Core Ideas for Knowing Science

Physical Science

P2: Objects can affect other objects at a distance.
Force and motionWhat Makes Things Move? Forces make things move! A force is a push or pull that can make something move. Gravity is a force! Gravity is a force that pulls things down. Speed is how fast or how slow an object moves. Objects can move straight, up, down, to the left, or to the right. Objects can curve and swerve when they move too!

Did you Know... 1st GradeAir is a nonliving thing. The air we breathe in is called oxygen. Herbivores are animals that only eat plants. Can you believe a HUGE dinosaur called a brachiosaurus was an herbivore? A whale is NOT a fish. It is a mammal that lives in the ocean. You have almost 10,000 taste buds in your mouth! These taste buds help you TASTE food. You can taste things that are sweet, sour, salty, and bitter! Read more...iWorksheets :3Study Guides :1Vocabulary :2

L2: Organisms require a supply of energy and materials for which they often depend on, or compete with, other organisms.
All about plantsWhat do plants need to grow? A plant needs: water, air, sunlight and room. How does a plant grow? A seed comes from an adult plant and falls to the ground. Once in the ground, a seed begins to grow in the soil. Roots grow from a seed down into the ground. A young plant grows up through the soil. Parts of a Plant: Roots, Stem, Leaves, Flower.

Core Ideas for Using Science

U2: The knowledge produced by science is used in engineering and technologies to solve problems and/or create products.

Science in our worldScience is used every day to make this world a great place to live! People use science to invent and create technology. Tools help us do different jobs and make the job easier to do. Technology we use to communicate with others: telephone, cell phone, computer/Internet.

Kindergarten: Focus on Patterns; Structure and Function

Earth and Space Sciences: Students develop an understanding of patterns to understand changes in local weather, seasonal cycles, and daylight.

Earth and Space Standards
K.E1U1.3. Observe, record, and ask questions about temperature, precipitation, and other weather data to identify patterns or changes in local weather.
WeatherWhen someone asks, “What is the weather today?” you know what they are asking. They are asking what it is like outside. They want to know what nature is doing in your area – raining, snowing, blowing… How We Measure Weather: We measure temperature using a thermometer. A wind vane measures the direction of the wind. A rain gauge measures how much rain falls.Read more...iWorksheets :4Study Guides :1Vocabulary :2
WeatherWorksheets :20
K.E1U1.4. Observe, describe, ask questions, and predict seasonal weather patterns; and how those patterns impact plants and animals (including humans).
The seasonsA season is a different time of year. There are four seasons: winter, spring, summer, and fall. The four seasons always come in the same order. Winter comes first in the year. Spring comes next. Summer is third. Fall is the fourth season. Seasons bring different types of weather. Read more...iWorksheets :4Study Guides :1Vocabulary :1

Life Sciences: Students develop an understanding that the world is comprised of living and non-living things. They investigate the relationship between structure and function in living things; plants and animals use specialized parts to help them meet their needs and survive.

Life Science Standards
K.L1U1.6. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about how organisms use different body parts for survival.
All about plantsWhat do plants need to grow? A plant needs: water, air, sunlight and room. How does a plant grow? A seed comes from an adult plant and falls to the ground.

Animal groupsA MAMMAL is an animal. A REPTILE is an animal. An AMPHIBIAN is an animal. Worms are animals too! Insects – bugs! Insects are part of the animal family too! Some animals have four legs. Some animals have two legs. Animals have different coverings on their bodies. Some animals have fur… Read more...iWorksheets :3Study Guides :1Vocabulary :1

K.L1U1.7. Observe, ask questions, and explain how specialized structures found on a variety of plants and animals (including humans) help them sense and respond to their environment.
My sensesYou have five senses. Your Sense of SMELL. Your Sense of HEARING. Your Sense of TOUCH. Your Sense of SIGHT. Your Sense of TASTE. Scientists use their senses to study the world. You can use your senses to study the world too! Read more...iWorksheets :4Study Guides :1Vocabulary :1
K.L2U1.8. Observe, ask questions, and explain the differences between the characteristics of living and non-living things.
Living and nonliving thingsWhat is a LIVING thing? If something is LIVING - it is alive! A plant is a living thing. An animal is a living thing. What is a NONLIVING thing? If something is a NONLIVING thing, it is not alive. Soil is a nonliving thing. A rock is a nonliving thing. Water is a nonliving thing. Read more...iWorksheets :4Study Guides :1Vocabulary :1
