SC.P.STM: Structure and Transformation of Matter (Physical Science)
SC.P.STM.U: Enduring Knowledge ? Understandings
SC.P.STM.U.1: objects are made of one or more materials and investigating the properties of those materials helps in sorting and describing them.
SC.P.STM.U.2: tools such as thermometers, magnifiers, rulers and balances can give more information about objects than can be obtained by just making observations.
SC.P.STM.U.3: things can be done to materials to change some of their properties, but not all materials respond the same way to what is done to them.
SC.P.STM.U.4: water can be a liquid, solid, or gas and can go back and forth from one form to another.
SC.P.MF: Motion and Forces (Physical Science)
SC.P.MF.U: Enduring Knowledge ? Understandings
SC.P.MF.U.1: things move in many different ways (e.g., fast and slow, back and forth, straight, zig zag, etc.).
SC.P.MF.U.4: vibration is a type of motion that is responsible for making sound.
SC.P.MF.U.5: magnetism is a force that can make some things move without touching them.
SC.P.MF.S: Skills and Concepts
SC.P.MF.S.5: explore differences in sounds (high and low pitch) produced by vibrations (e.g., making musical instruments that have moving parts that vibrate to produce sound)
SC.P.MF.S.6: observe interactions of magnets with other magnets and with other matter (e.g., magnets have a force that can make some things move without touching them; larger size of a magnet does not have to mean it has greater force) in order to make generalizations about the behavior of magnets
SC.P.EU: The Earth and the Universe (Earth/Space Science)
SC.P.EU.U: Enduring Knowledge ? Understandings
SC.P.EU.U.3: the sun, moon and stars appear to move slowly across the sky at different speeds and we can see patterns in their movement with careful observation.
SC.P.EU.U.4: the sun can only be seen in the daytime. The moon can sometimes be seen during the day and sometimes be seen at night and its shape changes in a predictable pattern.
SC.P.EU.U.5: observable interactions of the sun, moon and the Earth can be used to identify the apparent pattern of their movement.
SC.P.EU.S: Skills and Concepts
SC.P.EU.S.1: use senses and scientific tools (e.g., hand lens/magnifier, metric ruler, balance, etc.) to observe, describe and classify earth materials (solid rocks, soils, water and air) using their physical properties
SC.P.EU.S.5: observe the locations and real or apparent movements of the sun and the moon
SC.P.EU.S.7: communicate observations, investigations and conclusions orally and with written words, charts and diagrams
SC.P.UD: Unity and Diversity (Biological Science)
SC.P.UD.S: Skills and Concepts
SC.P.UD.S.7: ask questions that can be investigated, plan and conduct ?fair tests,? and communicate (e.g., write, draw, speak, multi-media) findings to others
SC.P.BC: Biological Change (Biological Science)
SC.P.BC.U: Enduring Knowledge ? Understandings
SC.P.BC.U.4: things change in some ways and stay the same in some ways.
SC.P.ET: Energy Transformations (Unifying Concepts)
SC.P.ET.U: Enduring Knowledge ? Understandings
SC.P.ET.U.2: almost all kinds of food that animals eat can be traced back to plants. Food chains/webs are useful models of these relationships.
SC.P.ET.U.4: light can be observed to determine how it travels and how it interacts with different materials (e.g. reflects, is absorbed, passes through).
SC.P.ET.U.5: electricity can only flow when it has a closed path (circuit) to follow. Closed electric circuits can produce light and sound.
SC.P.ET.S: Skills and Concepts
SC.P.ET.S.1: identify examples and sources of energy
SC.P.ET.S.3: observe, illustrate and explain basic relationships of plants and animals in an ecosystem (e.g., use simple food chains and webs to explain how plants and animals get food/energy to live and grow)
SC.P.ET.S.5: demonstrate open and closed circuits using batteries, bulbs and wires and analyze models of basic electrical circuits in order to determine whether a simple circuit is open or closed
