New Hampshire Standards
NH.ESS4. Earth Space Science: The growth of scientific knowledge in Earth Space Science has been advanced through the development of technology and is used (alone or in combination with other sciences) to identify, understand and solve local and global issues.
S:ESS4:8:3.1. Local and Global Environmental Issues: Students will provide examples of how creative thinking and economic need has shaped the way people use natural materials, such as the use of metal ores, petroleum, and fresh water.
NH.PS2. Physical Science: Energy is necessary for change to occur in matter. Energy can be stored, transferred and transformed, but cannot be destroyed.
S:PS2:8:1.5. Change: Given a real-world example, students will show that within a system, energy transforms from one form to another (i.e., chemical, heat, electrical, gravitational, light, sound, mechanical).
S:PS2:8:3.1. Energy: Students will differentiate between kinetic energy, which is the energy of motion and potential energy, which depends on relative position.
