CC.RST.6-8. Reading Standards for Literacy in Science and Technical Subjects
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.
MT.S1. Students, through the inquiry process, demonstrate the ability to design, conduct, evaluate, and communicate results and reasonable conclusions of scientific investigations.
S1.2. Select and use appropriate tools including technology to make measurements (in metric units), gather, process and analyze data from scientific investigations
S1.2.gr6-8.C. Select and use appropriate measurement tool(s) and metric units to gather data
MT.S2. Students, through the inquiry process, demonstrate knowledge of properties, forms, changes and interactions of physical and chemical systems.
S2.3. Describe energy and compare and contrast the energy transformations and the characteristics of light, heat, motion, magnetism, electricity, sound and mechanical waves
S2.3.gr6-8.B. Identify examples of various forms of energy
S2.3.gr6-8.C. Compare and contrast various forms of energy

S2.3.gr6-8.I. Compare and contrast the three types of heat transfer
S2.4. Model and explain the states of matter are dependent upon the quantity of energy present in the system and describe what will change and what will remain unchanged at the particulate level when matter experiences an external force or energy change
S2.4.gr6-8.C. Recognize that temperature measures the average kinetic energy of particles in a substance.
S2.7. Give examples and describe how energy is transferred and conserved (e.g. electric to light and heat , chemical to mechanical [fuel to propulsion])
S2.7.gr6-8.A. Discuss that energy can be transferred (one object to another) or transformed (one form to another)
S2.7.gr6-8.B. Discuss multi-step energy transformations/transfers
S2.7.gr6-8.C. The relationship between energy transfer/transformations and conservation of energy.
