Alignment to Standards for CA

2 2 S ES--3 Earth is made of materials that have distinct properties and provide resources for human activities.
2 2 S ES--3.a. compare the physical properties of different kinds of rocks and know that rock is composed of different combinations of minerals.
2 2 S ES--3.b. smaller rocks come from the breakage and weathering of larger rocks.
2 2 S ES--3.e.D144 rocks, water, plants, and soil provide many resources, including food, fuel, and building materials, that humans use.
2 2 S I&E--4.c. Compare and sort common objects according to two or more physical attributes (e.g., color, shape, texture, size, weight).
4 4 S ES--4 The properties of rocks and minerals reflect the processes that formed them.
4 4 S ES--4.a. differentiate among igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks by referring to their properties and methods of formation (the rock cycle).
4 4 S ES--4.b. identify common rock-forming minerals (including quartz, calcite, feldspar, mica, and hornblende) and ore minerals by using a table of diagnostic properties.
5 5 S I&E--6.a. Classify objects (e.g., rocks, plants, leaves) in accordance with appropriate criteria.
K K S ES--3.c. Students identify resources from Earth that are used in everyday life and understand that many resources can be conserved.
K K S I&E--4.a. Observe common objects by using the five senses.
K K S I&E--4.b. Describe the properties of common objects.
K K S I&E--4.d. Compare and sort common objects by one physical attribute (e.g., color, shape, texture, size, weight).
K K S PS--1 Properties of materials can be observed, measured, and predicted.
K K S PS--1.a. objects sorted by the materials they are made of and their physical properties (e.g., color, size, shape, weight, texture, flexibility, attraction to magnets, floating, sinking).
