### STEM.S. SCIENCE: Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)

#### NGSS.K-PS. PHYSICAL SCIENCE

##### K-PS2. Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions
###### K-PS2-1. Plan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object.
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
###### K-PS2-2. Analyze data to determine if a design solution works as intended to change the speed or direction of an object with a push or a pull.

#### NGSS.K-ESS. EARTH AND SPACE SCIENCE

##### K-ESS2. Earth’s Systems
###### K-ESS2-1. Use and share observations of local weather conditions to describe patterns over time.
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
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
##### K-ESS3. Earth and Human Activity
###### K-ESS3-1. Use a model to represent the relationship between the needs of different plants or animals (including humans) and the places they live.

###### K-ESS3-3. Communicate solutions that will reduce the impact of humans on the land, water, air, and/or other living things in the local environment.
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.

### STEM.T. TECHNOLOGY: International Technology Education Association (ITEA)

#### ITEA.1. Students will develop an understanding of the characteristics and scope of technology. In order to comprehend the scope of technology, students should learn that:

##### (K-2) 1.B. All people use tools and techniques to help them do things.
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. Read more...iWorksheets :3Study Guides :1Vocabulary :2
##### (K-2) 1.D. Tools, materials, and skills are used to make things and carry out tasks.
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

#### ITEA.2. Students will develop an understanding of the core concepts of technology. In order to comprehend the core concepts of technology, students should learn that:

##### (K-2) 2.C. Tools are simple objects that help humans complete tasks.

#### ITEA.5. Students will develop an understanding of the effects of technology on the environment. In order to discern the effects of technology on the environment, students should learn that:

##### (K-2) 5.A. Some materials can be reused and/or recycled.
