RI.PS2. Physical Science: Energy is necessary for change to occur in matter. Energy can be stored, transferred, and transformed, but cannot be destroyed.
PS2 (5-8)-SAE+ POC-6. Given a real-world example, show that within a system, energy transforms from one form to another (i.e., chemical, heat, electrical, gravitational, light, sound, mechanical).
PS2 (7-8)-6. Students demonstrate an understanding of energy by...
6a. Using a real world example to explain the transfer of potential energy to kinetic energy.
6b. Constructing a model to explain the transformation of energy from one form to another. (e.g. an electrical circuit changing electrical energy to light energy in a light bulb).
