1.S.b: Classify organisms according to their role in a food chain (e.g., producer, consumer); Demonstrate an understanding of a food chain as a system in which energy from the sun is transferred eventually to animals. Be able to construct food chains of different plant and animal species (egg, grass - arctic hare - fox), and classify animals as omnivore, carnivore, or herbivore;
1.S.c: Demonstrate an understanding of a food chain as a system in which energy from the sun is transferred eventually to animals. Be able to construct food chains of different plant and animal species (egg, grass - arctic hare - fox), and classify animals as omnivore, carnivore, or herbivore;
2.G.1: Demonstrate understanding that certain materials can transmit, reflect, refract or absorb light or sound;
2.G.2: Investigate materials that transmit, reflect, refract or absorb light or sound and use their findings in designing objects and choosing materials from which to construct them; and
2.S.c: Demonstrate how opaque materials absorb light and thereby cast shadows;
3.S.d: Identify through observation, colour as a property of light (e.g., use prisms, water in a jar, crystals in the window, water droplets on an overhead projector and show that white light can be separated into colours, ROY G BIV);
3.S.e: Predict the location, shape and size of a shadow when a light source is placed in a given location relative to an object;
4.G.1: Demonstrate an understanding of the characteristics of pulleys and gears;
4.G.2: Design and make pulley systems and gear systems, to investigate how motion is transferred from one system to another; and
4.S.a: Describe, using their observations, the functions of pulley systems and gear systems (e.g., they make changes in direction, speed, and force possible);
4.S.c: Describe, using their observations, how gears operate in one plane (e.g., spur gears, idle gears) and in two planes (e.g., crown bevel, or worm gears); and
4.S.d: Demonstrate an awareness of the concept of mechanical advantage by using a variety of pulleys and gears.
5.G.2: Investigate, test, and compare the physical properties of rocks and minerals and investigate the factors that cause erosion of the landscape; and
5.G.3: Describe the effects of human activity (e.g., land development, building of dams, mine development, erosion preventing measures) on physical features of the landscape, and examine the use of rocks and minerals in making consumer products.
5.S.b: Classify rocks and minerals according to chosen criteria, relying on their observations (e.g., colour, texture, shape);
