Force, Motion, and Energy

Science Newsletter

Students will be expected to:

  • compare and contrast potential and kinetic energy (10/31 - 11/7)
  • investigate the methods of thermal energy transfer, including conduction, convection, and radiation (1/8 - 1/17)
  • have an understanding that thermal energy travels in a predictable pattern from warmer to cooler until all substances attain the same temperature (1/8 - 1/17)
  • demonstrate energy transformations such as energy in a flashlight battery changes from chemical energy to electrical energy to light energy (12/4 - 12/14)
  • identify and describe changes in position, direction, and speed of an object when acted upon balanced and unbalanced forces (10/17 - 10/19)
  • calculate average speed using distance and time measurements (10/22 - 10/29)
  • measure and graph changes in motions (10/22 - 10/29)

What is speed?

Speed is a way of measuring how quickly something is moving or being done, or something moving fast. An example of speed is a car being driven 45 miles per hour. An example of speed is someone cleaning a room in 10 minutes. An example of speed is how quickly a jaguar runs.
