MA.ES. EARTH AND SPACE SCIENCE
ES.5. Identify some events around us that have repeating patterns, including the seasons of the year, day and night.
ES.3. Describe the weather changes from day to day and over the seasons.
MA.LS. LIFE SCIENCE
Characteristics of Living Things
LS.1. Recognize that animals (including humans) and plants are living things that grow, reproduce, and need food, air, and water.
LS.2. Differentiate between living and nonliving things. Group both living and nonliving things according to the characteristics that they share.
Evolution and Biodiversity
LS.5. Recognize that fossils provide us with information about living things that inhabited the earth years ago.
LS.3. Recognize that plants and animals have life cycles, and that life cycles vary for different living things.
Living Things and Their Environment
LS.6. Recognize that people and other animals interact with the environment through their senses of sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste.
LS.8. Identify the ways in which an organism's habitat provides for its basic needs (plants require air, water, nutrients, and light; animals require food, water, air, and shelter).
MA.PS. PHYSICAL SCIENCES
Observable Properties of Objects
PS.1. Sort objects by observable properties such as size, shape, color, weight, and texture.
Position and Motion of Objects
PS.4. Demonstrate that the way to change the motion of an object is to apply a force (give it a push or a pull). The greater the force, the greater the change in the motion of the object.
States of Matter
PS.2. Identify objects and materials as solid, liquid, or gas. Recognize that solids have a definite shape and that liquids and gases take the shape of their container.
MA.SIS. SKILLS OF INQUIRY, EXPERIMENTATION, AND DESIGN
SIS3. Make predictions based on observed patterns.
SIS4. Name and use simple equipment and tools (e.g., rulers, meter sticks, thermometers, hand lenses, and balances) to gather data and extend the senses.
T/E.2. Engineering Design
T/E.2.1. Identify tools and simple machines used for a specific purpose, e.g., ramp, wheel, pulley, lever.
T/E.2.2. Describe how human beings use parts of the body as tools (e.g., teeth for cutting, hands for grasping and catching), and compare their use with the ways in which animals use those parts of their bodies.
