1: The student knows and applies scientific concepts and principles to understand the properties, structures, and changes in physical, earth/space, and living systems.

1.1: Understand how properties are used to identify, describe, and categorize substances, materials, and objects and how characteristics are used to categorize living things.

1.1.2: Understand the relative position and motion of objects.

1.1.2.a: Describe the motion of an object in terms of distance, time, and direction as the object travels in a straight line.

Measuring Motion

1.2: Understand how components, structures, organizations, and interconnections describe systems.

1.2.4: Understand that Earth's system includes a mostly solid interior, landforms, bodies of water, and an atmosphere.

1.2.4.b: Identify and describe various landmasses, bodies of water, and landforms (e.g., illustrate continents, oceans, seas, rivers, mountains, plains from a globe and a map).

Reading Topographic Maps

1.3: Understand how interactions within and among systems cause changes in matter and energy.

1.3.2: Understand that forces can change the motion of common objects.

1.3.2.a: Investigate and report how a larger force acting on an object causes a greater change in motion of that object, 2nd Law of Motion (e.g., a 2-Newton pull causes a toy car to speed up more than a 1-Newton force).

Force and Fan Carts

1.3.3: Understand that a substance remains the same substance when changing state. Understand that two or more substances can react to become new substances.

1.3.3.b: Describe how two different substances can form a simple chemical reaction to produce new substances (e.g., baking soda and vinegar react to form a gas).

Chemical Changes

1.3.6: Understand weather indicators and understand how water cycles through the atmosphere.

1.3.6.a: Describe the effects of water cycling through the land, oceans, and atmosphere (e.g., clouds, rain, snow, hail, rivers).

Water Cycle

1.3.8: Understand that living things need constant energy and matter.

1.3.8.a: Explain how plants and animals obtain food (e.g., plants make food from air, water, sunlight, mineral nutrients; animals obtain food from other living things).

Cell Energy Cycle

1.3.10: Understand that that an organism's ability to survive is influenced by the organism's behavior and the ecosystem in which it lives.

1.3.10.a: Describe how an organism's ability to survive is affected by a change in an ecosystem (e.g., the loss of one organism in a food chain affects all other organisms in that food chain).

Rabbit Population by Season

1.3.10.b: Describe the path of substances (i.e., air, water, mineral nutrients) through a food chain.
