GRADE 5
Science Correlations
5.E.1.1 Earth Systems, Structures and Processes Compare daily and seasonal changes in weather conditions (including wind speed and diretion, precipitation and temperature) and patterns.

5.P.1.4 Forces and Motion Predict the effect of a given force or a change in mass on the motion of an object.
5.P.3.1 Energy: Conservation and Transfer Explain the effects of the transfer of heat (either by direct contact or at a distance) that occurs between objects at different temperatures (conduction, convection or radiation).
5.P.3.2 Energy: Conservation and Transfer Explain how heating and colling affect some materials and how this relates to their purpose and practical applications.


GRADE 6
Science Correlations
6.P.1.2 Forces and Motion Compare the properties of waves to the wavelike property of energy in earthquakes, light and sound.
6.P.1.3 Forces and Motion Explain the relationship among the rate of vibration, the medium through which vibrations travel, sound and hearing.
6.P.2.2 Matter: Properties and Change Explain the effect of heat on the motion of atoms through a description of what happens to particles during a change in phase.
6.P.2.3 Matter: Properties and Change Compare the physical properties of pure substances that are independent of the amount of matter present including density, boiling point, melting point and solubility to properties that are dependent on the amount of matter present to include volume, mass and weight.
6.P.3.1 Energy: Conservation and Transfer Illustrate the transfer of heat energy from warmer objects to cooler ones using examples of conduction, readiation and convection and the effects that may result.


GRADE 7
Science Correlations
7.P.1.1 Forces and Motion Explain how the motion of an object can be described by its position, direction of motion and speed with respect to some other object.
7.P.1.2 Forces and Motion Explain the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces acting on an object (including friction, gravity and magnets).
7.P.2.1 Energy: Conservation and Transfer Explain how kinetic and potential energy contribute to the mechanical energy of an object.
7.P.2.2 Energy: Conservation and Transfer Explain how energy can be transformed from one form to another (specifically potential energy and kinetic energy) using a model or diagram of a moving object.
7.P.2.3 Energy: Conservation and Transfer Recognize that energy can be transferred from one system to another when two objects push or pull on each other over a distance (work) and electrical circuits require a complete loop through which an electrical current can pass.
7.E.1.3 Earth Systems, Structures and Processes Explain the relationship between the movement of air masses, high and low pressure systems, and frontal boundaries to storms (including thunderstorms, hurricanes and tornadoes) and other weather conditions that may result.
