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: comparing models that represent matter as solids, liquids, or gases and the changes from one state to another.

 Phases of Water

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 understanding of the interactions between matter and energy and the effects of these interactions on systems by:

SB3.1: identifying physical and chemical changes based on observable characteristics (e.g., tearing paper vs. burning paper).

 Chemical Changes
 Density Experiment: Slice and Dice

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: investigating that the greater the force acting on an object, the greater the change in motion will be.

 Force and Fan Carts

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:

SC1.1: contrasting inherited traits (e.g., flower color, number of limbs) with those that are not (riding a bike, scar from an accident).

 Inheritance

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: explaining how external features and internal systems (i.e., respiratory, excretory, skeletal, circulatory, and digestive) of plants and animals may help them grow, survive, and reproduce.

 Circulatory System
 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 that traces the source of the energy back to sunlight.

 Prairie Ecosystem

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

SD1.1: observing a model of the rock cycle showing that smaller rocks come from the breaking and weathering of larger rocks and that smaller rocks (e.g., sediments and sands) may combine with plant materials to form soils.

 Rock Cycle

SD3: Students develop an understanding of the cyclical changes controlled by energy from the sun and by Earth's position and motion in our solar system. The student demonstrates an understanding of cycles influenced by energy from the sun and by Earth's position and motion in our solar system by:

SD3.2: comparing heat absorption and loss by land and water.

 Heat Absorption
 Radiation

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 the Earth is in regular and predictable motion and this motion explains the length of a day and year.

 Seasons: Earth, Moon, and Sun
