NC Essential Standards Correlation - Cosmic Colors


Science Correlations

4.P.3.2 - Recognize that light travels in a straight line until it strikes an object or travels from one medium to another, and that light can be reflected, refracted, and absorbed.


Science Correlations

6.P.1.1 - Compare the properties of waves to the wavelike property of energy in earthquakes, light and sound.
6.P.1.2 - Explain the relationship among visible light, the electromagnetic spectrum, and sight.
6.P.3.2 - Explain the effects of electromagnetic waves on various materials to include absorption, scattering, and change in temperature.
6.L.1.2 - Explain the significance of the processes of photosynthesis, respiration and transpiration to the survival of green plants and other organisms. -> [Photosynthesis - chlorophyll]
6.L.2.1 - Summarize how energy derived from the sun is used by plants to produce sugars (photosynthesis) and is transferred within food chains and food webs (terrestrial and 
aquatic) from producers to consumers to decomposers.


Science Correlations

Phy.2.2.1 - Analyze how energy is transmitted through waves, using the fundamental characteristics of waves:  wavelength, period, frequency, amplitude, and wave velocity.
Phy.2.2.2 - Analyze wave behaviors in terms of transmission, reflection, refraction and interference.


Science Correlations

PSc.3.2.1 - Explain the relationships among wave frequency, wave period, wave velocity, amplitude, and wavelength through calculation and investigation.
PSc.3.2.2 - Compare waves (mechanical, electromagnetic, and surface) using their characteristics.
