Plan and carry out investigations that explain transference of energy from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents.
Use evidence to explain the relationship of the speed of an object to the energy of that object.
Design, construct, and test a device that changes energy from one form to another (e.g., electric circuits converting electrical energy into motion, light, or sound energy; a passive solar heater converting light energy into heat energy).
Investigate to determine changes in energy resulting from increases or decreases in speed that occur when objects collide.
Compile information to describe how the use of energy derived from natural renewable and nonrenewable resources affects the environment (e.g., constructing dams to harness energy from water, a renewable resource, while causing a loss of animal habitats; burning of fossil fuels, a nonrenewable resource, while causing an increase in air pollution; installing solar panels to harness energy from the sun, a renewable resource, while requiring specialized materials that necessitate mining).
