Unit of InstructionHeat and Temperature
Standard(s) Taught

SC.7.P.11.1 Recognize that adding heat to or removing heat from a system may result in a temperature change and possibly a change of state.

SC.7.N.1.1 Define a problem from the seventh grade curriculum, use appropriate reference materials to support scientific understanding, plan and carry out scientific investigation of various types, such as systematic observations or experiments, identify variables, collect and organize data, interpret data in charts, tables, and graphics, analyze information, make predictions, and defend conclusions.

SC.7.N.1.2 Differentiate replication (by others) from repetition (multiple trials).

SC.7.P.11.4 Observe and describe that heat flows in predictable ways, moving from warmer objects to cooler ones until they reach the same temperature.

SC.7.N.1.4 Identify test variables (independent variables) and outcome.

Advanced
SC.912.P.10.5 Relate temperature to the average molecular kinetic energy.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students will:
• predict and investigate the possible change in temperature (oC) when heat is added or removed from a system.
• predict and investigate the possible change in state of matter when heat is added or removed from a system.
• create an experiment to test the relationship between temperature and the state of matter.
NOS Focus: Differentiate between replication (by others) and repetition (multiple trials).

Students will:
• describe heat as the flow of thermal energy from warmer objects to cooler ones, until both objects reach the same temperature.
• predict and investigate the direction thermal energy flows on a diagram.
• describe the concept of specific heat (no calculations) as related to conductors and insulators.
NOS Focus: Identifying and limiting variables, collecting data, and drawing conclusions.

Advanced:
1. describe temperature as the average molecular kinetic energy.
2. recognize that the internal energy of an object includes the energy of random motion of the object’s atoms and molecules, often referred to as thermal energy.
