Thank you for purchasing this NGSS aligned resource “ENERGY AND HEAT”. This resource includes information and activities, which cover the core ideas from “MS-PS3.A Definitions of energy” and “MS-PS3.B Conservation of Energy and Energy Transfer”, which can be found in the unit “MS-PS3 ENERGY”.
This resource includes 3 labs and fully editable material, to meet the needs of your students.
Students will read the required information, complete activities, and then assess their learning using the performance based assignments. Each assignment is aligned to the performance standards which are found in the Next Generation Science Standards .
Each assignment includes notes, rubrics and an answer key. This resource will cover the following standards, performance standards and topics.
MS-PS3.A Definitions of Energy
MS-PS3.B Conservation of Energy and Energy Transfer
MS-PS3-3. Apply scientific principles to design, construct, and test a device that either minimizes or maximizes thermal energy transfer.
MS-PS3-4. Plan an investigation to determine the relationships among the energy transferred, the type of matter, the mass, and the change in the average kinetic energy of the particles as measured by the temperature of the sample.
MS-PS3–5. Construct, use, and present arguments to support the claim that when the kinetic energy of an object changes, energy is transferred to or from the object.
-The flow of energy on Earth
-Heat and Energy
-Changes of state
-Thermal energy transfer
This resource is designed to be delivered to your students over a 1-2 week period. Each information sheet, activity and assessment material includes performance and standard indicators, so that you and your students know which standards are being addressed.
I hope that you enjoy this resource.
