Content Area: Science
Topic: Life Science for Early Childhood
Pre-K- Grade 12 Organizer: Characteristics and Structure of Life
Indicator: 1. Identify common needs (e.g., food, air, water) of familiar living things.
Indicator: 2. Begin to differentiate between real and pretend through stories, illustrations, play and other media (e.g., talking flowers or animals).
Pre-K- Grade 12 Organizer: Diversity and Interdependence of Life
Indicator: 3. Observe and begin to recognize the ways that environments support life by meeting the unique needs of each organism (e.g., plant/soil, birds/air, fish/water).
Pre-K- Grade 12 Organizer: Heredity
Indicator: 5. Recognize physical differences among the same class of people, plants or animals (e.g., dogs come in many sizes and colors).
Topic: Scientific Inquiry for Early Childhood
Pre-K- Grade 12 Organizer: Doing Scientific Inquiry
Indicator: 1. Ask questions about objects, organisms and events in their environment dur-ing shared stories, conversations and play (e.g., ask about how worms eat).
Indicator: 2. Show interest in investigating unfamiliar objects, organisms and phenomena during shared stories, conversations and play (e.g., “Where does hail come from?”).
Indicator: 4. Investigate natural laws acting upon objects, events and organisms (e.g., repeatedly dropping objects to observe the laws of gravity, observing the life cycle of in-sects).
Indicator: 6. Explore objects, organisms and events using simple equipment (e.g., mag-nets and magnifiers, standard and non-standard measuring tools).
Indicator: 7. Begin to make comparisons between objects or organisms based on their characteristics (e.g., animals with four legs, smooth and rough rocks).
Indicator: 8. Record or represent and communicate observations and findings through a variety of methods (e.g., pictures, words, graphs, dramatizations) with assistance.
Topic: Scientific Ways of Knowing for Early Childhood
Pre-K- Grade 12 Organizer: Nature of Science
Indicator: 1. Offer ideas and explanations (through drawings, emergent writing, conversation, movement) of objects, organisms and phenomena, which may be correct or incorrect.
