LA.PS-M. Physical Science: Students will develop an understanding of the characteristics and interrelationships of matter and energy in the physical world.
GLE-M-25. Grade Level Expectation: Transformations of Energy: Compare forms of energy (e.g., light, heat, sound, electrical, nuclear, mechanical) (PS-M-C1)
GLE-M-30. Grade Level Expectation: Transformations of Energy: Trace energy transformations in a simple system (e.g., flashlight) (PS-M-C2)
GLE-M-4. Grade Level Expectation: Properties and Changes of Properties in Matter: Differentiate between the physical and chemical properties of selected substances (PS-M-A3)
PS-M-A1. Properties and Changes of Properties in Matter: investigating, measuring, and communicating the properties of different substances which are independent of the amount of the substance. (1, 2, 3, 4)
PS-M-A2. Properties and Changes of Properties in Matter: understanding that all matter is made up of particles called atoms and that atoms of different elements are different. (2, 4)
PS-M-C1. Transformations of Energy: identifying and comparing the characteristics of different types of energy. (2, 3, 4)
PS-M-C2. Transformations of Energy: understanding the different kinds of energy transformations and the fact that energy can be neither destroyed nor created. (2, 3, 4)
