PS Physical Sciences

  • 1.PS3 Energy

    • 1.PS3.1 Make observations to determine how sunlight warms Earth's surfaces (sand, soil, rocks, and water).

  • 1.PS4 Waves and Their Application in Technologies for Information Transfer

LS Life Science

  • 1.LS1 From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes

    • 1.LS1.1 Recognize the structure of plants (roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits) and describe the function of the parts (taking in water and air, producing food, making new plants).

    • 1.LS1.2 Illustrate and summarize the life cycle of plants.

    • 1.LS1.3 Analyze and interpret data from observations to describe how changes in the environment cause plants to respond in different ways.

  • 1.LS2 Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics

    • 1.LS2.1 Conduct an experiment to show how plants depend on air, water, minerals from soil, and light to grow and thrive.

    • 1.LS2.2 Obtain and communicate information to classify plants by where they grow (water, land) and the plant's physical characteristics.

    • 1.LS2.3 Recognize how plants depend on their surroundings and other living things to meet their needs in the places they live.

ESS Earth and Space Science

  • 1.ESS1 Earth's Place in the Universe

    • 1.ESS1.1 Use observations or models of the sun, moon, and stars to describe patterns that can be predicted.

    • 1.ESS1.2 Observe natural objects in the sky that can be seen from Earth with the naked eye and recognize that a telescope, used as a tool, can provide greater detail of objects in the sky.

    • 1.ESS1.3 Analyze data to predict patterns between sunrise and sunset, and the change of seasons.

ETS Engineering, Technology, and Applications of Science

  • 1.ETS1 Engineering Design

    • 1.ETS1.1 Solve scientific problems by asking testable questions, making short-term and long-term observations, and gathering information.

  • 1.ETS2 Links Among Engineering, Technology, Science, and Society

    • 1.ETS2.1 Use appropriate tools (magnifying glass, basic balance scale) to make observations and answer testable scientific questions.
