P.1.a: Students know how to design and build simple series and parallel circuits by using components such as wires, batteries, and bulbs.
P.1.e: Students know electrically charged objects attract or repel each other.
P.1.f: Students know that magnets have two poles (north and south) and that like poles repel each other while unlike poles attract each other.
P.1.g: Students know electrical energy can be converted to heat, light, and motion.
L.2.a: Students know plants are the primary source of matter and energy entering most food chains.
L.2.b: Students know producers and consumers (herbivores, carnivores, omnivores, and decomposers) are related in food chains and food webs and may compete with each other for resources in an ecosystem.
L.2.c: Students know decomposers, including many fungi, insects, and microorganisms, recycle matter from dead plants and animals.
L.3.a: Students know ecosystems can be characterized by their living and nonliving components.
E.4.a: Students know how to differentiate among igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks by referring to their properties and methods of formation (the rock cycle).
E.4.b: Students know how to identify common rock-forming minerals (including quartz, calcite, feldspar, mica, and hornblende) and ore minerals by using a table of diagnostic properties.
E.5.a: Students know some changes in the earth are due to slow processes, such as erosion, and some changes are due to rapid processes, such as landslides, volcanic eruptions, and earthquakes.
I.6.b: Measure and estimate the weight, length, or volume of objects.
I.6.d: Conduct multiple trials to test a prediction and draw conclusions about the relationships between predictions and results.
I.6.e: Construct and interpret graphs from measurements.
I.6.f: Follow a set of written instructions for a scientific investigation.
