is energy transferred to my home?


Teacher Reflection

What were the "Big Concepts" at each station?

How will students make sense of these concepts?

Discuss real-world examples that may reinforce students' understanding.

Homework, accommodations for students with disabilities, gifted students, ELL

What other standards and elements might one introduce at this time to unify the concepts?

What are some common student misconceptions and how can these activities facilitate the student’s proper conception and understanding?
