2: Scientific investigation and reasoning. The student uses scientific practices during laboratory and outdoor investigations.
2.A: The student is expected to: plan and implement descriptive investigations, including asking well defined questions, making inferences, and selecting and using appropriate equipment or technology to answer his/her questions;
2.B: The student is expected to: collect and record data by observing and measuring, using the metric system, and using descriptive words and numerals such as labeled drawings, writing, and concept maps;
2.C: The student is expected to: construct simple tables, charts, bar graphs, and maps using tools and current technology to organize, examine, and evaluate data;
Building Topographic Maps
2.D: The student is expected to: analyze data and interpret patterns to construct reasonable explanations from data that can be observed and measured;
Comparing Climates (Customary)
Observing Weather (Customary)
4: Scientific investigation and reasoning. The student knows how to use a variety of tools, materials, equipment, and models to conduct science inquiry.
4.A: The student is expected to: collect, record, and analyze information using tools, including calculators, microscopes, cameras, computers, hand lenses, metric rulers, Celsius thermometers, mirrors, spring scales, balances, graduated cylinders, beakers, hot plates, meter sticks, magnets, collecting nets, and notebooks; timing devices; and materials to support observation of habitats of organisms such as terrariums and aquariums.
Weight and Mass
5: Matter and energy. The student knows that matter has measurable physical properties and those properties determine how matter is classified, changed, and used.
5.A: The student is expected to: measure, compare, and contrast physical properties of matter, including mass, volume, states (solid, liquid, gas), temperature, magnetism, and the ability to sink or float; and
Phases of Water
Weight and Mass
6: Force, motion, and energy. The student knows that energy exists in many forms and can be observed in cycles, patterns, and systems.
6.A: The student is expected to: differentiate among forms of energy, including mechanical, sound, electrical, light, and thermal;
6.B: The student is expected to: differentiate between conductors and insulators of thermal and electrical energy;
6.C: The student is expected to: demonstrate that electricity travels in a closed path, creating an electrical circuit; and
7: Earth and space. The students know that Earth consists of useful resources and its surface is constantly changing.
7.B: The student is expected to: observe and identify slow changes to Earth's surface caused by weathering, erosion, and deposition from water, wind, and ice; and
8: Earth and space. The student knows that there are recognizable patterns in the natural world and among the Sun, Earth, and Moon system.
8.A: The student is expected to: measure, record, and predict changes in weather;
Observing Weather (Customary)
Observing Weather (Metric)
8.B: The student is expected to: describe and illustrate the continuous movement of water above and on the surface of Earth through the water cycle and explain the role of the Sun as a major source of energy in this process; and
8.C: The student is expected to: collect and analyze data to identify sequences and predict patterns of change in shadows, seasons, and the observable appearance of the Moon over time.
Phases of the Moon
9: Organisms and environments. The student knows and understands that living organisms within an ecosystem interact with one another and with their environment.
9.A: The student is expected to: investigate that most producers need sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide to make their own food, while consumers are dependent on other organisms for food; and
9.B: The student is expected to: describe the flow of energy through food webs, beginning with the Sun, and predict how changes in the ecosystem affect the food web.
10: Organisms and environments. The student knows that organisms undergo similar life processes and have structures and behaviors that help them survive within their environment.
10.B: The student is expected to: explore and describe examples of traits that are inherited from parents to offspring such as eye color and shapes of leaves and behaviors that are learned such as reading a book and a wolf pack teaching their pups to hunt effectively; and
10.C: The student is expected to: explore, illustrate, and compare life cycles in living organisms such as beetles, crickets, radishes, or lima beans.
