Grade Level Expectations
1.1.1: Understand how to use physical and chemical properties to sort and identify substances.
1.1.1.a: Identify, categorize, describe, and sort substances using physical and/or chemical properties (i.e., boiling point, density, freezing point, mass, acidity [pH], solubility, magnetism).
1.1.3: Understand sound waves, water waves, and light waves using wave properties, including amplitude, wavelength, and speed. Understand wave behaviors, including reflection, refraction, transmission, and absorption.
1.1.3.b: Describe the behavior of sound and water waves as the waves are reflected and/or absorbed by a substance.
1.1.4: Understand that energy is a property of matter, objects, and systems and comes in many forms (i.e., heat [thermal] energy, sound energy, light energy, electrical energy, kinetic energy, potential energy, and chemical energy).
1.1.4.a: Describe the forms of energy present in matter, objects, and systems (i.e., heat [thermal] energy, sound energy, light energy, electrical energy, kinetic energy, potential energy, and chemical energy).
1.2.2: Understand how various factors affect energy transfers and that energy can be transformed from one form of energy to another.
1.2.2.a: Describe and determine the factors that affect heat energy transfer (e.g., properties of substances/ materials [conductors, insulators], distance, direction, position).
1.2.2.b: Describe how an increase in one type of energy of an object or system results in a decrease in other types of energy within that object or system (e.g., a falling object’s potential energy decreases while its kinetic energy increases).
1.2.2.c: Describe how waves transfer energy (e.g., light waves transfer energy from sun to Earth; air transfers an object’s vibrations from one place to another as sound).
1.2.3: Understand that all matter is made of particles called atoms and that atoms may combine to form molecules and that atoms and molecules can form mixtures.
1.2.3.b: Describe that elements are made of one kind of atom.
1.2.5: Understand the structure of the Solar System.
1.2.5.a: Describe how the Earth orbits the Sun and the Moon orbits the Earth.
1.2.5.b: Describe the Sun (i.e., a medium-size star, the largest body in our solar system, major source of energy for phenomena on Earth's surface).
1.2.5.c: Describe how planets, asteroids, and comets orbit the Sun.
1.2.6: Understand that specialized cells within multicellular organisms form different kinds of tissues, organs, and organ systems to carry out life functions.
1.2.6.a: Describe and identify how plant and animal cells are similar and different in structure and function.
1.2.6.b: Describe basic cell functions (i.e., extracting energy from food, using energy, and getting rid of waste).
1.2.7: Understand that organisms pass on genetic information in their life cycle and that an organism's characteristics are determined by both genetic and environmental influences.
1.2.7.a: Explain that organisms require a set of instructions for specifying their traits (i.e., heredity is the passage of these instructions from one generation to another).
1.2.7.b: Describe that genes inherited from parents are combined in their offspring to produce a new combination of characteristics.
1.2.8: Understand human life functions and the interconnecting organ systems necessary to maintain human life.
1.2.8.a: Describe the components and functions of the organ systems (i.e., circulatory, digestive, reproductive, excretory, nervous-sensory [brain, nerves, spinal cord, hearing, vision], respiratory, and muscular-skeletal systems).
1.3.7: Understand the effects of the regular and predictable motions of planets and moons in the Solar System.
1.3.7.a: Describe the causes of seasonal changes on Earth and other planets (i.e., Earth’s tilt causes different parts of Earth to point toward the Sun at different times of the year).
1.3.7.b: Describe the effects of the position of the Sun and Moon on Earth phenomena (i.e., Moon phases, solar and lunar eclipses, shadows on Earth, tides).
