UT.1. The Processes of Science, Communication of Science, and the Nature of Science: Students will be able to apply scientific processes, communicate scientific ideas effectively, and understand the nature of science.

1.1. Generating Evidence: Using the processes of scientific investigation (i.e. framing questions, designing investigations, conducting investigations, collecting data, drawing conclusions)

1.1.3. Conducting investigations: Observe, manipulate, measure, describe.
1.1.4. Collecting data: Deciding what data to collect and how to organize, record, and manipulate the data.

1.2. Communicating Science: Communicating effectively using science language and reasoning

1.2.4. Using multiple methods of communicating reasons/evidence (verbal, charts, graphs).

UT.2. Earth and Space Science: Students will gain an understanding of Earth and Space Science through the study of earth materials, celestial movement, and weather.

2.1. Investigate the natural world including rock, soil and water.

2.1.1. Observe, compare, describe, and sort components of soil by size, texture, and color.
2.1.3. Gather evidence about the uses of rocks, soil, and water.

2.2. Observe and describe the changes and appearance of the sun and moon during daylight.

2.2.2. Observe and chart the moon when it is visible during the day.

2.3. Compare and contrast seasonal weather changes.

2.3.1. Identify characteristics of the seasons of the year.
2.3.2. Identify characteristics of weather, e.g., types of precipitation, sunny, windy, foggy, and cloudy.
2.3.3. Observe and record weather information within each season.

UT.3. Physical Science: Students will gain an understanding of Physical Science through the study of the forces of motion and the properties of materials.

3.1. Analyze changes in the movement of nonliving things.

3.1.1. Describe, classify, and communicate observations about the motion of objects, e.g., straight, zigzag, circular, curved, back-and-forth, and fast or slow.
3.1.2. Compare and contrast the movement of objects using drawings, graphs, and numbers.
3.1.3. Explain how a push or pull can affect how an object moves.

3.2. Analyze objects and record their properties.

3.2.2. Predict measurable properties such as weight, temperature, and whether objects sink or float; test and record data.
3.2.3. Predict, identify, and describe changes in matter when heated, cooled, or mixed with water.

UT.4. Life Science: Students will gain an understanding of Life Science through the study of changes in organisms over time and the nature of living things.

4.1. Communicate observations about the similarities and differences between offspring and between populations.

4.1.1. Communicate observations about plants and animals, including humans, and how they resemble their parents.
4.1.2. Analyze the individual similarities and differences within and across larger groups.

4.2. Living things change and depend upon their environment to satisfy their basic needs.

4.2.2. Identify how natural earth materials (e.g., food, water, air, light, and space), help to sustain plant and animal life.
4.2.3. Describe and model life cycles of living things.
