In other words, everything in our universe moves. Changes in motion such as speeding up, slowing down, and changing direction are due to the effect of forces.

For example, a rolling ball slows down and changes direction because of friction and objects in its path.

Domain 2: What We Know About the World Around Us

The Physical Environment

Standard 15: FORCES, MOTION, SOUND, AND LIGHT: Students explain the relationship between force, mass and motion of objects; they analyze the nature of sound and electromagnetic radiation.

Standard Number:1

K-3

MOTION

Describe the various ways or paths in which things can move such as back and forth, zigzag, and circular.

Describe a method to change how something is moving, such as applying more or less force(e.g., push-pull).

SOUND

Describe how things make sound.

LIGHT

Describe what makes light.

4-5

MOTION AND FORCES

Explain how changing force can change the speed or direction of an object.

Use time to describe motion.

ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION

Explain that light travels in a straight line until it strikes an object(e.g., reflected by a mirror, refracted by a lens or absorbed by an object).

K-4 National Standards: Physical Science

Properties of objects and materials

Position and motion of objects.

Light, heat, electricity, and magnetism.

5-8 National Standards: Physical Science

Properties and changes of properties in matter.

Motion and forces.

Transfer of engery.

1. Identifies sources of light.

Grade 1

The Student:

MOTION

1. Describes the various ways or paths in which things can move.

2. Identifies how things can be started or stopped.

SOUND

1. Describes the different kinds of sound.

LIGHT

1. Describes different light.

Grade 2

The Student:

MOTION

1. Draw or identify the various ways or paths in which things can move such as back and forth, zigzag, and circular.

2. Describes a method to change how something is moving.

SOUND

1. Describes a method to change the sound an object makes.

LIGHT

1. Capture a light source and make it change direction.

Grade 3

The Student:

MOTION

1. Describes the various ways or paths in which things can move such as back and forth, zigzag, and circular.

2. Describes a method to change how something is moving, such as applyig more or less force (e.g., push-pull).

SOUND

1. Demonstrates how things make sound through vibration.

LIGHT

1. Describe the different ways we get light.

Grade 4

The Student:

MOTION AND FORCES

1. Describes how changing the force operating on an object can change how the object moves.

2. Uses time to describe motion.

ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION

1. Explains that light travels in a straight line until it strikes an object(e.g., reflected by a mirror, refracted by a lens or absorbed by an object).

Grade 5

The Student:

MOTION AND FORCES

1. Explains how a greater force creates a greater change in motion (speed or direction).

2. Uses time to describe motion.

ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION

1. Explains that light travels in a straight line until it strikes an object(e.g., reflected by a mirror, refracted by a lens or absorbed by an object).
