Standards and Objectives
SC.6.4: Students will: demonstrate knowledge, understanding and applications of scientific facts, concepts, principles, theories and models as delineated in the objectives, demonstrate an understanding of the interrelationships among physics, chemistry, biology and the earth and space sciences, and apply knowledge, understanding and skills of science subject matter/concepts to daily life experiences.
SC.6.4.1: demonstrate an understanding of the interconnections of biological, earth and space and physical science concepts.
SC.6.4.2: describe the interactions of various cycles that provide energy through decomposition, photosynthesis, respiration, transpiration in the food web; nitrogen cycle.
SC.6.4.3: classify living organisms according to their structure and functions.
SC.6.4.6: construct models of plant and animal cells which show the basic parts (e.g., cytoplasm, cell wall, cell membrane, nucleus, chloroplasts).
SC.6.4.8: demonstrate changes in populations of organisms due to limiting environmental factors (e.g., food supply, predators, disease, habitat).
SC.6.4.9: analyze the ecological consequences of human interactions with the environment (e.g., renewable and non-renewable resources).
SC.6.4.10: classify and investigate properties and processes (changes) as either physical or chemical.
SC.6.4.13: use indicators to identify substances as acidic, basic or neutral.
SC.6.4.14: identify the symbols of elements.
SC.6.4.15: use the periodic table to identify elements as solids, liquids and gases, metals or nonmetals.
SC.6.4.18: identify factors affecting reflection and refraction (e.g., nature of surfaces, color, density of medium).
SC.6.4.19: explain absorption and reflection of light by different objects of various colors and textures (e.g., transparent, translucent, opaque, different colors).
SC.6.4.20: describe the flow of heat between objects (e.g., hot air rises, absorption and release of heat by metals).
SC.6.4.21: diagram simple parallel and series circuits (e.g., bulbs, battery, wires, switch).
SC.6.4.22: interpret the relationship of mass to gravitational force (e.g., larger the mass the larger the gravitational force, the closer the objects the stronger the force).
SC.6.4.23: examine simple machines and the forces involved; apply the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on motion of objects.
SC.6.4.26: describe and demonstrate the forces and results of plate tectonics.
SC.6.4.27: describe changes in the rock record due to geologic and physical events over time. (e.g., rock cycle as it relates to plate tectonics.).
SC.6.4.28: recognize the phases of the Moon.
SC.6.4.29: investigate models of Earth-Moon-Sun relationships (e.g., gravity, time, tides).
SC.6.4.30: compare the Earth’s tilt and revolution to the seasonal changes.
