Systems and Energy (SAE)
Unifying Concepts of Science.
Resources cannot be aligned to this standard, browse sub-standards to find lessons.
Recognize that thinking about things as systems means looking for how every part relates to others.
Discover that collections of pieces (e.g., powders, marbles, sugar cubes or wooden blocks) may have properties that the individual pieces do not.
Estimate or predict the effect that making a change in one part of the system will have on other parts, and on the system as a whole.
Compare a variety of forms of energy, including heat, light, sound, mechanical, electrical, and chemical energy.
Demonstrate how energy can be transformed from one form to another (e.g., from electrical energy to heat, light or mechanical energy).
