AK.A1. Science as Inquiry and Process (SA1, SA2, SA3)
 SA1.1. The student demonstrates an understanding of the processes of science by asking questions, predicting, observing, describing, measuring, classifying, making generalizations, inferring and communicating.
AK.B1. Concepts of Physical Science (SB1, SB2, SB3, SB4)
 SB2.1. The student demonstrates an understanding of how energy can be transformed, transferred, and conserved by explaining that energy (i.e., heat, light, chemical, electrical, mechanical) can change form.
AK.RST.6-8. Reading Standards for Literacy in Science and Technical Subjects 6-12
Craft and Structure
RST.6-8.4. Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 6-8 texts and topics.
AK.SA. Science as Inquiry and Process: A student should understand and be able to apply the processes and applications of scientific inquiry. A student who meets the content standard should:
SA1. Develop an understanding of the processes of science used to investigate problems, design and conduct repeatable scientific investigations, and defend scientific arguments.
AK.SB. Concepts of Physical Science: A student should understand and be able to apply the concepts, models, theories, universal principles, and facts that explain the physical world. A student who meets the content standard should:
SB2. Develop an understanding that energy appears in different forms, can be transformed from one form to another, can be transferred or moved from one place or system to another, may be unavailable for use, and is ultimately conserved.
AK.SE. Science and Technology: A student should understand the relationships among science, technology, and society. A student who meets the content standard should:
SE2. Develop an understanding that solving problems involves different ways of thinking, perspectives, and curiosity that lead to the exploration of multiple paths that are analyzed using scientific, technological, and social merits.
