SB1: Students develop an understanding of the characteristic properties of matter and the relationship of these properties to their structure and behavior.

SB1.1: predicting the properties of an element (i.e., reactivity, metal, non-metal) using the periodic table and verifying the predictions through experimentation.

 Electron Configuration

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: predicting how an atom can interact with other atoms based on its electron configuration and verifying the results.

 Electron Configuration

SB4: Students develop an understanding of motions, forces, their characteristics and relationships, and natural forces and their effects.

SB4.1: conducting an experiment to demonstrate that when one thing exerts a force on another, an equal amount of force is exerted back on it.

 Fan Cart Physics

SB4.2: conducting an experiment to explore the relationship between magnetic forces and electric forces to show that they can be thought of as different aspects of a single electromagnetic force (e.g., generators and motors).

 Electromagnetic Induction
 Magnetic Induction

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: researching how the processes of natural selection cause changes in species over time.

 Evolution: Mutation and Selection
 Rainfall and Bird Beaks

SC2: Students develop an understanding of the structure, function, behavior, development, life cycles, and diversity of living organisms.

SC2.1: describing the structure-function relationship

 Digestive System

SC2.3: describing the functions and interdependencies of the organs within the immune system and within the endocrine system.

 Digestive System

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: analyze the potential impacts of changes (e.g., climate change, habitat loss/gain, cataclysms, human activities) within an ecosystem.

 Coral Reefs 1 - Abiotic Factors
 Coral Reefs 2 - Biotic Factors

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.

 Plate Tectonics

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.

 Coral Reefs 1 - Abiotic Factors
