6.0.4: Implementing a Plan

6.0.4.a: Carry out procedures that comprise a fair test.

6.0.5: Observing, Measuring, Recording

6.0.5.c: Select and use tools and instruments to observe, measure, and construct.

6.0.5.d: Evaluate the appropriateness of units and measuring tools in practical contexts.

6.0.6: Analysing and Interpreting

6.0.6.a: Construct graphs to display data, and interpret and evaluate these and other graphs.

6.0.7: Concluding and Applying

6.0.7.a: Draw a conclusion that explains investigation results.

6.0.7.c: Identify a new prediction/hypothesis based on results of investigations.

6.0.7.g: Communicate methods, results, conclusions, and new knowledge in a variety of ways.

6.0.7.h: Identify connections between the investigation results and everyday life.

#### 6.1: Diversity of Living Things

6.1.07: Recognize that many living things are difficult to see with the unaided eye, and observe and describe some examples.

#### 6.2: Flight

6.2.09: Provide examples of design features or adaptations that enhance or reduce drag, and explain how they work.

#### 6.3: Electricity

6.3.06: Develop a definition of an electrical circuit, based on classroom explorations.

6.3.07: Experiment to classify a variety of materials as insulators or conductors.

6.3.08: Demonstrate and describe the function of switches in electrical circuits.

6.3.09: Construct and diagram simple series circuits and simple parallel circuits.

6.3.10: Explore to determine factors that affect bulb brightness in simple series and parallel circuits.

6.3.11: Use the design process to construct an electrical circuit that performs a useful function.

6.3.14: Identify forms of energy that may result from the transformation of electrical energy, and recognize that energy can only be changed from one form into another, not created or destroyed.

6.3.18: Describe factors that affect the consumption of electrical energy, and outline an action plan to reduce electrical energy consumption at home, at school, or in the community.

#### 6.4: The Solar System

6.4.08: Recognize that the Sun is the centre of the solar system and it is the source of energy for life on Earth.

6.4.09: Identify the planets in the solar system and describe their size relative to the Earth and their position relative to the Sun.

6.4.10: Classify planets as inner or outer planets, based on their position relative to the asteroid belt, and describe characteristics of each type.

6.4.11: Recognize that mass is the amount of matter in an object, that weight is the force of gravity on the mass of an object, and that the force of gravity varies from planet to planet.

6.4.12: Explain, using models and simulations, how the Earth's rotation causes the cycle of day and night, and how the Earth's tilt of axis and revolution cause the yearly cycle of seasons.

6.4.14: Explain how the relative positions of the Earth, moon, and Sun are responsible for moon phases and eclipses.

6.4.15: Identify points of reference in the night sky and recognize that the apparent movement of celestial objects is regular, predictable, and related to the Earth's rotation and revolution.
