Weather and Climate

00-KENG

Students explore patterns in weather and how it changes from day to day, using measurement of temperature, wind, cloud cover and precipitation. They relate their findings to weather forecasting to prepare for severe conditions.

NEW! Plants and Animals Live Here

00-KLNG

Students investigate what all plants and animals need to survive and how they find their needs in their environments.

Motion: Pushes and Pulls

00-KPNG

Students explore the different effects of different strengths and directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of objects.

Space Systems: Patterns and Cycles

1ENG

Students make observations of patterns of objects in the sky and they seem to move. Students use patterns in data to predict some movements of objects in the sky.

NEW! Plant and Animal Traits

1LNG

Students explore some ways plants and animals meet their needs to survive and grow.

Waves: Light and Sound

1PNG

Students explore the relationship between vibrations and sound and design instruments or sound makers. Students explore light in terms of light traveling in a straight path from on place to another and placing different objects in the path of light.

Changing Earth: Today and Over Time

2ENG

Students explore and develop models of different landforms and bodies of water and investigate the causes of how the land and water can change rapidly or over a long period of time.

NEW! Plant and Animal Relationships

2LNG

Students explore the diversity of plants and animals, the dependency of plants on animals, and the dependency of animals on plants.

Structure and Properties of Matter

2PNG

Students explore the properties of matter and how different properties make material useful in designing and building different items.

Weather, Climate, and Natural Hazards

3ENG

Students explore weather at different parts of the world and different times of the year. They collect and analyze data to use patterns to predict future weather events and seasons.

Forces and Interactions

3PNG

Students explore the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of objects. Their exploration includes non-contact forces using magnets and electricity.

Processes that Shape the Earth

4ENG

Students explore the cause and effect relationship of weathering and erosion to Earth’s surfaces. They explore changes over time due to Earth’s forces and natural hazards.
