LA.PS-E. Physical Science: Students will develop an understanding of the characteristics and interrelationships of matter and energy in the physical world.
GLE-E-23. Grade Level Expectation: Position and Motion of Objects: Demonstrate how force is a push or a pull by using students' bodies, toy cars, or balls (PS-E-B2)
GLE-E-24. Grade Level Expectation: Position and Motion of Objects: Explain how the amount and direction of force exerted on an object (e.g., push, pull, friction, gravity) determine how much the object will move (PS-E-B2)
GLE-E-26. Grade Level Expectation: Position and Motion of Objects: Explain the effect of varying amounts of force on the motion of an object (PS-E-B4)
GLE-E-32. Grade Level Expectation: Forms of Energy: Give examples of how energy can be used to move or lift objects (PS-E-C6)
GLE-E-33. Grade Level Expectation: Forms of Energy: Identify simple machines and the tasks they make possible (PS-E-C6)
PS-E-B2. Position and Motion of Objects: exploring and recognizing that the position and motion of objects can be changed by pushing or pulling (force) over time. (1, 2, 3)
PS-E-C2. Forms of Energy: investigating and describing how light travels and what happens when light strikes an object (reflection, refraction, and absorption). (2)
PS-E-C3. Forms of Energy: investigating and describing different ways heat can be produced and moved from one object to another by conduction. (2)
PS-E-C5. Forms of Energy: investigating and communicating that magnetism and gravity can exert forces on objects without touching the objects. (2)
LA.SE-E. Science and the Environment: In learning environmental science, students will develop an appreciation of the natural environment, learn the importance of environmental quality, and acquire a sense of stewardship. As consumers and citizens, they will be able to recognize how our personal, professional, and political actions affect the natural world.
GLE-E-58. Grade Level Expectation: Describe how humans have had negative and positive effects on organisms and their environments (SE-E-A3) (SE-E-A5)
GLE-E-60. Grade Level Expectation: Explain how renewable and nonrenewable resources can be replenished or depleted (SE-E-A4)
SE-E-A4. Understanding that the original sources of all material goods are natural resources and that the conserving and recycling of natural resources is a form of stewardship. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
