Arizona Standards for First Grade Science

AZ.SC01-S1. Inquiry Process

SC01-S1C2. Scientific Testing (Investigating and Modeling): Participate in planning and conducting investigations, and recording data.

SC01-S1C2-01. Demonstrate safe behavior and appropriate procedures (e.g., use of instruments, materials, organisms) in all science inquiry.
SC01-S1C2-03. Use simple tools such as rulers, thermometers, magnifiers, and balances to collect data (U.S. customary units) (See M01-S4C4-07).
SC01-S1C2-04. Record data from guided investigations in an organized and appropriate format (e.g., lab book, log, notebook, chart paper) (See W01-S3C2-01 and W01-S3C3-01).

SC01-S1C3. Analysis and Conclusions: Organize and analyze data; compare to predictions.

SC01-S1C3-01. Organize (e.g., compare, classify, and sequence) objects, organisms, and events according to various characteristics (See M01-S4C4-01).

SC01-S1C4. Communication: Communicate results of investigations.

SC01-S1C4-01. Communicate the results of an investigation using pictures, graphs, models, and/or words. (See M01-S2C1-02 and W01-S3C3-02).

AZ.SC01-S2. History and Nature of Science

SC01-S2C1. History of Science as a Human Endeavor: Identify individual and cultural contributions to scientific knowledge.
