21st Century Science
SC.O.7.2.02: identify and describe disease causing organisms (such as bacteria, viruses, protozoa, fungi) and the diseases they cause.
SC.O.7.2.05: construct simple keys to differentiate among living things with similar characteristics.
SC.O.7.2.06: use pictures to show cyclical processes in nature (e.g., water cycle, nitrogen cycle, or carbon cycle).
SC.O.7.2.08: analyze how changes in the environment have led to reproductive adaptations through natural selection.
SC.O.7.2.10: analyze the differences in the growth, development and reproduction in flowering and non-flowering plants.
SC.O.7.2.11: predict the trends of interdependent populations if one of the limiting factors is changed.
SC.O.7.2.12: evaluate the consequences of the introduction of chemicals into the ecosystem (e.g., environmental consequences, human health risks, or mutations).
SC.O.7.2.14: examine the differences in types of solutions (e.g., solutes and solvents, relative concentrations, conductivity, pH).
SC.O.7.2.16: write word equations to describe chemical reactions.
SC.O.7.2.17: describe the movement of individual particles and verify the conservation of matter during the phase changes (e.g., melting, boiling, or freezing).
SC.O.7.2.19: define the absorption and reflection of light as translucent, opaque and transparent.
SC.O.7.2.20: interpret and illustrate changes in waves as they encounter various mediums (e.g., mirrors, or lenses).
SC.O.7.2.21: Investigate absorption and reflection of light by an object.
SC.O.7.2.22: characterize series and parallel circuits; AC and DC currents.
SC.O.7.2.23: explain conservation of matter and energy and investigate the different forms of energy (e.g., mechanical, potential, kinetic, or gravitational).
SC.O.7.2.24: perform experiments with simple machines to demonstrate the relationship between forces and distance; use vectors to represent motion.
SC.O.7.2.25: explain the effect of gravity on falling objects (e.g., g=9.8m/s2, object dropped on earth and on moon).
SC.O.7.2.26: describe and compare the causes of tides, surfs and currents.
SC.O.7.2.28: interpret GIS maps and create and interpret topographical maps.
SC.O.7.2.29: describe rock formations (e.g., rock cycle).
SC.O.7.2.30: classify rocks (e.g., crystal/particle size, or mineral composition and uses).
SC.O.7.2.33: trace the life cycle of a star.
