Science Processes and Inquiry

Physical Science

  • 1 Describe characteristics of objects based on physical qualities such as size, shape, color, mass, temperature, and texture. Energy can produce changes in properties of objects such as changes in temperature. The student will engage in investigations that integrate the process standards and lead to the discovery of the following objectives:

    • 1 Matter has physical properties that can be used for identification (e.g., color, texture, shape).

    • 2 Physical properties of objects can be observed, described, and measured using tools such as simple microscopes, gram spring scales, metric rulers, metric balances, and Celsius thermometers.

    • 3 Energy can be transferred in many ways (e.g., energy from the Sun to air, water, and metal).

    • 4 Energy can be classified as either potential or kinetic.

Life Science

  • 2 Organisms within an ecosystem are dependent on one another and the environment. The student will engage in investigations that integrate the process standards and lead to the discovery of the following objectives:

    • 1 Organisms in an ecosystem depend on each other for food, shelter, and reproduction.

      • a Ecosystems include food chains and food webs.

      • b Relationships exist between consumers, producers, and decomposers within an ecosystem.

      • c Predators and prey relationships affect populations in an ecosystem.

    • 2 Changes in environmental conditions due to human interactions or natural phenomena can affect the survival of individual organisms and/or entire species.

      • a Earth's resources can be natural (non-renewable) or man-made (renewable).

      • b The practices of recycling, reusing, and reducing help to conserve Earth's limited resources.

Earth/Space Science

  • 3 Interaction between air, water, rock/soil, and all living things. The student will engage in investigations that integrate the process standards and lead to the discovery of the following objectives:

    • 1 Soil consists of weathered rocks and decomposed organic material from dead plants, animals, and bacteria. Soils are often found in layers.

    • 2 Weather exhibits daily and seasonal patterns (i.e., air temperature, basic cloud types – cumulus, cirrus, stratus, and nimbus, wind direction, wind speed, humidity, precipitation).

    • 3 Earth is the third planet from the Sun in a system that includes the moon, the Sun, and seven other planets.

      • a Most objects in the solar system are in regular and predictable motion (e.g., phases of the moon).

      • b Objects in the Solar System have individual characteristics (e.g., distance from Sun, number of moons, temperature of object).

      • c The Earth rotates on its axis while making revolutions around the Sun.
