South Carolina Standards for First Grade Science

SC.1-1. Scientific Inquiry: The student will demonstrate an understanding of scientific inquiry, including the processes, skills, and mathematical thinking necessary to conduct a simple scientific investigation.

1-1.1. Compare, classify, and sequence objects by number, shape, texture, size, color, and motion, using standard English units of measurement where appropriate.

1-1.2. Use tools (including rulers) safely, accurately, and appropriately when gathering specific data.

1-1.4. Use appropriate safety procedures when conducting investigations.

SC.1-2. Plants: The student will demonstrate an understanding of the special characteristics and needs of plants that allow them to survive in their own distinct environments. (Life Science)

1-2.1. Recall the basic needs of plants (including air, water, nutrients, space, and light) for energy and growth.

1-2.2. Illustrate the major structures of plants (including stems, roots, leaves, flowers, fruits, and seeds).

1-2.4. Summarize the life cycle of plants (including germination, growth, and the production of flowers and seeds).

1-2.6. Identify characteristics of plants (including types of stems, roots, leaves, flowers, and seeds) that help them survive in their own distinct environments.

1-3.3. Recognize that the Sun and the Moon appear to rise and set.

1-3.4. Illustrate changes in the Moon's appearance (including patterns over time).

SC.1-4. Earth Materials: The student will demonstrate an understanding of the properties of Earth materials. (Earth Science)

1-4.3. Compare soil samples by sorting them according to properties (including color, texture, and the capacity to nourish growing plants).

SC.1-5. Exploring Motion: The student will demonstrate an understanding of the positions and motions of objects. (Physical Science)

1-5.2. Explain the importance of pushing and pulling to the motion of an object.

1-5.3. Illustrate the fact that sound is produced by vibrating objects.

1-5.4. Illustrate ways in which objects can move in terms of direction and speed (including straight forward, back and forth, fast or slow, zigzag, and circular).
