Grade Level Expectations
1.1.2: Understand the positions, relative speeds, and changes in speed of objects.
1.1.2.b: Describe an object’s motion as speeding up, slowing down, or moving with constant speed using models, numbers, words, diagrams, and graphs.
1.1.2.c: Measure and describe the speed of an object relative to the speed of another object.
1.1.5: Understand how to classify rocks, soils, air, and water into groups based on their chemical and physical properties.
1.1.5.a: Describe properties of minerals and rocks that give evidence of how they were formed (e.g., crystal size and arrangement, texture, luster, cleavage, hardness, layering, reaction to acid).
1.1.5.b: Describe properties of soils that give evidence of how the soils were formed (e.g., chemical composition such as acidic, types of particles, particle size, organic materials, layering).
1.2.1: Analyze how the parts of a system interconnect and influence each other.
1.2.1.a: Describe the flow of matter and energy through a system (i.e., energy and matter inputs, outputs, transfers, transformations).
1.2.4: Understand the components and interconnections of Earth's systems.
1.2.4.a: Describe the components of the Earth’s systems (i.e., the core, the mantle, oceanic and crustal plates, landforms, the hydrosphere and atmosphere).
1.2.4.b: Describe the interactions among the components of Earth’s systems (i.e., the core, the mantle, oceanic and crustal plates, landforms, the hydrosphere and atmosphere).
1.2.4.c: Describe magma (i.e., magma comes from Earth's mantle and cools to form rocks).
1.3.1: Understand factors that affect the strength and direction of forces.
1.3.1.c: Measure and describe how a simple machine can change the strength and/or direction of a force (i.e., levers and pulleys).
1.3.2: Understand how balanced and unbalanced forces can change the motion of objects.
1.3.2.a: Describe how an unbalanced force changes the speed and/or direction of motion of different objects moving along a straight line, 2nd Law of Motion (e.g., a larger unbalanced force is needed to equally change the motion of more massive objects).
1.3.2.b: Describe how frictional forces act to stop the motion of objects.
1.3.3: Understand that matter is conserved during physical and chemical changes.
1.3.3.a: Observe and describe evidence of physical and chemical changes of matter (e.g., change of state, size, shape, temperature, color, gas production, solid formation, light).
1.3.4: Understand the processes that continually change the surface of the Earth.
1.3.4.c: Describe how constructive processes change landforms (e.g., crustal deformation, volcanic eruption, deposition of sediment).
1.3.4.e: Describe the processes involved in the rock cycle (e.g., magma cools into igneous rocks; rocks are eroded and deposited as sediments; sediments solidify into sedimentary rocks; rocks can be changed by heat and pressure to form metamorphic rocks).
1.3.6: Analyze the relationship between weather and climate and how ocean currents and global atmospheric circulation affect weather and climate.
1.3.6.b: Explain the effect of the water cycle on weather (e.g., cloud formation, storms).
1.3.8: Understand how individual organisms, including cells, obtain matter and energy for life processes.
1.3.8.a: Describe the different sources of matter and energy required for life processes in plants and animals (e.g., seeds have energy for germination; green plants need light for energy).
1.3.8.c: Describe how systems interact to distribute materials and eliminate wastes produced by life processes.
1.3.8.d: Describe that both plants and animals extract energy from food, but plants produce their own food from light, air, water, and mineral nutrients, while animals consume energy-rich foods.
1.3.9: Understand how the theory of biological evolution accounts for species diversity, adaptation, natural selection, extinction, and change in species over time.
1.3.9.b: Describe how individual organisms with certain traits are more likely than others to survive and have offspring (i.e., natural selection, adaptation).
1.3.9.c: Describe how biological evolution accounts for the diversity of species developed through gradual processes over many generations.
1.3.10: Understand how organisms in ecosystems interact with and respond to their environment and other organisms.
1.3.10.a: Describe how energy flows through a food chain or web.
1.3.10.b: Describe how substances such as air, water, and mineral nutrients are continually cycled in ecosystems.
1.3.10.c: Explain the role of an organism in an ecosystem (e.g., predator, prey, consumer, producer, decomposer, scavenger, carnivore, herbivore, omnivore).
1.3.10.d: Describe how a population of an organism responds to a change in its environment.
