West Virginia Standards for First Grade Science

WV.SC.S.1.1. Nature of Science: Students will demonstrate an understanding of the history and nature of science as a human endeavor encompassing the contributions of diverse cultures, scientists, and careers, demonstrate the abilities and understanding necessary to do scientific inquiry, demonstrate the ability to think and act as scientists by engaging in active inquiries and investigations, while incorporating hands-on activities.

SC.O.1.1.2. Discuss the lives and discoveries of scientists after listening to stories about their lives and discoveries.

SC.O.1.1.3. Demonstrate curiosity, initiative and creativity by questioning observations of changes in the environment (e.g., life cycles, motion of celestial objects, or sun and shadow).

SC.O.1.1.4. Use scientific instruments and everyday materials to investigate the natural world (e.g., hand lens, balance, magnets, thermometer, seeds, or rocks).

SC.O.1.1.5. Use safe and proper techniques for handling, manipulating and caring for science materials (e.g., follow safety rules, maintain a clean work area, or treat living organisms humanely).

SC.O.1.1.6. Collect, record and compare information using a variety of classification systems (e.g., ordering, sorting, or sequencing) and using a variety of communication techniques (e.g., sketches, pictographs, or models).

WV.SC.S.1.2. Content of Science: Students will demonstrate knowledge, understanding and applications of scientific facts, concepts, principles, theories and models as delineated in the objectives, demonstrate an understanding of the interrelationships among physics, chemistry, biology and the earth and space sciences, apply knowledge, understanding and skills of science subject matter/concepts to daily life experiences.

SC.O.1.2.1. Classify objects as living or non-living.

SC.O.1.2.10. Classify objects as magnetic or non-magnetic.

SC.O.1.2.12. Describe the changes in the motion of objects (e.g., slowing down, speeding up, or curving).

SC.O.1.2.13. Demonstrate that sounds are produced by vibrations.

SC.O.1.2.14. Observe, identify and record changes in weather and effects on living organisms.

SC.O.1.2.16. Observe and discuss the importance of objects in the day and night sky.

SC.O.1.2.19. Investigate and compare the properties of soil (e.g., sand, clay, or humus).

SC.O.1.2.2. Identify that most living things need water, food, light and air.

SC.O.1.2.3. Describe changes in life cycle of living organisms.

SC.O.1.2.4. Identify the parts of growing plants as they develop.

SC.O.1.2.5. Depict movement of living things in air, water and on land (e.g., birds flying, fish swimming, or worms burrowing in soil).

SC.O.1.2.6. Recognize that materials are composed of smaller parts that may be seen with a magnifier.

SC.O.1.2.7. Recognize that materials can be recycled and used again, sometimes in different forms.

WV.SC.S.1.3. Application of Science: Students will identify how the parts of a system interact, recognize and use models as representations of real things, demonstrate the ability to distinguish between natural and man-made objects, Listen and be tolerant of different viewpoints while working in collaborative groups, and demonstrate the ability to evaluate the impact of different points of view on health, population, resources and environment practices.

SC.O.1.3.5. Develop respect and responsibility for the environment by engaging in conservation practices (e.g., recycling, or trash clean-up).
