AK.B1. Concepts of Physical Science (SB1, SB2, SB3, SB4)
 SB3.1. The student demonstrates an understanding of the interactions between matter and energy and the effects of these interactions on systems by recognizing that temperature changes cause changes in phases of substances (e.g., ice changing to liquid, water changing to water vapor, and vice versa).
 SB4.2. The student demonstrates an understanding of motions, forces, their characteristics, relationships, and effects by recognizing that objects can be moved without being touched (e.g., using magnets, falling objects, static electricity).
AK.SB. Concepts of Physical Science: A student should understand and be able to apply the concepts, models, theories, universal principles, and facts that explain the physical world. A student who meets the content standard should:
SB4. Develop an understanding of motions, forces, their characteristics and relationships, and natural forces and their effects.
