I: Students will understand that water changes state as it moves through the water cycle.

I.1: Describe the relationship between heat energy, evaporation and condensation of water on Earth.

I.1.b: Identify the sun as the source of energy that evaporates water from the surface of Earth.

Water Cycle

I.1.d: Investigate and record temperature data to show the effects of heat energy on changing the states of water.

Phases of Water

I.2: Describe the water cycle.

I.2.a: Locate examples of evaporation and condensation in the water cycle (e.g., water evaporates when heated and clouds or dew forms when vapor is cooled).

Water Cycle

I.2.b: Describe the processes of evaporation, condensation, and precipitation as they relate to the water cycle.

Water Cycle

I.2.c: Identify locations that hold water as it passes through the water cycle (e.g., oceans, atmosphere, fresh surface water, snow, ice, and ground water).

Water Cycle

I.2.d: Construct a model or diagram to show how water continuously moves through the water cycle over time.

Water Cycle

I.2.e: Describe how the water cycle relates to the water supply in your community.

Water Cycle

III: Students will understand the basic properties of rocks, the processes involved in the formation of soils, and the needs of plants provided by soil.

III.3: Observe the basic components of soil and relate the components to plant growth.

III.3.e: Research and investigate ways to provide mineral nutrients for plants to grow without soil (e.g., grow plants in wet towels, grow plants in wet gravel, grow plants in water).

Growing Plants

V: Students will understand the physical characteristics of Utah's wetlands, forests, and deserts and identify common organisms for each environment.

V.1: Describe the physical characteristics of Utah's wetlands, forests, and deserts.

V.1.e: Create models of wetlands, forests, and deserts.

Forest Ecosystem

V.2: Describe the common plants and animals found in Utah environments and how these organisms have adapted to the environment in which they live.

V.2.a: Identify common plants and animals that inhabit Utah's forests, wetlands, and deserts.

Forest Ecosystem

V.2.c: Describe some of the interactions between animals and plants of a given environment (e.g., woodpecker eats insects that live on trees of a forest, brine shrimp of the Great Salt Lake eat algae and birds feed on brine shrimp).
