|Unit of Instruction||Energy and Motion|
SC.5.P.10.4 – Investigate and explain that electrical energy can be transformed into heat, light, and sound energy, as well as the energy of motion.
SC.5.P.10.3 – Investigate and explain that an electrically-charged object can attract an uncharged object and can either attract or repel another charged object without any contact between the objects.
SC.5.P.11.1- Attract electric charge negative,positive, neutral electricity repel static electricity transformation Investigate and illustrate the fact that the flow of electricity requires a closed circuit (a complete loop).
SC.5.P.11.2 – closed circuit conductors electricity insulator (poor conductor) open circuit simple circuit Identify and classify materials that conduct electricity and materials that do not.
|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
SC.5.P.10.3 & SC.5.P.10.4 – Students will:
• investigate and explain that electrical energy can be transformed into heat, light, sound, and mechanical energy (e.g., lamp, heater, generator, motor, stove, mobile device).
• investigate static electricity (a buildup of electrical charges on an object).
• explain that opposite electrical charges attract (pull towards each other) and like electrical charges repel (push apart) without any contact needed between the objects.
• explain that an electrically-charged object, whether positively or negatively charged, will attract an uncharged (neutral) object.
SC.5.P.11.1 – Students will:
• determine the source of energy for a circuit.
• investigate and illustrate the fact that the flow of electricity requires a closed circuit (a complete loop) when constructing a simple circuit.
• distinguish between open and closed circuits.
• determine which circuit from a visual representation can carry electricity to power an object and which circuit cannot.
SC.5.P.11.2 – Students will:
