3: Physical Science

3.3: Explain that objects move at different rates, dependent on the distance traveled and the amount of time it took to travel a given distance. Demonstrate that changes in speed are caused by forces: the greater the force exerted on a particular object, the greater the change in speed.

Force and Fan Carts
Measuring Motion

3.4: Demonstrate how a warmer object transfers heat to a cooler one by contact or by radiation at a distance, so that the cooler object gets warmer and the warmer object gets cooler. Demonstrate that when heat is made to flow into an object by putting it in contact with a hotter object, its temperature increases.

Conduction and Convection
Heat Absorption

4: Earth and Space Science

4.2: Describe how the appearance of the sky is affected by the daily rotation of the earth on its axis. Draw diagrams depicting the motion of the earth around the sun in a year?s time. Describe the cycle of the moon, including how the shape of the moon changes. Observe and explain the uses of telescopes.

Phases of the Moon

5: Life Science

5.1: Identify that living organisms are composed of cells and that a single cell is the smallest unit of life. Describe similarities and differences between cells in plants and animals. Observe and explain that cells can come together to form tissues and that tissues can form organs.

Forest Ecosystem

5.2: Describe that the features of each organism are inherited from its parents. Explain why small differences in features between parents and off spring can result in descendents generations later who are quite different from their ancestors. Explain why individual organisms may have an advantage in surviving and reproducing in a particular environment due to certain features.
