1 S1CS2. a Use whole numbers in ordering, counting, identifying, measuring, and describing things and experiences.
1 S1CS2. b Readily give the sums and differences of single-digit numbers in ordinary, practical contexts and judge the reasonableness of the answer.
1 S1CS4. b changes in the size, weight, color, or movement of things, and note which of their other qualities remain the same during a specific change.
1 S1CS4. c Compare very different sizes, weights, ages (baby/adult), and speeds (fast/slow) of both human made and natural things.
1 S1L1. b. Identify the basic needs of an animal√£air(oxygen), water, food, shelter
1 S1L1. d. Compare and describe various animals√£appearance, motion, growth, basic needs.
2 S2CS2. a. Use whole numbers in ordering, counting, identifying, measuring, and describing things and experiences.
2 S2CS2. b. Readily give the sums and differences of single-digit numbers in ordinary, practical contexts and judge the reasonableness of the answer.
2 S2L1. Students will investigate the life cycles of different living organisms.
2 S2L1. a. Determine the sequence of the life cycle of common animals in your area: a mammal such as a cat or dog or classroom pet, a bird such as a chicken, an amphibian such as a frog, and an insect such as a butterfly.
3 S3CS2. a. Add, subtract, multiply, and divide whole numbers mentally, on paper, and with a calculator.
3 S3CS4. b. Use geometric figures, number sequences, graphs, diagrams, sketches, number lines, maps, and stories to represent corresponding features of objects, events, and processes in the real world.
4 S4CS4. b. Use geometric figures, number sequences, graphs, diagrams, sketches, number lines, maps, and stories to represent corresponding features of objects, events, and processes in the real world.
4 S4L2. identify factors that affect the survival or extinction of organisms such as adaptation, variation of behaviors (hibernation), and external features (camouflage and protection).
4 S4L2. a. Identify external features of organisms that allow them to survive or reproduce better than organisms that do not have these features (for example: camouflage, use of hibernation, protection, etc.).
5 S5CS4. b. Use geometric figures, number sequences, graphs, diagrams, sketches, number lines, maps, and stories to represent corresponding features of objects, events, and processes in the real world. Identify ways in which the representations do not match their ori
5 S5L1. classify organisms into groups and relate how they determined the groups with how and why scientists use classification.
5 S5L1. a. Demonstrate how animals are sorted into groups (vertebrate and invertebrate) and how vertebrates are sorted into groups (fish, amphibian, reptile, bird, and mammal).
5 S5L2. Students will recognize that offspring can resemble parents in inherited traits and learned behaviors.
5 S5L2. a. Compare and contrast the characteristics of learned behaviors and of inherited traits.
K SKCS2.a Use whole numbers for counting, identifying, and describing things and experiences.
K SKCS5.A Describe and compare things in terms of number, shape, texture, size, weight, color, and motion.
K SKL1. b Group animals according to their observable features such as appearance, size, motion, where it lives, etc. (Example: A green frog has four legs and hops. A rabbit also hops.)
K SKL2. Students will compare the similarities and differences in groups of organisms.
K SKL2. a Explain the similarities and differences in animals. (color, size, appearance, etc.)
K SKL2. c Recognize the similarities and differences between a parent and a baby.
K SKL2. d Match pictures of animal parents and their offspring explaining your reasoning. (Example: dog/puppy; cat/kitten; cow/calf; duck/ducklings, etc.)
K SSKCG2 The student will retell stories that illustrate positive character traits and will explain how the people in the stories show the qualities of honesty, patriotism, loyalty, courtesy, respect, truth, pride, self-control, moderation, and accomplishment.
