SB1: Students develop an understanding of the characteristic properties of matter and the relationship of these properties to their structure and behavior.
SB1.1: describing atoms and their base components (i.e., protons, neutrons, electrons).
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.
SB2.1: applying the concepts of heat transfer (i.e., conduction, convection, radiation) to Alaskan dwellings.
Herschel Experiment - Metric
SB2.2: recognizing simple electrical circuits.
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.
SB3.1: recognizing that a chemical reaction has taken place.
SB3.3: recognizing that atoms emit and absorb electromagnetic radiation.
SB4: Students develop an understanding of motions, forces, their characteristics and relationships, and natural forces and their effects.
SB4.1: explaining the relationship of motion to an object’s mass, and the applied force.
Fan Cart Physics
SB4.2: recognizing that the gravitational attraction between objects is proportional to their masses and decreasing with their distance.
Pith Ball Lab
SB4.3: describing the interactions of waves (i.e., reflection, refraction, wave addition).
Sound Beats and Sine Waves
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.
SC1.1: recognizing that all organisms have chromosomes made of DNA and that DNA determines traits.
SC1.2: using probabilities to recognize patterns of inheritance (e.g., Punnett Squares).
Mouse Genetics (One Trait)
Mouse Genetics (Two Traits)
SC1.3: inferring evolutionary pathways from evidence (e.g., fossils, geologic samples, recorded history).
Human Evolution - Skull Analysis
SC2: Students develop an understanding of the structure, function, behavior, development, life cycles, and diversity of living organisms.
SC2.3: stating the function of major physiological systems (i.e., circulatory, excretory, digestive, respiratory, reproductive, nervous, immune, endocrine, musculoskeletal, and integumentary).
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.
SC3.1: describing the carbon and nitrogen cycle within an ecosystem and how the continual input of energy from sunlight keeps the process going.
SC3.3: identifying dynamic factors (e.g., carrying capacity, limiting factors, biodiversity, and productivity) that affect population size.
Coral Reefs 1 - Abiotic Factors
Coral Reefs 2 - Biotic Factors
Rabbit Population by Season
SD2: Students develop an understanding of the origins, ongoing processes, and forces that shape the structure, composition, and physical history of the Earth.
SD2.2: describing how the theory of plate tectonics explains the dynamic nature of its surface.
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.
SD3.1: recognizing the effect of the moon and sun on tides.
Tides - Metric
