KY.AE. Academic Expectation
AE.2. Students shall develop their abilities to apply core concepts and principles from mathematics, the sciences, the arts, the humanities, social studies, practical living studies, and vocational studies to what they will encounter throughout their lives.
2.6. Science: Students understand how living and nonliving things change over time and the factors that influence the changes.
KY.CC. Core Content for Assessment v.4.1
SC-05-1.1. Structure and Transformation of Matter: In the elementary years of conceptual development, students will be studying properties of matter and physical changes of matter at the macro level through direct observations, forming the foundation for subsequent learning.
SC-05-1.1.1. Physical Science: Students will describe the physical properties of substances (e.g., boiling point, solubility, density).
KY.PS. Program of Studies 2006
SC-5-STM. Big Idea: Structure and Transformation of Matter (Physical Science) - A basic understanding of matter is essential to the conceptual development of other big ideas in science. In the elementary years of conceptual development, students will be studying properties of matter and physical changes of matter at the macro level through direct observations, forming the foundation for subsequent learning. The use of models (and an understanding of their scales and limitations) is an effective means of learning about the structure of matter. Looking for patterns in properties is also critical to comparing and explaining differences in matter. (Academic Expectations 2.1, 2.2, 2.4)
SC-5-STM-S-4. Program of Studies: Skills and Concepts - Students will utilize student-generated questions about the properties of matter to drive inquiry-based learning experiences
SC-5-STM-U-1. Program of Studies: Understandings - Students will understand that a substance has its own set of properties which allows it to be distinguished from other substances.
SC-5-STM-U-2. Program of Studies: Understandings - Students will understand that the physical properties of a substance do not change regardless of how much or how little of the substance there is.
