1.S.b: Describe the basic structure, form and function of the major organs in the respiratory, circulatory, digestive, excretory, integument, and nervous system;

Circulatory System

2: Matter and Materials - Properties of and Changes in Matter

2.G: General Learning Outcomes

Phases of Water

2.G.1: Demonstrate an understanding of the three states of matter (solid, liquid, gas) and of changes in state;

Phases of Water

2.G.2: Investigate common changes of state (e.g., melting, freezing, condensing, evaporating) and make informed choices about materials when finding solutions to problems in designing and constructing objects based on their understanding of the states of matter; and

Phases of Water

2.S: Specific Learning Outcomes

2.S.a: Identify and describe some changes to materials that are reversible and some that are not (e.g., freezing and melting are reversible; burning is not);

Phases of Water

2.S.d: Identify the three different states of matter (solid, liquid, and gas) and give examples of each state (e.g., solid: sugar, rock; liquid: water, vegetable oil; gases: water vapour, air, oxygen);

Phases of Water

2.S.e: Describe the characteristic properties of each of the three states of matter based on their properties (e.g., solids have definite shape and volume and hold their shape; liquids have definite volume but take the shape of their containers; gases have no definite volume and take the shape of their container);

Phases of Water

2.S.f: Recognize, on the basis of their observations, that melting and evaporation require heat;

Phases of Water

2.S.g: Recognize melting, freezing, condensation, and evaporation as changes in state that can be reversed;

Phases of Water

3: Energy and Control - Conservation of Energy

3.S: Specific Learning Outcomes

3.S.a: Distinguish between a renewable and nonrenewable source of energy; (renewable: wood, bio-fuels, wind, solar, geothermal, water; non-renewable oil, gas, coal);

Energy Conversions

3.S.d: Recognize that energy cannot be created or destroyed but can only be changed from one form into another (e.g., chemical energy in a battery can be converted to electrical energy);

Energy Conversions

4: Structures and Mechanisms - Forces Acting on Structures and Mechanisms

4.S: Specific Learning Outcomes

4.S.c: Compare qualitatively and quantitatively the force needed to lift a load manually with the force required to lift the load with a simple machine (e.g., lever, pulley system, gear system);

Ants on a Slant (Inclined Plane)
Levers
Pulleys
Wheel and Axle

4.S.f: Identify the force required by different pulley systems (systems with one or more pulleys) to move a load, and compare the systems in qualitative terms.

Pulleys

5: Earth and Space Systems - Weather

5.S: Specific Learning Outcomes

5.S.b: Recognize large-scale and local weather systems (e.g., fronts, air masses, storms);

Weather Maps - Metric

5.S.c: Predict local weather patterns using data from their own observations of weather and from weather reports;

Weather Maps - Metric

5.S.d: Explain the formation of clouds and the effects of different cloud formations on weather and climate (e.g., create a model of a cloud in a jar and relate it to the water cycle; describe the relationship between the formation of cumulonimbus clouds and thunderstorms);

Water Cycle

5.S.e: Describe the water cycle in terms of evaporation, condensation, and precipitation;
