### SD.K.PS. Kindergarten Physical Science Standards

#### K-PS2-1. Plan and carry out an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object. (SEP: 3; DCI: PS2.A, PS2.B, PS3.C; CCC: Cause/Effect)

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.

#### 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. (SEP: 4; DCI: PS2.A, ETS1.A; CCC: Cause/Effect)

### SD.K.ESS. Kindergarten Earth and Space Science Standards

#### K-ESS2-1. Use and share observations of local weather conditions to describe patterns over time. (SEP: 4; DCI: ESS2.D; CCC: Patterns)

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
