P: Physical Sciences

P.1: Energy and matter have multiple forms and can be changed from one form to another. As a basis for understanding this concept:

P.1.a: Students know energy comes from the Sun to Earth in the form of light.

 Energy Conversions
 Energy Conversions

P.1.e: Students know matter has three forms: solid, liquid, and gas.

 Phases of Water
 Phases of Water

P.1.f: Students know evaporation and melting are changes that occur when the objects are heated.

L: Life Sciences

L.3: Adaptations in physical structure or behavior may improve an organism's chance for survival. As a basis for understanding this concept:

L.3.a: Students know plants and animals have structures that serve different functions in growth, survival, and reproduction.

 Flower Pollination
 Flower Pollination

L.3.c: Students know living things cause changes in the environment in which they live: some of these changes are detrimental to the organism or other organisms, and some are beneficial.

E: Earth Sciences

E.4: Objects in the sky move in regular and predictable patterns. As a basis for under-standing this concept:

E.4.d: Students know that Earth is one of several planets that orbit the Sun and that the Moon orbits Earth.

 Gravity Pitch
 Gravity Pitch

E.4.e: Students know the position of the Sun in the sky changes during the course of the day and from season to season.

 Seasons: Earth, Moon, and Sun
 Seasons: Earth, Moon, and Sun

I: Investigation and Experimentation

I.5: Scientific progress is made by asking meaningful questions and conducting careful investigations. As a basis for understanding this concept and addressing the content in the other three strands, students should develop their own questions and perform investigations. Students will:

I.5.d: Predict the outcome of a simple investigation and compare the result with the prediction.

 Pendulum Clock

I.5.e: Collect data in an investigation and analyze those data to develop a logical conclusion.
