WI.A. Science Connections: Students in Wisconsin will understand that there are unifying themes: systems, order, organization, and interactions; evidence, models, and explanations; constancy, change, and measurement; evolution, equilibrium, and energy; form and function among scientific disciplines.
A.8.8. Use the themes of evolution, equilibrium, and energy to predict future events or changes in the natural world.
WI.D. Physical Science: Students in Wisconsin will demonstrate an understanding of the physical and chemical properties of matter, the forms and properties of energy, and the ways in which matter and energy interact.
D.8.3. Properties and Changes of Properties in Matter: Understand how chemical interactions and behaviors lead to new substances with different properties.
D.8.4. Properties and Changes of Properties in Matter: While conducting investigations, use the science themes to develop explanations of physical and chemical interactions and energy exchanges.
D.8.7. Motions and Forces: While conducting investigations of common physical and chemical interactions occurring in the laboratory and the outside world, use commonly accepted definitions of energy and the idea of energy conservation.
D.8.9. Transfer of Energy: Explain the behaviors of various forms of energy by using the models of energy transmission, both in the laboratory and in real-life situations in the outside world.
