SB1: Students develop an understanding of the characteristic properties of matter and the relationship of these properties to their structure and behavior. The student demonstrates an understanding of the structure and properties of matter by:

SB1.1: classifying matter according to physical properties (i.e., color, size, shape, weight, texture, flexibility).

 Heat Absorption
 Mineral Identification
 Weight and Mass

SB2: Students develop an understanding that energy appears in different forms, can be transformed from one form to another, can be transferred or moved from one place or system to another, may be unavailable for use, and is ultimately conserved. The student demonstrates an understanding of how energy can be transformed, transferred, and conserved by:

SB2.1: classifying materials as insulators or conductors (i.e., fur, metal, wood, plastic) and identifying their applications.

 Circuit Builder

SB3: Students develop an understanding of the interactions between matter and energy, including physical, chemical, and nuclear changes, and the effects of these interactions on physical systems. The student demonstrates an understanding of the interactions between matter and energy and the effects of these interactions on systems by:

SB3.1: recognizing that temperature changes cause changes in phases of substances (e.g., ice changing to liquid, water changing to water vapor, and vice versa).

 Phases of Water

SB4: Students develop an understanding of motions, forces, their characteristics and relationships, and natural forces and their effects.The student demonstrates an understanding of motions, forces, their characteristics, relationships, and effects by:

SB4.1: recognizing that objects can be moved without being touched (e.g., using magnets, falling objects, static electricity).

 Free Fall Tower
 Golf Range
 Magnetism
 Shoot the Monkey

SC1: Students develop an understanding of how science explains changes in life forms over time, including genetics, heredity, the process of natural selection, and biological evolution. The student demonstrates an understanding of how science explains changes in life forms over time, including genetics, heredity, the process of natural selection and biological evolution by:

SC1.2: describing how some traits (e.g., claws, teeth, camouflage) of living organisms have helped them survive as a species.

 Evolution: Mutation and Selection

SC2: Students develop an understanding of the structure, function, behavior, development, life cycles, and diversity of living organisms.The student demonstrates an understanding of the structure, function, behavior, development, life cycles, and diversity of living organisms by:

SC2.2: observing and comparing external features of plants and of animals that may help them grow, survive, and reproduce.

 Flower Pollination

SC3: Students develop an understanding that all organisms are linked to each other and their physical environments through the transfer and transformation of matter and energy. The student demonstrates an understanding that all organisms are linked to each other and their physical environments through the transfer and transformation of matter and energy by:

SC3.2: organizing a simple food chain of familiar plants and animals.

 Prairie Ecosystem

SD1: Students develop an understanding of Earth's geochemical cycles. The student demonstrates an understanding of geochemical cycles by:

SD1.2: describing the water cycle to show that water circulates through the crust, oceans, and atmosphere of Earth.

 Water Cycle

SD4: Students develop an understanding of the theories regarding the evolution of the universe. The student demonstrates an understanding of the theories regarding the origin and evolution of the universe by:

SD4.2: recognizing that objects have properties, locations, and movements that can be observed and described.

 Phases of the Moon
 Star Spectra
