AK.A1. Science as Inquiry and Process (SA1, SA2, SA3)

[3] SA1.1. The student develops an understanding of the processes of science by asking questions, predicting, observing, describing, measuring, classifying, making generalizations, inferring and communicating.

AK.B1. Concepts of Physical Science (SB1, SB2, SB3, SB4)

[3] SB1.1. The student demonstrates an understanding of the structure and properties of matter by classifying matter according to physical properties (i.e., color, size, shape, weight, texture, flexibility).

[3] SB3.1. The student demonstrates an understanding of the interactions between matter and energy and the effects of these interactions on systems by recognizing that temperature changes cause changes in phases of substances (e.g., ice changing to liquid, water changing to water vapor, and vice versa).

[3] SB4.2. The student demonstrates an understanding of motions, forces, their characteristics, relationships, and effects by recognizing that objects can be moved without being touched (e.g., using magnets, falling objects, static electricity).

AK.C1. Concepts of Life Science (SC1, SC2, SC3)

[3] SC1.2. The student demonstrates an understanding of how science explains changes in life forms over time, including genetics, heredity, the process of natural selection and biological evolution by describing how some traits (e.g. claws, teeth, camouflage) of living organisms have helped them survive as a species.

[3] SC2.1. The student demonstrates an understanding of the structure, function, behavior, development, life cycles, and diversity of living organisms by sorting animals and plants into groups based on appearance and behaviors.

[3] SC2.2. The student demonstrates an understanding of the structure, function, behavior, development, life cycles, and diversity of living organisms by observing and comparing external features of plants and of animals that may help them grow, survive, and reproduce.

[3] SC3.1. The student demonstrates an understanding that all organisms are linked to each other and their physical environments through the transfer and transformation of matter and energy by identifying and sorting examples of living and non-living things in the local environment. (L)

[3] SC3.2. The student demonstrates an understanding that all organisms are linked to each other and their physical environments through the transfer and transformation of matter and energy by organizing a simple food chain of familiar plants and animals. (L)

AK.D1. Concepts of Earth Science (SD1, SD2, SD3, SD4)

[3] SD1.1. The student demonstrates an understanding of geochemical cycles by recognizing that most rocks are composed of combinations of different substances.

[3] SD1.2. The student demonstrates an understanding of geochemical cycles by describing the water cycle to show that water circulates through the crust, oceans, and atmosphere of Earth.

AK.E1. Science and Technology (SE1, SE2, SE3)

[3] SE2.1. The student demonstrates an understanding that solving problems involves different ways of thinking, perspectives, and curiosity by identifying local tools and materials used in everyday life. (L)

[3] SE3.1. The student demonstrates an understanding of how scientific discoveries and technological innovations affect our lives and society by listing the positive and negative effects of a single technological development in the local community (e.g., fish trap, fish wheel, four-wheeler, computer). (L)

AK.SB. Concepts of Physical Science: A student should understand and be able to apply the concepts, models, theories, universal principles, and facts that explain the physical world. A student who meets the content standard should:

SB4. Develop an understanding of motions, forces, their characteristics and relationships, and natural forces and their effects.

AK.SC. Concepts of Life Science: A student should understand and be able to apply the concepts, models, theories, facts, evidence, systems, and processes of life science. A student who meets the content standard should:

SC2. Develop an understanding of the structure, function, behavior, development, life cycles, and diversity of living organisms.

SC3. Develop an understanding that all organisms are linked to each other and their physical environments through the transfer and transformation of matter and energy.

AK.SD. Concepts of Earth Science: A student should understand and be able to apply the concepts, processes, theories, models, evidence, and systems of earth and space sciences. A student who meets the content standard should:

SD1. Develop an understanding of Earth's geochemical cycles.

SD2. Develop an understanding of the origins, ongoing processes, and forces that shape the structure, composition, and physical history of the Earth.

SD3. Develop an understanding of the cyclical changes controlled by energy from the sun and by Earth's position and motion in our solar system.

AK.SF. Cultural, Social, Personal Perspectives and Science: A student should understand the dynamic relationships among scientific, cultural, social, and personal perspectives. A student who meets the content standard should:

SF1. Develop an understanding of the interrelationships among individuals, cultures, societies, science, and technology.
