Nevada Standards for First Grade Science

NV.E.2.A. Atmospheric Processes and the Water Cycle (Earth and Space Science Unifying Concept A): Students understand that changes in weather often involve water changing from one state to another.

E.2.A.2. Weather: Students know water on Earth can be a liquid (rain) or a solid (snow and ice), and can go back and forth from one form to the other. E/S

E.2.A.3. Weather: Students know weather changes from day to day and seasonally. I/S

E.2.A.4. Weather: Students know weather can be described by measurable quantities such as temperature, wind direction and speed, and precipitation. I/L

NV.E.2.B. Solar System and Universe (Earth and Space Science Unifying Concept B): Students understand there are objects in the sky, which display patterns.

E.2.B.4. Celestial Motion: Students know the Moon appears to change shape over the course of a month. I/L

NV.E.2.C. Earth's Composition and Structure (Earth and Space Science Unifying Concept C): Students understand that Earth materials include rocks, soils, and water.

E.2.C.1. Geologic Processes: Students know Earth is composed of different kinds of materials (e.g. rocks, soils, and water) E/S

E.2.C.2. Earth's Composition and Resources: Students know rocks come in many sizes and shapes, with various textures and colors. E/S

E.2.C.3. Earth's Composition and Resources: Students know soils have different colors or textures depending on their composition. E/S

NV.L.2.B. Structure of Life (Life Science Unifying Concept B): Students understand that living things have identifiable characteristics.

L.2.B.1. Cells: Students know humans and other animals use their senses to know their world. E/S

NV.L.2.C. Organisms and Their Environment (Life Science Unifying Concept C): Students understand that living things live in different places.

L.2.C.1. Cycles: Students know plants and animals need certain resources for energy and growth. E/S

L.2.C.2. Cycles: Students know a habitat includes food, water, shelter and space. E/S

L.2.C.3. Ecosystems: Students know living things are found almost everywhere in the world. E/S
