Lessons Covered and Process Standards:

1st Quarter
Observe and Measure:
P1.: Identify change before and after event by identifying qualitative and/or quantitative changes given conditions such as, temperature, mass, volume, time, position and length.
P1.2 Measurement tools: Use appropriate tools such as, metric ruler, graduated cylinder, thermometer, balances, spring scales and stop watches when measuring objects, organisms and/or events.
P1.3: SI Units: Use appropriate System Internation (SI) units such as, grams, meters, liters, degrees celcius seconds. Use SI prefixes such as, micro-, milli-, centi-, and kilo- when measuring objects, organisms and/or events.
Classify:
P2.1: Classification system: Using observable properties, place an object, organism, and/or event into a classification system (Dichotomous key.)
P2.2: Identify properties for classification: Identify properties for which a set of objects, organsims, and/or events can be ordered.
Experiment:
P3.2: Evaluate experiments: Evaluate the design of scientific evaluation.
P3.3: Identify variables and/or controls in an experimental setup: independent (tested/experimental) variable and dependent (measured) variable.
P3.4: Identify hypothesis: Identify a testable hypothesis for an experiment.
P3.5: Design Experiments: Design and conduct experiments.
Interpret and Communicate:
P4.1: Report Graphs: Report data in an appropriate method when given an experimental procedure or date.
P4.2: Interpret Graphs: Interpret data tables, line, bar, trend and/or circle graphs.
P4.3: Evaluate Data: Develop reasonable explanations and/or predictions.
P.4.4: Accept or Reject Hypothesis: when given results of an investigation accept or reject the hypothesis.
P4.5: Communicate Scientific procedures: explanation
Inquiry:
P5.1: Observation: Use systematic observations, make accurate measurements and identify and control variables.
P5.2: Technology: Use technology to gather data and analyze results of investigation.
P5.3: Review data: Review data, summerize data and form logical conclusions.
P5.4: Explain evidence: Formulate and evaluate explanations proposed by examining and comparing evidence, pointing out statements that go beyond evidence and suggesting alternative explanations.
Science Safety:
P3.6: Safety: Recognize potential hazards and practice safety procedures in all science activities.
SI Unit:
P1.3: SI Units: Previously stated
Lab Tools:
P1.2: Measurement tools: Previously stated
El Nino and La Nina:
C4.3: Gravity: The force that governs the motion of the solar system and holds us to the earth's surface.
Motion and Forces:
C2.1: Classification System: Using observable properties, place an object, organism, and/or event into a classification system.
C2.2: Force: An object that is not being subjected to a net force will continue to move at a constant velocity (in a straight line and a constant speed.)

2nd Quarter:
Gravity, Friction and Pressure:
C4.3: Gravity is the force that governs the motion of the solar system and holds us to the earth's surface.
Atomic Structure/Periodic Table:
C1.1: Chemical Properties and Change: Substances react chemically with each other sunstances to form new substances to form new substances with differenct characteristcs such as, rusting, burning and reaction between  baking soda and vinegar.
Chemical Bonds and Compounds:
C1.2:  Physical Properties and Changes: Matter has physical properties that can be measured by mass, volume, temperature, color, texture, denisty and hardness.  In chemical reactions and physical changes, matter is conserved (compare and contrast physical and chemical changes.
Chemical Reactions:
P1.1:  Identify changes before and after event:  Identify qualitiative and/or quantitative changes given conditions such as, temperature, mass, volume, time, position and length before, during and after an event.

3rd Quarter:
Minerals:
C4.2: Interpret graphs: Interpret data tables, line, bar trend and/or circle graphs.
Rocks:
C4.2:  Previously stated
Weathering and Soil Formation:

Plate Tectonics:
C4.1: Peviously stated
Earthquakes:
C5.1: Catastrophic Events: Earth's history has been punctuated by occasional catastrophic events, such as the impact of asteroids or comets, enormous volcanic eruptions, periods of continental glaciation, and the rise and fall of sea level.
