6th Grade (SCI) Physical Science Standards [PS2] Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions
SCI-MS.PS2.05 Conduct an investigation to provide evidence that fields exist between
objects exerting forces on each other even though the objects are not in
Clarification Statement: Examples of this phenomenon could include the interactions of magnets, electrically-charged strips of
tape, and electrically-charged pith balls. Examples of investigations could include first-hand experiences or
simulations. Disciplinary Core Ideas PS2.B: Types of Interactions
Forces that act at a distance (electric,
magnetic, and gravitational) can be explained
by fields that extend through space and can be
mapped by their effect on a test object (a
charged object, or a ball, respectively).
