Plants and Snails
S:LS2:4:3.2: Describe ways plants and animals depend on each other (e.g., shelter, nesting, food).
S:LS3:4:1.3: Using information (data or scenario), explain how changes in the environment can cause organisms to respond (e.g., survive there and reproduce, move away, die).
S:LS4:4:1.2: Recognize that an individual organism's behavior is influenced by external cues, such as seasonal change; and describe how an organism might react, such as migrating or hibernating.
S:LS4:4:3: Human Identity
S:LS4:4:3.2: Distinguish between characteristics of humans that are inherited from parents (i.e., hair color, height, skin color, eye color) and others that are learned (e.g., riding a bike, singing a song, playing a game, reading).
S:PS1:4:2.1: Recognize that substances can be classified by observable properties.
S:PS1:4:2.2: Explain that some materials can exist in different states; and describe the distinct physical properties of each state of matter.
Phases of Water
S:PS1:4:2.3: Explain how some materials, such as water, can change from one state to another by heating or cooling.
Phases of Water
S:PS1:4:2.4: Make a prediction about what might happen to the state of common materials when heated or cooled; or categorize materials as solid, liquid, or gas.
Phases of Water
S:PS1:4:2.5: Collect and organize data about physical properties in order to classify objects or draw conclusions about objects and their characteristic properties (e.g., temperature, color, size, shape, weight, texture, flexibility).
S:PS2:4:1.1: Recognize that energy has the ability to create change.
Phases of Water
S:PS2:4:3.1: Identify the various forms of energy, such as electrical, light, heat, sound.
S:PS2:4:3.3: Identify and describe the organization of a simple circuit.
S:PS2:4:3.4: Differentiate between objects and materials that conduct electricity and those that are insulators of electricity.
S:PS2:4:3.5: Explain that light travels in a straight line until it strikes an object; and describe how it can be reflected by a mirror, bent by a lens, or absorbed by the object.
S:PS2:4:3.7: Use observations of light in relation to other objects/substances to describe the properties of light (i.e., can be reflected, refracted, or absorbed).
S:PS2:4:3.8: Experiment, observe, or predict how heat might move from one object to another.
S:PS3:4:1.1: Recognize that magnets attract certain kinds of other materials; and classify objects by those magnets will attract and those they will not.
S:PS3:4:1.2: Recognize that magnets attract and repel each other.
S:PS3:4:1.3: Explain that electrically charged material pulls on all other materials and can attract or repel other charged materials.
S:PS3:4:1.4: Recognize that the Earth's gravitational force pulls any object toward it.
S:PS3:4:1.5: Use observations of magnets in relation to other objects to describe the properties of magnetism (i.e., attract or repel certain objects or has no effect).
S:PS3:4:2.1: Use data to predict how a change in force (greater/less) might affect the position, direction of motion, or speed of an object (e.g., ramps and balls).
