3: Physical Science

3.1: Identify matter as anything that takes up space and has mass. Identify that all matter is made up of parts too small to be seen without magnification. Demonstrate that regardless of how parts of an object are assembled, the weight of the whole object is identical to the sum of the masses of the parts.

Weight and Mass

3.2: Identify ways in which the properties of naturally occurring materials may be changed irreversibly. Observe and explain what causes liquid water to enter different states. Compare the freezing and melting properties of other materials to those of water. Use tables and graphs to show changes.

3.3: Identify heat as a form of energy. Describe that heat (thermal) energy can come from different sources and is produced in different ways.

Energy Conversions

4: Earth and Space Science

4.1: Use models and draw diagrams to show the relationship between the earth's day-night cycle and the rotation of the earth on its axis in a 24-hour period.

Solar System

5: Life Science

5.1: Compare and contrast how plants and animals meet their energy needs. Describe how all animals are directly or indirectly dependent upon plants for their food.
