Voluntary State Curriculum
2.C.1: Gather information and provide evidence about the physical environment, becoming familiar with the details of geological features, observing and mapping locations of hills, valleys, rivers, and canyons.
2.C.1.b: Describe the natural features in their immediate outdoor environment, and compare the features with those of another region in Maryland.
2.E.1: Recognize and describe that water can be found as a liquid or a solid on the Earth's surface and as a gas in the Earth's atmosphere.
2.E.1.b: Observe and explain what happens when liquid water disappears.
2.E.1.b.1: Turns into water vapor (gas) in the air
2.E.1.b.2: Can reappear as a liquid or solid when cooled, such as clouds, fog, rain, snow, etc.
3.B.1: Explore the world of minute living things to describe what they look like, how they live, and how they interact with their environment.
3.B.1.b: Describe any observable activity displayed by these organisms.
3.B.1.d: Use information gathered about these minute organisms to compare mechanisms they have to satisfy their basic needs to those used by larger organisms.
3.E.1: Recognize that materials continue to exist even though they change from one form to another.
3.E.1.c: Observe and record the sequence of changes that occur to plants and animals that die and decay.
4.A.1: Identify ways to classify objects using supporting evidence from investigations of observable properties.
4.A.1.a: Classify objects based on their observable properties.
4.C.1: Provide evidence from investigations to describe the effect that changes in temperature have on the properties of materials.
4.C.1.a: Based on data gathered from investigations, identify and describe the changes that occur to the observable properties of materials when different degrees of heat is applied to them, such as melting chocolate pieces, boiling an egg.
4.C.1.b: Observe and describe the changes cooling causes to the observable properties of materials when they are cooled, such as freezing water in a straw, milk in an ice cream maker.
4.C.1.c: Cite examples of similar changes that heating and cooling have on the observable properties of various other materials.
5.A.1: Cite evidence from observations to describe the motion of an object using position and speed.
5.A.1.a: Describe the position of an object by locating it relative to another object or to its the background.
5.A.1.b: Using information from multiple trials, compare the speeds (faster or slower) of objects that travel the same distance in different amounts of time.
5.A.1.c: Using information from multiple trials, compare the distances that objects moving at different speeds travel in the same amount of time.
5.A.2: Explain that changes in the ways objects move are caused by forces.
5.A.2.a: Observe and describe the way an object's motion changes in a variety of situations (rolling a ball, bouncing a ball, dropping a yo-yo, winding up a toy, etc.) and identify what may have caused the change.
5.A.2.b: Describe changes in the motion of objects as they move across different textured surfaces and suggest possible causes for the change.
5.A.2.c: Observe and describe that objects fall to the ground unless something holds them up (gravity).
5.B.1: Recognize and describe that heat is transferred between objects that are at different temperatures.
5.B.1.a: Recognize and describe that the temperature of an object increases when heat is added and decreases when heat is removed.
5.B.1.b: Recognize and describe that heat will flow between object at different temperatures until they reach the same temperature.
