WY.1. Concepts and Processes: In the context of unifying concepts and processes, students develop an understanding of scientific content through inquiry. Science is a dynamic process; concepts and content are best learned through inquiry and investigation. Concepts in Life Systems, Earth and Space Systems, and Physical Systems are taught within the context of the following Unifying Concepts and Processes of Science: Systems, classification, order and organization; Evidence, models, and explanations; Cycles and change over time; Measurement and Form and function.

SC4.1.2. Life Systems: Life Cycles of Organisms: Students sequence life cycles of living things, and recognize that plants and animals resemble their parents.

Did you Know... 1st GradeAir is a nonliving thing. The air we breathe in is called oxygen. Herbivores are animals that only eat plants. Can you believe a HUGE dinosaur called a brachiosaurus was an herbivore? A whale is NOT a fish. It is a mammal that lives in the ocean. You have almost 10,000 taste buds in your mouth! These taste buds help you TASTE food. You can taste things that are sweet, sour, salty, and bitter! Read more...iWorksheets :3Study Guides :1Vocabulary :2

SC4.1.3. Life Systems: Organisms and Their Environments: Students show connections between living things, their basic needs, and the environments.

All about plantsWhat do plants need to grow? A plant needs: water, air, sunlight and room. How does a plant grow? A seed comes from an adult plant and falls to the ground. Once in the ground, a seed begins to grow in the soil. Roots grow from a seed down into the ground. A young plant grows up through the soil. Parts of a Plant: Roots, Stem, Leaves, Flower.

All about animalsWhat Do Animals Need to Live? Animals need to: drink water, eat food, breathe air. Animals also need shelter. How do Animals Get Food? How do Different Animals Breath? Animals Grow and Change. How do Animals Stay Safe? Animal Body Parts. Read more...iWorksheets :4Study Guides :1Vocabulary :1
Food ChainsWhat is a Food Chain? A food chain is a chain of plant and animals in which a plant or animal is eaten by the next animal on the chain. Read more...iWorksheets :4Study Guides :1Vocabulary :2

SC4.1.4. Earth and Space Systems: Properties of Earth Materials: Students investigate water, air, rocks, and soils to compare basic properties of earth materials.

Earth's resourcesNatural resources are useful things that we can find on the Earth. Natural resources are important to living things, including us! Some examples of natural resources are water, soil, air, rocks, and Minerals. Read more...iWorksheets :3Study Guides :1Vocabulary :2
Land, water, and airWhat Makes Up the Earth? Earth is made of land, water, and air. Earth has more water than land. Land on Earth can change. Weathering changes land. Water and ice causes weathering. Erosion can also change land. Erosion is when water and wind move rocks and soil. How Do We Use Air? All living things need air to live. How Do We Use Water? All living things need water to live too.

SC4.1.6. Earth and Space Systems: Changes in Earth and Sky: Students describe observable changes in earth and sky, including rapid and gradual changes to the earth's surface, and daily and seasonal changes in the weather.

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

SC4.1.7. Physical Systems: Properties of Objects: Students classify objects by properties that can be observed, measured, and recorded, including color, shape, size, weight, volume, texture, and temperature.

Describe and measure matterWhat is matter? Matter is all around you. Matter is anything that takes up space. Read more...iWorksheets :3Study Guides :1Vocabulary :2
Hands-on Lab Skills/Science InquiryScientists use MANY different tools while they are observing and conducting experiments. Here are some tools scientists use: RULER, MEASURING CUP, CLOCK, HAND, LENS, THERMOMETER, BALANCE. Scientists often put objects into piles or groups based on their color, shape, texture, size and weight. Read more...iWorksheets :3Study Guides :1Vocabulary :2

SC4.1.9. Physical Systems: Physical Phenomena: Students investigate physical phenomena commonly encountered in daily life, including light, heat, electricity, sound, and magnetism.

All about heat and energyFreeEnergy is the ability to do work. The sun is the main source of earth's heat and light energy. Read more...iWorksheets :3Study Guides :1Vocabulary :1
Light and soundWhere Does Light Come From? Light is brightness that comes from an object like a flashlight, a candle, a light bulb, or the Sun. How is Sound Made? Sound is made because of something vibrating. Vibrate means to move back and forth really fast. Read more...iWorksheets :3Study Guides :1Vocabulary :1
ElectricityElectricity is a form of energy. Electricity is what makes our TVs, radios, digital clocks, refrigerators, ovens and lights work! Electricity is created in large factories called power plants. Read more...iWorksheets :3Study Guides :1
MagnetsWhat is a Magnet? Magnets attract certain kinds of metal such as iron. A magnet has two poles, a north and south pole. Its north pole is on one end and its south pole is on the other end. What do magnets do? Magnets can attract an object. Attract means to pull towards. If something is magnetic, that means it can be attracted by a magnet.

SC4.1.10. Physical Systems: Position and Motion of Objects: Students demonstrate that pushing and pulling can change the position and motion of objects.

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. Speed is how fast or how slow an object moves. Objects can move straight, up, down, to the left, or to the right. Objects can curve and swerve when they move too!

WY.2. Science as Inquiry: Students demonstrate knowledge, skills, and habits of mind necessary to safely perform scientific inquiry. Inquiry is the foundation for the development of content, teaching students the use of processes of science that enable them to construct and develop their own knowledge. Inquiry requires appropriate field, classroom, and laboratory experiences with suitable facilities and equipment.

SC4.2.3. Students identify and use appropriate scientific equipment.

Hands-on Lab Skills/Science InquiryScientists use MANY different tools while they are observing and conducting experiments. Here are some tools scientists use: RULER, MEASURING CUP, CLOCK, HAND, LENS, THERMOMETER, BALANCE.
