2.1: The student will develop skills to describe objects.
2.1.1: observes properties of objects and measures those properties using appropriate tools.
2.1.4: recognizes and describes the differences between solids, liquids, and gases.
Phases of Water
2.2: The student will describe the motion of objects.
2.2.1: moves objects by pushing, pulling, throwing, spinning, dropping, and rolling; and describes the motion.
Force and Fan Carts
Free Fall Tower

2.4.3: constructs a simple circuit.
3: The student will develop an understanding of biological concepts through direct experience with living things, their life cycles, and their habitats.
3.1: The student will develop knowledge of organisms in their environment.
3.1.2: compares basic needs of different organisms in their environment.
3.1.3: discusses ways organisms use their senses to survive in their environments.
4: The student will observe objects, materials, and changes in their environment, note their properties, distinguish one from another, and develop their own explanations making sense of their observations.
