Tested State Standards
1.3.5: The student knows that matter has measurable physical properties and those properties determine how matter is classified, changed, and used.
1.3.5.C: predict, observe, and record changes in the state of matter caused by heating or cooling.
1.5.5: The student knows that matter has measurable physical properties and those properties determine how matter is classified, changed, and used.
1.5.5.A: classify matter based on physical properties, including mass, magnetism, physical state (solid, liquid, and gas), relative density (sinking and floating), solubility in water, and the ability to conduct or insulate thermal energy or electric energy;
2.5.6: The student knows that energy occurs in many forms and can be observed in cycles, patterns, and systems.
2.5.6.C: demonstrate that light travels in a straight line until it strikes an object or travels through one medium to another and demonstrate that light can be reflected such as the use of mirrors or other shiny surfaces and refracted such as the appearance of an object when observed through water; and
3.3.8: The student knows there are recognizable patterns in the natural world and among objects in the sky.
3.3.8.D: identify the planets in Earth?s solar system and their position in relation to the Sun.
3.4.8: The student knows that there are recognizable patterns in the natural world and among the Sun, Earth, and Moon system.
3.4.8.A: measure and record changes in weather and make predictions using weather maps, weather symbols, and a map key;
3.4.8.B: describe and illustrate the continuous movement of water above and on the surface of Earth through the water cycle and explain the role of the Sun as a major source of energy in this process; and
3.4.8.C: collect and analyze data to identify sequences and predict patterns of change in shadows, tides, seasons, and the observable appearance of the Moon over time.
3.5.7: The student knows Earth?s surface is constantly changing and consists of useful resources.
3.5.7.A: explore the processes that led to the formation of sedimentary rocks and fossil fuels;
3.5.8: The student knows that there are recognizable patterns in the natural world and among the Sun, Earth, and Moon system.
3.5.8.B: explain how the Sun and the ocean interact in the water cycle;
3.5.8.C: demonstrate that Earth rotates on its axis once approximately every 24 hours causing the day/night cycle and the apparent movement of the Sun across the sky; and
4.5.10: The student knows that organisms undergo similar life processes and have structures that help them survive within their environments.
4.5.10.B: differentiate between inherited traits of plants and animals such as spines on a cactus or shape of a beak and learned behaviors such as an animal learning tricks or a child riding a bicycle; and
4.5.9: The student knows that there are relationships, systems, and cycles within environments.
4.5.9.B: describe how the flow of energy derived from the Sun, used by producers to create their own food, is transferred through a food chain and food web to consumers and decomposers;
5.5.2: The student uses scientific methods during laboratory and outdoor investigations.
5.5.2.A: describe, plan, and implement simple experimental investigations testing one variable;
5.5.2.B: ask well-defined questions, formulate testable hypotheses, and select and use appropriate equipment and technology;
5.5.2.G: construct appropriate simple graphs, tables, maps, and charts using technology, including computers, to organize, examine, and evaluate information.
5.5.4: The student knows how to use a variety of tools and methods to conduct science inquiry.
5.5.4.A: collect, record, and analyze information using tools, including calculators, microscopes, cameras, computers, hand lenses, metric rulers, Celsius thermometers, prisms, mirrors, pan balances, triple beam balances, spring scales, graduated cylinders, beakers, hot plates, meter sticks, magnets, collecting nets, and notebooks; timing devices, including clocks and stopwatches; and materials to support observations of habitats or organisms such as terrariums and aquariums; and
