MS.L.K. KINDERGARTEN: Life Science

Hierarchical Organization

L.K.1A. Students will demonstrate an understanding of living and nonliving things.
L.K.1A.1. With teacher guidance, conduct an investigation of living organisms and nonliving objects in various real-world environments to define characteristics of living organisms that distinguish them from nonliving things (e.g., playground, garden, school grounds).
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
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

L.K.1B. Students will demonstrate an understanding of how animals (including humans) use their physical features and their senses to learn about their environment.
L.K.1B.1. Develop and use models to exemplify how animals use their body parts to (a) obtain food and other resources, (b) protect themselves, and (c) move from place to place.
All about animalsWhat Do Animals Need to Live? Animals need to: drink water, eat food, breathe air. Animals also need shelter. How do Animals Get Food? How do Different Animals Breath? Animals Grow and Change. How do Animals Stay Safe? Animal Body Parts. Read more...iWorksheets :4Study Guides :1Vocabulary :1
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

MS.P.K. KINDERGARTEN: Physical Science

Organization of Matter and Chemical Interactions

P.K.5A. Students will demonstrate an understanding of the solid and liquid states of matter.
P.K.5A.1. Generate questions and investigate the differences between liquids and solids and develop awareness that a liquid can become a solid and vice versa.
Describe and measure matterWhat is matter? Matter is all around you. Matter is anything that takes up space. Read more...iWorksheets :3Study Guides :1Vocabulary :2

P.K.5A.2. Describe and compare the properties of different materials (e.g., wood, plastic, metal, cloth, paper) and classify these materials by their observable characteristics (visual, aural, or natural textural) and by their physical properties (weight, volume, solid or liquid, and sink or float).

Hands-on Lab Skills/Science InquiryScientists use MANY different tools while they are observing and conducting experiments. Here are some tools scientists use: RULER, MEASURING CUP, CLOCK, HAND, LENS, THERMOMETER, BALANCE. Scientists often put objects into piles or groups based on their color, shape, texture, size and weight. Read more...iWorksheets :3Study Guides :1Vocabulary :2

MS.E.K. KINDERGARTEN: Earth and Space Science

Earth and the Universe

E.K.8A. Students will demonstrate an understanding of the pattern of seasonal changes on the Earth.
E.K.8A.1. Construct an explanation of the pattern of the Earth’s seasonal changes in the environment using evidence from observations.
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

Earth’s Resources

E.K.10. Students will demonstrate an understanding of how humans use Earth’s resources.
E.K.10.1. Participate in a teacher-led activity to gather, organize and record recyclable materials data on a chart or table using technology. Communicate results.
Taking Care of EarthHow Can People Protect the Earth? We can use our resources wisely. That means we must use all resources carefully and not waste them. Do not waste water. Do not litter – throw trash away in a trash can. Do not put bad things in water. Bad things can pollute water. Remember the three R’s: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.

E.K.10.2. With teacher guidance, develop questions to conduct a structured investigation to determine ways to conserve Earth's resources (i.e., reduce, reuse, and recycle) and communicate results.
