Alabama Courses of Study
AL.K.PS. PHYSICAL SCIENCE
Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions
K.PS.1. Investigate the resulting motion of objects when forces of different strengths and directions act upon them (e.g., object being pushed, object being pulled, two objects colliding).
K.PS.2. Use observations and data from investigations to determine if a design solution (e.g., designing a ramp to increase the speed of an object in order to move a stationary object) solves the problem of using force to change the speed or direction of an object.
AL.K.LS. LIFE SCIENCE
Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics
K.LS.3. Distinguish between living and nonliving things and verify what living things need to survive (e.g., animals needing food, water, and air; plants needing nutrients, water, sunlight, and air).
