Science Lesson Plans for the Week of March April 23 to April 27
MS-PS3-1 Construct and analyze graphical displays of data to describe the relationships of kinetic energy to the mass of an object and to the speed of an object. (SEP: 4; DCI: PS3.A; CCC: Scale/Prop.)
MS-PS3-2 Develop a model to describe that when the arrangement of objects interacting at a distance changes, different amounts of potential energy are stored in the system. (SEP: 2; DCI: PS3.A, PS3.C ; CCC: Systems)
MS-PS3-4 Plan an investigation to determine the relationships among the energy transferred, the type of matter, the mass, and the change in the average kinetic energy of the particles as measured by the temperature of the sample. (SEP: 3; DCI: PS3.A, PS3.B; CCC: Scale/Prop.)
MS-PS3-5 Engage in argument from evidence to support the claim that when the kinetic energy of an object changes, energy is transferred to or from the object. (SEP: 7; DCI: PS3.B; CCC: Energy/Matter)
- Relate energy to work.
- Describe kinetic energy.
- Identify two types of potential energy.
- Give examples of energy conversions between potential and kinetic energy.
