1,2 S 1-2:6 Sorting and classifying objects based upon observations, prior knowledge, or experience and justifying groupings.
1,2 S1-2:46.1 Observing, describing and comparing color and texture of different types of rocks and soils.
1,2 S1-2:46.2a. Earth materials are solid rocks and soils.
1,2 S1-2:49 Identifying the natural sources of the food that is consumed on a daily basis (e.g., Bread-- wheatãflour; Sapãmaple syrup; Pastureãmeat and dairy).
1,2 S1-2:49a. Most food comes from farms either directly as crops or through the animals that eat the crops.
1,2 S1-2:9 Identifying, recording, and comparing characteristics of objects made of similar and different properties.
1,2 S1-2:9b. Similarities and differences in physical properties can be identified.
2,3 S3-4:46 Observing, identifying and comparing components of soils and rocks.
2,3 S3-4:46.1 Recognizing and identifying the four basic materials of the earth (i.e., rocks, soil, water, and gases).
2,3 S3-4:46.2 Observing and comparing the properties of rocks.
2,3 S3-4:46.2b. Earth materials are solid rocks, soils, water and the gases of the atmosphere.
2,3 S3-4:46.2c. Rock is composed of different combinations of minerals. Large rocks can be broken down into small rocks.
2,3 S3-4:46.2d. Rocks have properties of color, texture and hardness. Rocks can be classified by their physical properties.
2,3 S3-4:49 the properties of living and non-living resources make them suitable for use by humans.
2,3 S3-4:49a. The varied earth materials have different physical and chemical properties which make them useful in different ways, for example, as building materials, as sources of fuel, for growing the plants we use as food, or supporting animal life. Earth materials
2,3 S3-4:49b. Earth materials have chemical and physical properties that make them useful as building materials, for growing plants, or for fuel.
2,3 S3-4:5a Classifying objects and phenomena into sets and subsets and justifying groupings.
PK-K H&SSPK-K:5b Analyzing evidence (e.g., sorting objects, justifying groupings, role playing).
PK-K SPK-K:46 Sorting and recognizing similarities and differences in a variety of rocks (from boulders to grains of sand).
PK-K SPK-K:46a. Chunks of rocks come in many sizes and shapes, from boulders to grains of sand and even smaller.
PK-K SPK-K:49 items that students consume on a daily basis: food, fiber, paper, wool or wood).
PK-K SPK-K:49a. Natural Resources are materials that we obtain from the living and non-living environment.
PK-K SPK-K:6 Sorting objects based upon current observations and justifying groupings.
PK-K SPK-K:9b Objects can be sorted according to their properties.
