SB1: Students develop an understanding of the characteristic properties of matter and the relationship of these properties to their structure and behavior.
SB1.1: using the periodic table to describe atoms in terms of 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: examining energy (i.e., nuclear, electromagnetic, chemical, mechanical, thermal) transfers, transformations, and efficiencies by comparing useful energy to total energy.
Energy Conversion in a System
Inclined Plane - Sliding Objects
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: describing the behavior of electrons in chemical bonding.
SB3.2: recognizing that radioactivity is a result of the decay of unstable nuclei.
SB4: Students develop an understanding of motions, forces, their characteristics and relationships, and natural forces and their effects.
SB4.1: recognizing that when one thing exerts a force on another, an equal amount of force is exerted back on it.
Fan Cart Physics
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.
SC1.2: explaining how the processes of natural selection can cause speciation and extinction.
Evolution: Mutation and Selection
Rainfall and Bird Beaks
SC1.3: examining issues related to genetics
SC2: Students develop an understanding of the structure, function, behavior, development, life cycles, and diversity of living organisms.
SC2.3: explaining the functions of organs of major systems (i.e., respiratory, digestive, circulatory, reproductive, nervous, musculoskeletal, and excretory).
SC2.4: tracing the pathways of the digestive, circulatory, and excretory systems.
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.
SC3.2: exploring ecological relationships (e.g., competition, niche, feeding relationships, symbiosis).
SD1: Students develop an understanding of Earth's geochemical cycles.
SD1.2: describing their interrelationships (i.e., water cycle, carbon cycle, oxygen cycle).
Cell Energy Cycle
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: describing causes, effects, preventions, and mitigations of human impact on climate.
