Core Ideas for Knowing Science
P2: Objects can affect other objects at a distance.
L1: Organisms are organized on a cellular basis and have a finite life span.
L2: Organisms require a supply of energy and materials for which they often depend on, or compete with, other organisms.
Kindergarten: Focus on Patterns; Structure and Function
Earth and Space Sciences: Students develop an understanding of patterns to understand changes in local weather, seasonal cycles, and daylight.
Earth and Space Standards
K.E1U1.3. Observe, record, and ask questions about temperature, precipitation, and other weather data to identify patterns or changes in local weather.
K.E1U1.4. Observe, describe, ask questions, and predict seasonal weather patterns; and how those patterns impact plants and animals (including humans).
Life Sciences: Students develop an understanding that the world is comprised of living and non-living things. They investigate the relationship between structure and function in living things; plants and animals use specialized parts to help them meet their needs and survive.
Life Science Standards
K.L1U1.6. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about how organisms use different body parts for survival.
K.L2U1.8. Observe, ask questions, and explain the differences between the characteristics of living and non-living things.
