Science Worksheets and Study Guides Seventh Grade. Energy: Forms and Changes

The resources above correspond to the standards listed below:

Kentucky Standards

KY.AE. Academic Expectation
AE.1. Students are able to use basic communication and mathematics skills for purposes and situations they will encounter throughout their lives.
1.5-1.9. Students use mathematical ideas and procedures to communicate, reason, and solve problems.
AE.2. Students shall develop their abilities to apply core concepts and principles from mathematics, the sciences, the arts, the humanities, social studies, practical living studies, and vocational studies to what they will encounter throughout their lives.
2.1. Science: Students understand scientific ways of thinking and working and use those methods to solve real-life problems.
KY.CC. Core Content for Assessment v.4.1
SC-07-4.6. Energy Transformations: Energy transformations are inherent in almost every system in the universe - from tangible examples at the elementary level, such as heat production in simple earth and physical systems to more abstract ideas beginning at middle school, such as those transformations involved in the growth, dying and decay of living systems. The use of models to illustrate the often invisible and abstract notions of energy transfer will aid in conceptualization, especially as students move from the macroscopic level of observation and evidence (primarily elementary school) to the microscopic interactions at the atomic level (middle and high school levels).
SC-07-4.6.1. Unifying Concepts: Students will understand that Earth systems have sources of energy that are internal and external to the Earth. The Sun is the major external source of energy.
SC-07-4.6.2. Unifying Concepts: Students will describe the transfer and/or transformations of energy that occur in examples that involve several different forms of energy (e.g., heat, electrical, light, motion of objects and chemical); explain, qualitatively or quantitatively, that heat lost by hot object equals the heat gained by cold object.
KY.CC.6-8.WHST. Writing Standards for Literacy in Science and Technical Subjects
Text Types and Purposes
6-8.WHST.2. Write informative/explanatory texts, including the narration of historical events, scientific procedures/ experiments, or technical processes.
6-8.WHST.2.d. Use precise language and domain-specific vocabulary to inform about or explain the topic.
KY.PS. Program of Studies 2006
SC-7-ET. Big Idea: Energy Transformations (Unifying Concepts) - Energy transformations are inherent in almost every system in the universe - from tangible examples at the elementary level, such as heat production in simple Earth and physical systems to more abstract ideas beginning at middle school, such as those transformations involved in the growth, dying and decay of living systems. The use of models to illustrate the often invisible and abstract notions of energy transfer will aid in conceptualization, especially as students move from the macroscopic level of observation and evidence (primarily elementary school) to the microscopic interactions at the atomic level (middle and high school levels). (Academic Expectations 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4)
SC-7-ET-S-3. Program of Studies: Skills and Concepts - Students will explain where energy comes from (and goes next) in a variety of real-world examples (e.g. burning, respiration, residential lighting, dry cell batteries) involving different forms of energy (e.g. heat, light, kinetic, chemical)
SC-7-ET-S-7. Program of Studies: Skills and Concepts - Students will experiment with heat flow inside closed and open systems to explore the concept of thermal equilibrium
SC-7-ET-U-3. Program of Studies: Understandings - Students will understand that all energy must have a source and may change forms or be transferred in a wide variety of ways, including via waves.
