South Carolina Standards & Learning

K.S.1. The student will use the science and engineering practices, including the processes and skills of scientific inquiry, to develop understandings of science content.
K.S.1A. Conceptual Understanding: The practices of science and engineering support the development of science concepts, develop the habits of mind that are necessary for scientific thinking, and allow students to engage in science in ways that are similar to those used by scientists and engineers.
Students who demonstrate this understanding can:
K.S.1A.3. With teacher guidance, conduct structured investigations to answer scientific questions, test predictions and develop explanations: (1) predict possible outcomes, (2) identify materials and follow procedures, (3) use appropriate tools or instruments to make qualitative observations and take nonstandard measurements, and (4) record and represent data in an appropriate form. Use appropriate safety procedures.
K.L.2. The student will demonstrate an understanding of organisms found in the environment and how these organisms depend on the environment to meet those needs.
K.L.2A. Conceptual Understanding: The environment consists of many types of organisms including plants, animals, and fungi. Organisms depend on the land, water, and air to live and grow. Plants need water and light to make their own food. Fungi and animals cannot make their own food and get energy from other sources. Animals (including humans) use different body parts to obtain food and other resources needed to grow and survive. Organisms live in areas where their needs for air, water, nutrients, and shelter are met.
Students who demonstrate this understanding can:
K.L.2A.1. Obtain information to answer questions about different organisms found in the environment (such as plants, animals, or fungi).
K.L.2A.3. Develop and use models to exemplify how animals use their body parts to (1) obtain food and other resources, (2) protect themselves, and (3) move from place to place.
K.L.2A.6. Obtain and communicate information about the needs of organisms to explain why they live in particular areas.
K.E.3. The student will demonstrate an understanding of daily and seasonal weather patterns.
K.E.3A. Conceptual Understanding: Weather is a combination of sunlight, wind, snow or rain, and temperature in a particular region at a particular time. Scientists measure weather conditions to describe and record the weather and to notice patterns over time. Plants and animals (including humans) respond to different weather conditions in different ways.
Students who demonstrate this understanding can:
K.E.3A.1. Analyze and interpret local weather condition data (including precipitation, wind, temperature, and cloud cover) to describe weather patterns that occur from day to day, using simple graphs and pictorial weather symbols.
K.E.3A.2. Develop and use models to predict seasonal weather patterns and changes.
K.P.4. The student will demonstrate an understanding of the observable properties of matter.
K.P.4A. Conceptual Understanding: Objects can be described and classified by their observable properties, by their uses, and by whether they occur naturally or are manufactured (human-made). Different properties of objects are suited for different purposes.
Students who demonstrate this understanding can:
K.P.4A.1. Analyze and interpret data to compare the qualitative properties of objects (such as size, shape, color, texture, weight, flexibility, attraction to magnets, or ability to sink or float) and classify objects based on similar properties.
K.P.4A.3. Conduct structured investigations to answer questions about which materials have the properties that are best suited to solve a problem or need.
