I.1.a: Describe changes in the appearance of the moon during a month.
I.1.b: Identify the pattern of change in the moon’s appearance.
I.1.d: Design an investigation, construct a chart, and collect data depicting the phases of the moon.
I.2.a: Identify the difference between the motion of an object rotating on its axis and an object revolving in orbit.

II.1.a: Describe the yearly revolution (orbit) of Earth around the sun.
II.1.b: Explain that Earth's axis is tilted relative to its yearly orbit around the sun.
II.1.c: Investigate the relationship between the amount of heat absorbed and the angle to the light source.
II.2.a: Compare Earth’s position in relationship to the sun during each season.
II.2.b: Compare the hours of daylight and illustrate the angle that the sun's rays strikes the surface of Earth during summer, fall, winter, and spring in the Northern Hemisphere.
II.2.c: Use collected data to compare patterns relating to seasonal daylight changes.
II.2.d: Use a drawing and/or model to explain that changes in the angle at which light from the sun strikes Earth, and the length of daylight, determine seasonal differences in the amount of energy received.
II.2.e: Use a model to explain why the seasons are reversed in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.

VI.3.b: Explain the relationship of the size and shape of a vibrating object to the pitch of the sound produced.
VI.3.c: Relate the volume of a sound to the amount of energy used to create the vibration of the object producing the sound.
