2
Earth, Space and the Universe4Understands the factors that are used to predict weather. (Atmosphere and Weather D-2)
3
Earth, Space and the Universe4Understands the relationship between location on earth and weather patterns. (Atmosphere and Weather D-1)
4
Earth, Space and the Universe4Understands the role of evaporation, saturation, condensation, and precipitation in the water cycle. (Atmosphere and Weather C)
5
Earth, Space and the Universe4Understands the role the sun plays in evaporation. (Atmosphere and Weather B)
6
Earth, Space and the Universe5Understands that the orbits of the earth around the sun, the moon around the earth, and the earth on its axis cause observable patterns, such as day and night and the four seasons
7
Earth, Space and the Universe5Understands that stars range greatly in their distance from the earth, and the sun is a star that appears larger and brighter to us because it is closer.

Function, Structure and Information Processing1Understands organisms have structures that have different functions to support survival (senses to detect food, legs to get it, arms to carry it away, and a mouth to eat it, etc.). (Cells and Organisms B)
10
Function, Structure and Information Processing1Understands the basic characteristics of living and non-living things (e.g. growing, responding to environment, changing, reproducing). (Cells and Organisms A-1).
11
Function, Structure and Information Processing1Understands the basic needs of living things (e.g., food, water, waste removal, shelter, space, air, temperature). (Cells and Organisms A-2)
12
Function, Structure and Information Processing3Understands that living organisms have external and internal structures that perform critical functions, including structures in the following human body systems: respiratory, circulatory, digestive, muscular, skeletal, and nervous.
13
Function, Structure and Information Processing3Understands that animals receive different types of information from their senses and that animals' brains are responsible for processing and acting on that information.
14
15
Growth, Development and Reproduction of Organisms, Natural Selection and Adaptations1Understands how organisms are categorized into groups based on structural characteristics, ways in which they obtain food, and methods of reproduction. (Biodiversity and Evolution A)
16
Growth, Development and Reproduction of Organisms, Natural Selection and Adaptations2Understands the life cycles of organisms. (Heredity and Reproduction A)
17
18
Matter and Energy in Organism and Ecosystems2Understand ways in which organisms interact within an ecosystem. (Environmental Science C)
19
Matter and Energy in Organism and Ecosystems2Understands the growth and survival of organisms in any particular environment depends on the physical conditions of the environment. (Environmental Science B)
20
Matter and Energy in Organism and Ecosystems2Understands the ways plants and animals depend upon each other for food and shelter. (Environmental Science A)
21
22
Structure/Properties of Matter, Forces, and InteractionsKUnderstands how objects can be described in terms of the materials they are made of and their properties (color, size, shape, weight, texture, flexibility, etc.). (Matter A-1)
23
Structure/Properties of Matter, Forces, and InteractionsKUnderstands that all objects are composed of parts and the sum of the weight of the parts equal the weight of the whole. (Matter B)
24
Structure/Properties of Matter, Forces, and InteractionsKUnderstands the changes that occur in properties of materials when wet, mixed, heated, frozen, cut, dissolved, blended, or exposed to light. (Matter A-2)
25
Structure/Properties of Matter, Forces, and Interactions5Understands an unbalanced force acting upon an object changes its speed or direction of motion or both. (Forces and Motion B-1)
26
Structure/Properties of Matter, Forces, and Interactions5Understands that changes in speed or direction are caused by forces. (Forces and Motion A-2)
27
Structure/Properties of Matter, Forces, and Interactions5Understands the greater the force, the greater the change in motion and when there is no force applied, motion does not change (inertia). (Forces and Motion A-1)
28
Structure/Properties of Matter, Forces, and Interactions5Understands the role of friction in motion. (Forces and Motion B-2)
