Description

Energy Transfer: Making an Argument from Evidence. In this resource, students will gather evidence through two hands-on labs and an informational text passage on energy transfer. They will use the evidence collected to support claims and make an argument from evidence. 

This resource includes:

  • Suggested schedule
  • Two labs
  • Lab pages
  • Reading passage
  • Reading Response
  • Constructing and Argument Page
  • Answer keys

Students will love these engaging labs! The materials needed for the labs are easy-to-find household materials.  You will need 10 pennies and a smooth surface for each group of students.  You will need two disposable coffee cups with lids, a 6-inch copper wire, water, and two thermometers

This resource is aligned with the following standards:

NGSS PS MS PS3-5 Construct, use, and present oral and written arguments supported by empirical evidence and scientific reasoning to support or refute an explanation or a model for a phenomenon.

 when the kinetic energy of an object changes, energy is transferred to or from the object. [Clarification Statement: Examples of empirical evidence used in arguments could include an inventory or other representation of the energy before and after the transfer in the form of temperature changes or motion of an object.] [Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include calculations of energy.]

Utah SEEd Standard 8.2.3

Engage in argument to identify the strongest evidence that supports the claim that the kinetic energy of an object changes as energy is transferred to or from the object. Examples could include observing temperature changes as a result of friction, applying force to an object, or releasing potential energy from an object. (PS4.A)

Please note: This resource is not editable. The resource builds on previous standards and you may want to look at these companion pieces:

Thermal Energy and Heat Transfer MS PS3-4

Kinetic Energy Graphing Relationships of Mass and Speed MS PS3-1

Potential Energy Objects Interacting at a Distance MS PS3-2
