This unit aligns with the Common Core State Standards:
"STANDARD 5 - Matter and Energy
The competent science teacher understands the nature and properties of energy in its various forms, and the processes by which energy is exchanged and/or transformed.
5A. understands the atomic and nuclear structure of matter and the relationship to chemical and physical properties
5D. understands the characteristics and relationships among thermal, acoustical, radiant, electrical, chemical, mechanical, and nuclear energies
5G. uses kinetic theory and the laws of thermodynamics to explain energy transformations
5F. explains conservation of mass and energy and explains interactions of energy with matter, including changes in state
5I. demonstrates the ability to use instruments or to explain functions of the technologies used to study matter and energy."
Unit V “Energy and Heat” folder contains five comprehensive PowerPoint lessons; two review programs with printable color PDF worksheets; five student PPT note guides; a unit vocabulary sheet; several student worksheets and lab activities (PDF and Word) and several assessments with a unit test (short answer, multiple choice, matching, true/false questions) with answer keys also in PDF and Word.
PowerPoint lessons contain many graphics and at least two links to short videos for each lesson to further student understanding.
PowerPoint slides also contain notes for the instructor based on students most "frequently asked questions" or FAQ's to help clarify the subject.
A class activity is included at the end of each lesson and a 20-question interactive quiz/review at kahoot.it is also included as a link in the last slide of each program.
ActivInspire review programs are used as another interactive review of the material covered in the unit - but can also be used as a printable review/worksheet if the ActivInspire software is not available.
Individual lessons/programs (not assessments) can also be found separately in the AstronomyDad store.
