SC-06-1: Physical Science

SC-06-1.1: Structure and Transformation of Matter

SC-06-1.1.2: Students will identify and describe evidence of chemical and physical changes in matter.

SC-06-1.1.2.a: In chemical reactions, the total mass is conserved. Substances are often classified into groups if they react in similar ways. The patterns that allow classification can be used to infer or understand real life applications for those substances.

Chemical Equations

SC-06-1.2: Motion and Forces

SC-06-1.2.1: Students will describe friction and make inferences about its effects on the motion of an object.

SC-06-1.2.1.a: When an unbalanced force (friction) acts on an object, the change in speed or direction depends on the size and direction of the force.

SC-06-2: Earth/Space Science

SC-06-2.3.1: Students will explain and predict phenomena (e.g., day, year, moon phases, eclipses) based on models/representations or data related to the motion of objects in the solar system (e.g., earth, sun, moon).

SC-06-2.3.1.a: Observations and investigations of patterns indicate that most objects in the solar system are in regular and predictable motion. Evaluation of this data explains such phenomena as the day, the year, phases of the moon and eclipses.

SC-06-2.3.2: Students will explain cause and effect relationships in the Rock cycle.

SC-06-2.3.2.a: Materials found in the lithosphere and mantle are changed in a continuous process called the rock cycle, which can be investigated using a variety of models.

SC-06-2.3.3: Students will compare constructive and destructive forces on Earth in order to make predictions about the nature of landforms.

SC-06-2.3.3.a: Landforms are a result of a combination of constructive and destructive forces. Collection and analysis of data indicates that constructive forces include crustal deformation, faulting, volcanic eruption and deposition of sediment, while destructive forces include weathering and erosion.

Plate Tectonics

SC-06-3: Biological Science

SC-06-3.4.1: Students will describe the relationship between cells, tissues and organs in order to explain their function in multicellular organisms.

SC-06-3.4.1.a: Specialized cells perform specialized functions in multicellular organisms. Groups of specialized cells cooperate to form tissues. Different tissues are, in turn, grouped together to form larger functional units called organs. Examination of cells, tissues and organs reveals that each type has a distinct structure and set of functions that serve the organism.

Digestive System

SC-06-3.5.1: Students will explain that biological change over time accounts for the diversity of species developed through gradual processes over many generations.

SC-06-3.5.1.a: Biological adaptations include changes in structures, behaviors, or physiology that enhance survival and reproductive success in a particular environment.

Natural Selection
Rainfall and Bird Beaks

SC-06-4: Unifying Concepts

SC-06-4.6.2: Students will describe:

SC-06-4.6.2.b: the connection/relationship between the Sun?s energy and seasons.

SC-06-4.6.2.b.1: The Sun is the major source of energy for Earth. The water cycle, winds, ocean currents and growth of plants are affected by the Sun?s energy. Seasons result from variations in the amount of the Sun?s energy hitting Earth?s surface.

Water Cycle

SC-06-4.6.3: Students will understand that, on its own, heat travels only from higher temperature object/region to lower temperature object or region. Heat will continue to flow in this manner until the objects reach the same temperature. For example, a cup of hot water will continue to cool down until it comes to the same temperature as the surrounding area. Usually when heat is transferred to or from an object, the temperature changes. The temperature increases if heat is added and the temperature decreases if the heat is removed.

Conduction and Convection

Heat Transfer by Conduction

SC-06-4.7.1: Students will describe the consequences of change in one or more abiotic factors on a population within an ecosystem.

SC-06-4.7.1.a: The number of organisms an ecosystem can support depends on the resources available and abiotic factors (e.g., quantity of light and water, range of temperatures, soil composition).
