Vermont Standards for Kindergarten Science

VT.ESS. Earth/Space Science

Enduring Knowledge: Students demonstrate an understanding of natural resources and agricultural systems and why and how they are managed. This is evident when students:

SPK-K:50. Students demonstrate their understanding why and how natural resources are managed by:
SPK-K:50.2. Identifying a variety of ways that humans use agriculture/natural resources. (e.g. swimming in lakes, riding bikes, drinking water, eating safe food, creating clothing) (DOK 1)
SPK-K:50.3. Identifying and perform value of routine procedures that protect Vermont's natural resources. (DOK 1-2)

Enduring Knowledge: The universe, earth and all earth systems have undergone change in the past, continue to change in the present and are predicted to continue changing in the future.

SPK-K:48. Students demonstrate their understanding of Processes and Change over Time within Earth Systems by:
SPK-K.48.1. Observing and describing weather daily throughout a school year. (DOK 2)

VT.HB. Human Body

Enduring Knowledge: The human body is unique in its heredity, body systems and development, and can be affected by the environment.

SPK-K:41. Students demonstrate their understanding of Human Body Systems by:
SPK-K:41.1. Identifying the five senses and using the senses to identify objects in their environment. (DOK 2)

VT.LS. Life Science

Enduring Knowledge: All living organisms and their component cells have identifiable characteristics that allow for survival.

SPK-K:30. Students demonstrate their understanding of Structure and Function-Survival Requirements by:
SPK-K:30.1. Observing and recording what happens when food and water are given to living and non-living things. (DOK 2)

VT.PS. Physical Science

Enduring Knowledge: Everything is constantly moving; motion is relative, but the motion of an object can be described and predicted by tracing and measuring its position over time.

SPK-K:19. Students demonstrate their understanding of Motion by:
SPK-K:19.1. Manipulating objects and observing and describing the motion. (DOK 2)

VT.SI. Scientific Inquiry

Enduring Knowledge (Conducting Experiments): Students follow an experimental design and use scientific tools (including measurement tools) appropriately and accurately. At early stages, students are encouraged to pay close attention to their experimental plan and record data throughout an investigation. At later stages, students engage in extended investigations and use more sophisticated science tools including computers.

SPK-K:4. Conducting Experiments: Students demonstrate their ability to CONDUCT EXPERIMENTS by:
SPK-K:4.4. Drawing scientifically:
SPK-K:4.4.b. Spatially organizing and differentiating significant parts observed. (DOK 2)SPK-K:4.4.d. Using simple equipment and nonstandard measurement tools to gather data and extend the senses (e.g., balances, scales, counters, magnifiers). (DOK 2)
SPK-K:6. Students demonstrate their ability to ANALYZE DATA by:
SPK-K:6.1. Sorting objects based upon current observations and justifying groupings. (DOK 2)
