2: Students know and understand common properties, forms, and changes in matter and energy.

2.1: objects have physical properties that can be measured (for example: length, mass, volume and temperature)

Density Experiment: Slice and Dice
Measuring Volume
Mineral Identification
Weight and Mass

2.4: matter exists in physical states (solid, liquid, gas) and can change from one state to another

Phases of Water

2.5: there are different types and sources of energy (for example: light, heat, motion)

Energy Conversions

2.6: electricity in circuits can produce light, heat, sound and magnetic effects

Circuit Builder
Magnetic Induction

2.7: there are different types of forces (for example: gravity and magnetism)

Gravitational Force
Magnetic Induction
Pith Ball Lab

2.8: changes in speed or direction of motion are caused by forces

Force and Fan Carts

3: Students know and understand the characteristics and structure of living things, the processes of life, and how living things interact with each other and their environment.

3.1: each plant or animal has different structures and behaviors that serve different functions in growth, survival, and reproduction

Flower Pollination

3.2: green plants need energy from sunlight and various raw materials to live, and animals consume plants and other organisms to live

Forest Ecosystem

3.3: human body systems have basic structures, functions and needs (for example: digestive, respiratory, circulatory, skeletal, muscular)

Circulatory System

3.4: there is interaction and interdependence between and among nonliving and living components of ecosystems (for example: food webs, symbiotic and parasitic relationships, dependence on rainfall, pollination)

Forest Ecosystem
Pond Ecosystem

3.5: life cycles vary from organism to organism (for example: frog, chicken, butterfly, radish, bean plant)


4: Students know and understand the processes and interactions of Earth's systems and the structure and dynamics of Earth and other objects in space.

4.5: most of the Earth?s surface is covered by water, that most of the water is salt water in the oceans, and that fresh water is found in rivers, lakes, underground sources and glaciers

Pond Ecosystem

4.6: water exists on Earth in different states (solid, liquid, gas) and changes from one state to another (for example: evaporation, condensation and precipitation)

Phases of Water

4.7: there are basic components of the solar system (for example: Sun, planets, moons)

Comparing Earth and Venus
Phases of the Moon
Solar System

4.9: the rotation of the Earth on its axis, in relation to the Sun, produces the day-and-night cycle and the orbit of the Earth around the Sun completes one year

Comparing Earth and Venus
Seasons: Earth, Moon, and Sun
