3: Physical Science

3.1: Describe how atoms of any given element are mostly alike, but are unlike atoms of other elements. Give examples of how two or more different elements can come together to form a compound.

Element Builder

3.2: Describe how energy is transferred from place to place through radiation, convection and conduction. Identify the mechanism by which energy is transferred from one system to another: thermally, mechanically, electrically and/or electromagnetically.

2D Collisions
Circuit Builder
Conduction and Convection
Heat Absorption
Heat Transfer by Conduction
Herschel Experiment

4: Earth and Space Science

4.1: Describe how water in its different forms cycles through the structures of the earth and its atmosphere. Describe how the oceans? effects on climate are the result of water?s high heat capacity, the circulation of water, and the large volume of water in the oceans.

Water Cycle

5: Life Science

5.1: Compare and contrast the major organelles within plant and animal cells. Investigate the differences between single-celled and mulitcellular organisms. Give examples of single-celled and multicellular organisms. Explain that many cells continually divide to make more cells for growth and repair of a multicellular organism. Describe the hierarchical organization of multicellular organisms from cells to tissues to organs to systems within organisms.

Cell Division
Cell Structure
Paramecium Homeostasis
RNA and Protein Synthesis

5.3: Explain why asexual reproduction usually results in off spring with genes identical (or nearly so) to those of the single parent. Give examples of organisms that undergo asexual reproduction. Compare asexual reproduction with sexual reproduction. Explain how specialized cells are formed as a result of cell division in a fertilized egg.
