WI.D. Physical Science: Students in Wisconsin will demonstrate an understanding of the physical and chemical properties of matter, the forms and properties of energy, and the ways in which matter and energy interact.
D.4.4. Properties of Earth Materials: Observe and describe changes in form, temperature, color, speed, and direction of objects and construct explanations for the changes.
D.4.6. Position and Motion of Objects: Observe and describe physical events in objects at rest or in motion.
D.4.7. Position and Motion of Objects: Observe and describe physical events involving objects and develop record-keeping systems to follow these events by measuring and describing changes in their properties, including: position relative to another object, motion over time, and position due to forces.
D.4.8. Light, Heat, Electricity, and Magnetism: Ask questions and make observations to discover the differences between substances that can be touched (matter) and substances that cannot be touched (forms of energy, light, heat, electricity, sound, and magnetism).
WI.E. Earth and Space Science: Students in Wisconsin will demonstrate an understanding of the structure and systems of earth and other bodies in the universe and of their interactions.
E.4.7. Changes in The Earth and Sky: Using the science themes, describe resources used in the home, community, and nation as a whole.
WI.H. Science Applications: Students in Wisconsin will use scientific information and skills to make decisions about themselves, Wisconsin, and the world in which they live.
H.4.4. Develop a list of issues that citizens must make decisions about and describe a strategy for becoming informed about the science behind these issues.
