The Nature of Science and Engineering
3.1.1. The Practice of Science 184.108.40.206. The student will understand that scientific inquiry is a set of interrelated processes incorporating multiple approaches that are used to pose questions about the natural world and investigate phenomena. 220.127.116.11.4. Construct reasonable explanations based on evidence collected from observations or experiments.
3.1.3. Interactions Among Science, Technology Engineering, Mathematics, and Society 18.104.22.168. The student will understand that men and women throughout the history of all cultures, including Minnesota American Indian tribes and communities, have been involved in engineering design and scientific inquiry. 22.214.171.124.1. Understand that everybody can use evidence to learn about the natural world, identify patterns in nature, and develop tools.
126.96.36.199.2. Recognize that the practice of science and/or engineering involves many different kinds of work and engages men and women of all ages and backgrounds.
188.8.131.52. The student will understand that tools and mathematics help scientists and engineers see more, measure more accurately, and do things that they could not otherwise accomplish. 184.108.40.206.1. Use tools, including rulers, thermometers, magnifiers and simple balances, to improve observations and keep a record of the observations made.
3.2.3. Energy 220.127.116.11. The student will understand that energy appears in different forms, including sound and light. 18.104.22.168.1. Explain the relationship between the pitch of a sound, the rate of vibration of the source and factors that affect pitch. Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game & Study Guide Sound
22.214.171.124.3. Describe how light travels in a straight line until it is absorbed, redirected, reflected or allowed to pass through an object.
MN.3.3.Earth and Space Science
3.3.3. The Universe 126.96.36.199. The student will understand that the sun and moon have locations and movements that can be observed and described. 188.8.131.52.1. Observe and describe the daily and seasonal changes in the position of the sun and compare observations.
184.108.40.206.2. Recognize the pattern of apparent changes in the moon's shape and position.
220.127.116.11. The student will understand that objects in the solar system are seen from Earth as points of light with distinctive patterns of motion. 18.104.22.168.1. Demonstrate how a large light source at a great distance looks like a small light that is much closer.
22.214.171.124.2. Recognize that the Earth is one of several planets that orbit the sun, and that the moon orbits the Earth.
3.4.1. Structure and Function in Living Systems 126.96.36.199. The student will understand that living things are diverse with many different characteristics that enable them to grow, reproduce and survive. 188.8.131.52.1. Compare how the different structures of plants and animals serve various functions of growth, survival and reproduction. Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game & Study Guide Animals Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game & Study Guide Plants
184.108.40.206.2. Identify common groups of plants and animals using observable physical characteristics, structures and behaviors. Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game & Study Guide Animals
3.4.3. Evolution in Living Systems 220.127.116.11. The student will understand that offspring are generally similar to their parents, but may have variations that can be advantageous or disadvantageous in a particular environment. 18.104.22.168.1. Give examples of likenesses between adults and offspring in plants and animals that can be inherited or acquired.
