NV.P.5.B. Forces and Motion (Physical Science Unifying Concept B): Students understand that forces can change the position and motion of an object.
P.5.B.1. Motion: Students know that, when an unbalanced force is applied to an object, the object either speeds up, slows down, or goes in a different direction. E/S
P.5.B.2. Motion: Students know how the strength of a force and mass of an object influence the amount of change in an object's motion. E/S
P.5.B.5. Forces: Students know Earth's gravity pulls any object toward it without touching it. E/S
NV.P.5.C. Energy (Physical Science Unifying Concept C): Students understand that energy exists in different forms.
P.5.C.1. Waves: Students know light can be described in terms of simple properties (e.g., color, brightness, reflection). I/S
P.5.C.2. Waves: Students know the wave characteristics of sound. E/S
