First Grade Science

(arranged by NGSS)

 
 

Life Sciences

Life Science Storyline - First grade students are expected to develop understanding of how plants and animals use their external parts to help them survive, grow, and meet their needs as well as how behaviors of parents and offspring help the offspring survive. The understanding is developed that young plants and animals are like, but not exactly the same as, their parents.

Historia de las ciencias de la vida: también se espera que los estudiantes de primer grado desarrollen la comprensión de cómo las plantas y los animales usan sus partes externas para ayudarlos a sobrevivir, crecer y satisfacer sus necesidades, así como cómo los comportamientos de los padres y la descendencia ayudan a la descendencia a sobrevivir. Se desarrolla la comprensión de que las plantas jóvenes y los animales son como sus padres, pero no exactamente iguales.

Structure, Function, and Information Processing

1-LS1-1

Use materials to design a solution to a human problem by mimicking how plants and/or animals use their external parts to help them survive, grow, and meet their needs.

1-LS1-2

Read texts and use media to determine patterns in behavior of parents and offspring that help offspring survive.

1-LS3-1

Make observations to construct an evidence-based account that young plants and animals are like, but not exactly like, their parents.

Earth and Space Science

Earth and Space Science Storyline - First grade students are able to observe, describe, and predict some patterns of the movement of objects in the sky.

Historia de las ciencias de la tierra y el espacio: los estudiantes de primer grado pueden observar, describir y predecir algunos patrones del movimiento de los objetos en el cielo.

Space Systems: Patterns and Cycles

1-ESS1-1

Use observations of the sun, moon, and stars to describe patterns that can be predicted.

 

1-ESS1-2

Make observations at different times of year to relate the amount of daylight to the time of year.

 

Physical Science

Physical Science Storyline - First grade students are expected to develop understanding of the relationship between sound and vibrating materials as well as between the availability of light and ability to see objects. The idea that light travels from place to place can be understood by students at this level through determining the effect of placing objects made with different materials in the path of a beam of light.

Historia de la ciencia física: se espera que los estudiantes de primer grado desarrollen la comprensión de la relación entre el sonido y los materiales vibrantes, así como entre la disponibilidad de luz y la capacidad de ver objetos. Los estudiantes de este nivel pueden entender la idea de que la luz viaja de un lugar a otro determinando el efecto de colocar objetos hechos con diferentes materiales en la trayectoria de un haz de luz.

Waves: Light and Sound

 

1-PS4-1

Plan and conduct investigations to provide evidence that vibrating materials can make sound and that sound can make materials vibrate.

 

1-PS4-2

Make observations to construct an evidence-based account that objects can be seen only when illuminated.

 

1-PS4-3

Plan and conduct an investigation to determine the effect of placing objects made with different materials in the path of a beam of light.

 

1-PS4-4

Use tools and materials to design and build a device that uses light or sound to solve the problem of communicating over a distance.

 

Engineering and Design

K-2-ETS1-1

Ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.

 

K-2-ETS1-2

Develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem.

 

K-2-ETS1-3

Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how each performs.
