Grade Level Expectations
1.A.3: Describe some structural and behavioral adaptations that allow organisms to survive in a changing environment.
1.B.1: Describe in general terms the chemical processes of photosynthesis and respiration.
1.B.2: Analyze how the finite resources in an ecosystem limit the types and populations of organisms within it.
1.B.4: Generate examples of the variety of ways that organisms interact (e.g., competition, predator/prey, parasitism/mutualism)
1.C.5: Describe how body systems work together.
2.E.1: Predict and test whether objects will float or sink based on a qualitative and quantitative understanding of the concepts of density and buoyancy.
2.E.4: Describe how a substance can combine with different substances in different ways, depending on the conditions and the properties of each substance.
2.E.5: Describe how the motion of the particles of matter determines the state of that matter (e.g., solid, liquid, gas, plasma) and vice versa.
2.H.2: Demonstrate that energy cannot be created or destroyed but only changed from one form to another.
2.H.3: Compare and contrast the ways energy travels (e.g., waves, conduction, convection, radiation).
2.H.5: Categorize energy sources as renewable or non-renewable and compare how these sources are used by humans.
2.I.1: Describe the motion of objects using knowledge of Newton's Laws.
2.I.2: Use mathematics to describe the motion of objects (e.g., speed, distance, time, acceleration).
3.D.2: Explain how scientists use fossils to prove that life forms, climate, environment, and geologic features in a certain location are not the same now as they were in the past.
3.D.4: Compare how sexually and asexually reproducing species transfer genetic information to offspring.
3.F.1: Demonstrate how the earth's tilt on its axis results in the seasons.
3.F.4: Describe factors that can cause short-term and long-term changes to the earth.
3.G.1: Compare past and present knowledge about characteristics of stars (e.g., composition, location, lifecycles) and explain how people have learned about them.
3.G.5: Describe the motions of moons, planets, stars, solar systems, and galaxies.
