2: Students know and understand common properties, forms, and changes in matter and energy.
2.1: objects have physical properties that can be measured (for example: length, mass, volume and temperature)
Weight and Mass
2.2: measurable physical properties can be compared before and after effecting a change to verify a change has occurred and used to predict its outcome in similar circumstances
2.4: matter exists in physical states (solid, liquid, gas) and can change from one state to another
Phases of Water
2.5: there are different types and sources of energy (for example: light, heat, motion)
2.6: electricity in circuits can produce light, heat, sound and magnetic effects
2.7: there are different types of forces (for example: gravity and magnetism)
2.8: changes in speed or direction of motion are caused by forces
Force and Fan Carts
3: Students know and understand the characteristics and structure of living things, the processes of life, and how living things interact with each other and their environment.
3.1: each plant or animal has different structures and behaviors that serve different functions in growth, survival, and reproduction
3.2: green plants need energy from sunlight and various raw materials to live, and animals consume plants and other organisms to live
3.3: human body systems have basic structures, functions and needs (for example: digestive, respiratory, circulatory, skeletal, muscular)
3.4: there is interaction and interdependence between and among nonliving and living components of ecosystems (for example: food webs, symbiotic and parasitic relationships, dependence on rainfall, pollination)
3.7: there are similarities and differences in appearance among individuals of the same population (for example: size, color, shape)
4: Students know and understand the processes and interactions of Earth's systems and the structure and dynamics of Earth and other objects in space.
4.6: water exists on Earth in different states (solid, liquid, gas) and changes from one state to another (for example: evaporation, condensation and precipitation)
Phases of Water
4.7: there are basic components of the solar system (for example: Sun, planets, moons)
4.8: the Earth and Sun provide a diversity of resources (for example: soils, fuels, minerals, medicines and food)
