1: Earth and Space Sciences

1.B: Summarize the processes that shape Earth's surface and describe evidence of those processes.

1.B.9: Identify and describe how freezing, thawing and plant growth reshape the land surface by causing the weathering of rock.

Rock Cycle

1.B.10: Describe evidence of changes on Earth's surface in terms of slow processes (e.g., erosion, weathering, mountain building, deposition) and rapid processes (e.g. volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, landslides).

Rock Cycle

1.D: Analyze weather and changes that occur over a period of time.

1.D.3: Investigate how water changes from one state to another (e.g., freezing, melting, condensation, evaporation).

Phases of Water

2: Life Sciences

2.A: Differentiate between the life cycles of different plants and animals.

2.A.1: Compare the life cycles of different plants including germination, maturity, reproduction and death.

Flower Pollination

2.A.5: Describe how organisms interact with one another in various ways (e.g., many plants depend on animals for carrying pollen or dispersing seeds).

Forest Ecosystem
Plants and Snails

2.B: Analyze plant and animal structures and functions needed for survival and describe the flow of energy through a system that all organisms use to survive.

2.B.2: Relate plant structures to their specific functions (e.g., growth, survival and reproduction).

Flower Pollination

3: Physical Sciences

3.A: Compare the characteristics of simple physical and chemical changes.

3.A.1: Identify characteristics of a simple physical change (e.g., heating or cooling can change water from one state to another and the change is reversible).

Phases of Water

3.B: Identify and describe the physical properties of matter in its various states.

3.B.3: Describe objects by the properties of the materials from which they are made and that these properties can be used to separate or sort a group of objects (e.g., paper, glass, plastic, metal).

Circuit Builder
Mineral Identification

3.B.4: Explain that matter has different states (e.g., solid, liquid and gas) and that each state has distinct physical properties.
