P: Physical Science

P.1: All matter is made of atoms, which are far too small to see directly through a light microscope. Elements have unique atoms and thus, unique properties. Atoms themselves are made of even smaller particles

P.1.c: Develop an evidence based scientific explanation of the atomic model as the foundation for all chemistry

 Element Builder

P.3: The physical characteristics and changes of solid, liquid, and gas states can be explained using the particulate model

P.3.a: Explain how the arrangement and motion of particles in a substance such as water determine its state

 Phases of Water

P.3.b: Distinguish between changes in temperature and changes of state using the particle model of matter

 Phases of Water

P.4: Distinguish among, explain, and apply the relationships among mass, weight, volume, and density

P.4.a: Explain that the mass of an object does not change, but its weight changes based on the gravitational forces acting upon it

 Weight and Mass

P.4.b: Predict how changes in acceleration due to gravity will affect the mass and weight of an object

 Free-Fall Laboratory
 Weight and Mass

P.4.c: Predict how mass, weight, and volume affect density

 Density Experiment: Slice and Dice
 Density Laboratory

P.4.d: Measure mass and volume, and use these quantities to calculate density

 Density Experiment: Slice and Dice
 Density Laboratory
 Weight and Mass

P.4.e: Use tools to gather, view, analyze, and report results for scientific investigations about the relationships among mass, weight, volume, and density

 Density Experiment: Slice and Dice
 Density Laboratory
 Weight and Mass

L: Life Science

L.1: Changes in environmental conditions can affect the survival of individual organisms, populations, and entire species

L.1.a: Interpret and analyze data about changes in environmental conditions - such as climate change - and populations that support a claim describing why a specific population might be increasing or decreasing

 Coral Reefs 1 - Abiotic Factors

L.1.b: Develop, communicate, and justify an evidence-based explanation about how ecosystems interact with and impact the global environment

 Coral Reefs 1 - Abiotic Factors

L.2: Organisms interact with each other and their environment in various ways that create a flow of energy and cycling of matter in an ecosystem

L.2.a: Develop, communicate, and justify an evidence-based explanation about why there generally are more producers than consumers in an ecosystem

 Coral Reefs 1 - Abiotic Factors
 Food Chain
 Forest Ecosystem

L.2.b: Design a food web diagram to show the flow of energy through an ecosystem

 Forest Ecosystem

L.2.c: Compare and contrast the flow of energy with the cycling of matter in ecosystems

 Cell Energy Cycle
 Food Chain

E: Earth Systems Science

E.2: Water on Earth is distributed and circulated through oceans, glaciers, rivers, ground water, and the atmosphere

E.2.a: Gather and analyze data from a variety of print resources and investigations to account for local and world-wide water circulation and distribution patterns

 Water Cycle

E.2.b: Use evidence to model how water is transferred throughout the earth

 Water Cycle

E.2.d: Identify the various causes and effects of water pollution in local and world water distributions

 Water Pollution
