Missouri Learning Standards
MO.K.PS1. Matter and Its Interactions
K.PS1.A. Structure and Properties of Matter
K.PS1.A.1. Make qualitative observations of the physical properties of objects (i.e., size, shape, color, mass).
MO.K.PS2. Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions
K.PS2.A. Forces and Motion
K.PS2.A.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. [Clarification Statement: Examples of pushes or pulls could include a string attached to an object being pulled, a person pushing an object, a person stopping a rolling ball, and two objects colliding and pushing on each other.]
MO.K.ESS1. Earth's Place in the Universe
K.ESS1.B. Earth and the Solar System
K.ESS1.B.1. Make observations during different seasons to relate the amount of daylight to the time of year. [Clarification Statement: Emphasis is on relative comparisons of the amount of daylight in the winter to the amount in the spring or fall.]
MO.K.ESS2. Earth's Systems
K.ESS2.D. Weather and Climate
K.ESS2.D.1. Use and share observations of local weather conditions to describe patterns over time. [Clarification Statement: Examples of qualitative observations could include descriptions of the weather (such as sunny, cloudy, rainy, and warm); examples of quantitative observations could include numbers of sunny, windy, and rainy days in a month. Examples of patterns could include that it is usually cooler in the morning than in the afternoon and the number of sunny days versus cloudy days in different months.]
MO.K.ESS3. Earth and Human Activity
K.ESS3.A. Natural Resources
K.ESS3.A.1. Use a model to represent the relationship between the needs of different plants or animals (including humans) and the places they live.
