Next Generation Standards
4-PS3-2 - Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents.
Assessment Boundary - Assessment does not include quantitative measurements of energy.
4-PS3-2 - Make observations to show that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents.
Clarification Statement - Evidence of energy being transferred can include vibrations felt a small distance from a source, a solar-powered toy that moves when placed in direct light, warming a metal object on one end and observing the other end getting warm, and a wire carrying electric energy from a battery to light a bulb.
Assessment Boundary - Quantitative measurements of energy are not expected in state assessment.
