P: Physical Science

P.EN: Develop an understanding that there are many forms of energy (such as heat, light, sound, and electrical) and that energy is transferable by convection, conduction, or radiation. Understand energy can be in motion, called kinetic; or it can be stored, called potential. Develop an understanding that as temperature increases, more energy is added to a system. Understand nuclear reactions in the sun produce light and heat for the Earth.

P.EN.06.11: Identify kinetic or potential energy in everyday situations (for example: stretched rubber band, objects in motion, ball on a hill, food energy).

P.CM: Develop an understanding of changes in the state of matter in terms of heating and cooling, and in terms of arrangement and relative motion of atoms and molecules. Understand the differences between physical and chemical changes. Develop an understanding of the conservation of mass. Develop an understanding of products and reactants in a chemical change.

P.CM.06.11: Describe and illustrate changes in state, in terms of the arrangement and relative motion of the atoms or molecules.

 Phases of Water

L: Life Science

L.OL: Develop an understanding that plants and animals (including humans) have basic requirements for maintaining life which include the need for air, water and a source of energy. Understand that all life forms can be classified as producers, consumers, or decomposers as they are all part of a global food chain where food/energy is supplied by plants which need light to produce food/energy. Develop an understanding that plants and animals can be classified by observable traits and physical characteristics. Understand that all living organisms are composed of cells and they exhibit cell growth and division. Understand that all plants and animals have a definite life cycle, body parts, and systems to perform specific life functions.

L.OL.06.51: Classify organisms (producers, consumers, and decomposers) based on their source of energy for growth and development.

 Food Chain
 Forest Ecosystem

L.OL.06.52: Distinguish between the ways in which consumers and decomposers obtain energy.

 Forest Ecosystem

L.EC: Develop an understanding of the interdependence of the variety of populations, communities and ecosystems, including those in the Great Lakes region. Develop an understanding of different types of interdependence and that biotic (living) and abiotic (non-living) factors affect the balance of an ecosystem. Understand that all organisms cause changes, some detrimental and others beneficial, in the environment where they live.

L.EC.06.21: Describe common patterns of relationships between and among populations (competition, parasitism, symbiosis, predator/prey).

 Food Chain
 Prairie Ecosystem

L.EC.06.23: Predict how changes in one population might affect other populations based upon their relationships in the food web.

E: Earth Science

E.SE: Develop an understanding of the properties of earth materials and how those properties make materials useful. Understand gradual and rapid changes in earth materials and features of the surface of Earth. Understand magnetic properties of Earth.

E.SE.06.41: Compare and contrast the formation of rock types (igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary) and demonstrate the similarities and differences using the rock cycle model.

 Rock Cycle

E.SE.06.51: Explain plate tectonic movement and how the lithospheric plates move centimeters each year.

 Plate Tectonics

E.SE.06.52: Demonstrate how major geological events (earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, mountain building) result from these plate motions.
