### NGSS.K-PS. PHYSICAL SCIENCE

#### K-PS2. Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions - Students who demonstrate understanding can:

##### 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-LS. LIFE SCIENCE

#### K-LS1. From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes - Students who demonstrate understanding can:

##### K-LS1.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas
###### LS1.C:1. All animals need food in order to live and grow. They obtain their food from plants or from other animals. Plants need water and light to live and grow. (K-LS1-1)
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.

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

#### K-ESS2. Earth’s Systems - Students who demonstrate understanding can:

##### 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-ESS2.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas
###### ESS2.D:1. Weather is the combination of sunlight, wind, snow or rain, and temperature in a particular region at a particular time. People measure these conditions to describe and record the weather and to notice patterns over time. (K-ESS2-1)

##### K-ESS2.CC. Crosscutting Concepts
###### K-ESS2.CC.2.1. Systems in the natural and designed world have parts that work together. (K-ESS2-2)
Land, water, and airWhat Makes Up the Earth? Earth is made of land, water, and air. Earth has more water than land. Land on Earth can change. Weathering changes land. Water and ice causes weathering. Erosion can also change land. Erosion is when water and wind move rocks and soil. How Do We Use Air? All living things need air to live. How Do We Use Water? All living things need water to live too.

#### K-ESS3. Earth and Human Activity - Students who demonstrate understanding can:

##### 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.
