ND.1. Unifying Concepts: Students understand the unifying concepts and processes of science.

4.1.1. Models: Explain changes in the real world using a model (e.g., erosion, volcano, stream table, wing designs for airplanes)

4.1.2. Constancy and Change: Identify changes that can be steady or irregular (e.g., floods, earthquakes, erosion, tooth decay)

ND.2. Science Inquiry: Students use the process of science inquiry.

4.2.2. Abilities Necessary To Do Scientific Inquiry: Conduct simple investigations to answer questions based on observations

4.2.3. Abilities Necessary To Do Scientific Inquiry: Use scientific tools (i.e., thermometers, rulers, balances) during simple investigations

ND.3. Physical Science: Students understand the basic concepts and principles of physical science.

4.3.1. Properties of Matter: Identify the forms in which water appears when heated and cooled (i.e., water vapor, liquid, solid)

4.3.3. Properties of Matter: Explain that matter is made up of parts that are too small to see without magnification

4.3.4. Force and Motion: Identify the effects forces may have when applied to objects (i.e., start, stop, change direction)

4.3.5. Forms of Energy: Describe how the path of light changes (i.e., reflected, absorbed, or allowed to pass through) when it encounters a variety of objects

4.3.6. Forms of Energy: Explain how the pitch of a sound is related to the rate of vibrations.

ND.4. Life Science: Students understand the basic concepts and principles of life science.

4.4.1. Structure and Function: Classify plants and animals according to common physical characteristics

4.4.2. Structure and Function: Identify adaptations that help plants and animals survive and grow in their environment

4.4.3. Characteristics of Organisms: Identify behaviors of animals as instinctive or learned

4.4.4. Organisms and Their Environments: Identify ways that an organism's pattern of behavior is related to the nature of the organism's environment (e.g., the availability of food, space, and resources)

ND.5. Earth and Space Science: Students understand the basic concepts and principles of earth and space science.

4.5.1. Weather, Seasons, and Climate: Describe how as water condenses small droplets of water form clouds and fog

4.5.2. Earth's Surface: Identify slow and rapid processes (e.g., wind, water, waves, ice, volcano, earthquake) that are constantly changing Earth's surface

4.5.3. Earth's Surface: Use characteristics to classify Earth's materials (i.e. rocks, soil)

4.5.4. Earth's Surface: Compare fossil evidence to existing organisms

4.5.5. Solar System: Identify components of our solar system (e.g., planets, moons, Sun)

ND.7. Science and Other Areas: Students understand relations between science and personal, social, and environmental issues.

4.7.1. Science and Environmental Issues: Identify consequences of natural and human-induced environmental changes (e.g., erosion, tsunami, deforestation)

ND.8. History and Nature of Science: Students understand the history and nature of science.

4.8.1. People in Science: Identify a variety of careers in the field of science

4.8.2. Scientific Knowledge: Identify scientific advances that changed popular beliefs (e.g., Earth was center of universe, world was flat, man was incapable of flight)
