Missouri Learning Standards
MO.1.PS4. Waves and Their Applications in technologies for Information Transfer
1.PS4.A. Wave Properties
1.PS4.A.1. Plan and conduct investigations to provide evidence that vibrating materials can make sound and that sound can make materials vibrate. [Clarification Statement: Examples of vibrating materials that make sound could include tuning forks and plucking a stretched string. Examples of how sound can make matter vibrate could include holding a piece of paper near a speaker making sound and holding an object near a vibrating tuning fork.]
1.PS4.C. Information Technologies and Instrumentation
1.PS4.C.1. Use tools and materials to design and build a device that uses light or sound to solve the problem of communicating over a distance. [Clarification Statement: Examples of devices could include a light source to send signals, paper cup and string “telephones,” and a pattern of drum beats.]
MO.1.ESS1. Earth's Place in the Universe
1.ESS1.A. The Universe and its Stars
1.ESS1.A.1. Describe the presence of the Sun, Moon, and stars in the sky over time.
1.ESS1.A.2. Use observations of the sun, moon, and stars to describe patterns that can be predicted. [Clarification Statement: Examples of patterns could include that the sun and moon appear to rise in one part of the sky, move across the sky, and set; and stars other than our sun are visible at night but not during the day.]
MO.1.ESS2. Earth's Systems
1.ESS2.D. Weather and Climate
1.ESS2.D.1. Identify patterns indicating relationships between observed weather data and weather phenomena (e.g., temperature and types of precipitation, clouds and amounts of precipitation).
