U1: Science Processes & Flow of Energy

Science Processes:
7.1(A) demonstrate safe practices during laboratory and field investigations as outlined in Texas
Education Agency‐approved safety standards
7.1(B) practice appropriate use and conservation of resources, including disposal, reuse, or recycling of
7.2(B) design and implement experimental investigations by making observations, asking well defined
questions, formulating testable hypotheses, and using appropriate equipment and technology
7.2(C) collect and record data using the International System of Units (SI) and qualitative means such
as labeled drawings, writing, and graphic organizers
7.2(D) construct tables and graphs, using repeated trials and means, to organize data and identify
7.2(E) analyze data to formulate reasonable explanations, communicate valid conclusions supported
by the data, and predict trends
7.3(A) analyze, evaluate, and critique scientific explanations by using empirical evidence, logical
reasoning, and experimental and observational testing so as to encourage critical thinking by the
7.3(B) use models to represent aspects of the natural world such as human body systems and plant
and animal cells
7.3(C) identify advantages and limitations of models such as size, scale, and properties, and materials
7.3(D) relate the impact of research on scientific thought and society, including the history of science
and contributions of scientists as related to the content

5a: RECOGNIZE that radiant energy from the Sun is transformed into chemical energy through photosynthesis.

5b: DIAGRAM the flow of energy through living systems, including food chains, food webs and energy pyramids.
