Standard K.L.2 The student will demonstrate an understanding of organisms found in the environment and how these organisms depend on the environment to meet those needs.
Indicator K.L.2A.2 Conduct structured investigations to determine what plants need to live and grow (including water and light).
Standard K.E.3 The student will demonstrate an understanding of daily and seasonal weather patterns.
K.E.3A. Conceptual Understanding: Weather is a combination of sunlight, wind, snow or rain, and temperature in a particular region at a particular time. Scientists measure weather conditions to describe and record the weather and to notice patterns over time. Plants and animals (including humans) respond to different weather conditions in different ways.
Indicator K.E.3A.1 Analyze and interpret local weather condition data (including precipitation, wind, temperature, and cloud cover) to describe weather patterns that occur from day to day, using simple graphs and pictorial weather symbols.
Standard 1.E.3 The student will demonstrate an understanding of the patterns of the Sun and the Moon and the Sun’s effect on earth.
Indicator 1.E.3A.2 Use data from personal observations to describe, predict, and develop models to exemplify how the appearance of the moon changes over time in a predictable pattern.
Standard 2.E.2 The student will demonstrate an understanding of the daily and seasonal weather patterns.
Indicator 2.E.2A.4 Obtain and communicate information about severe weather conditions to explain why certain safety precautions are necessary.
Standard 2.P.4 The student will demonstrate an understanding of the effects of pushes, pulls, and friction on the motion of objects.
Indicator 2.P.4A.2 Develop and use models to exemplify the effects of pushing and pulling on an object.
Standard 3.E.4 The student will demonstrate an understanding of the composition of Earth and the processes that shape features of Earth’s surface.
Indicator 3.E.4A.3 Obtain and communicate information to exemplify how humans obtain, use, and protect renewable and nonrenewable Earth Resources.
Standard 3.P.2 The student will demonstrate an understanding of the properties used to classify matter and how heat energy can change matter from one state to another.
Indicator 3.P.2A.2 Construct explanations using observations and measurements to describe how matter can be classified as a solid, liquid, or gas.
