Dr. David Purvis. After obtaining a PhD in Microbiology, I switched careers and became a middle school science teacher because I loved kids. Almost thirty years later I have taught science in some context to every grade level from pre-K to college education classes including several years of 8th grade physical science. My store offers rigorous resources that align meaningful content, an inquiry approach, NGSS standards, and student interest.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents. Assessment does not include quantitative measurements of energy.
Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another. Examples of devices could include electric circuits that convert electrical energy into motion energy of a vehicle, light, or sound; and, a passive solar heater that converts light into heat. Examples of constraints could include the materials, cost, or time to design the device. Devices should be limited to those that convert motion energy to electric energy or use stored energy to cause motion or produce light or sound.
