WA.4.Life Science

Life Science
ES1. Earth in Space (ES1)
2-3.ES1. The Sun's Daily Motion: In prior grades students learned that some of the objects they see in the sky change from minute to minute, while other things can be seen to follow patterns of movement if observed carefully over time. In grades 2-3 students learn that carefully observing and recording shadows provides an excellent way to trace the daily apparent movement of the Sun through the sky, which extends their observational skills. In later years, students will use this knowledge to realize that the Sun's apparent movement reflects Earth's daily spin on its axis.
2-3.ES1A. Students know that outdoor shadows are longest during the morning and evening and shortest during the middle of the day. These changes in the length and direction of an object's shadow indicate the changing position of the Sun during the day.
2-3.ES1A.1. Students are expected to mark the position of shadows cast by a stick over the course of a few hours, and infer how the Sun has appeared to move during that time.
Flip Charts Sun & Shadows
 
2-3.ES1A.2. Students are expected to observe that the length of shadows is shortest at about noon, and infer that this is because the Sun is highest in the sky (but not directly overhead) at about that time.

ES2. Earth Systems, Structures, and Processes (ES2)
2-3.ES2. Water and Weather: In prior years, students learned about Earth materials through their own observations. In grades 2-3 students learn that water exists in various locations and plays an essential role in Earth systems, including shaping land forms and weather. Weather changes from day to day, and weather conditions can be described by measurable quantities, such as temperature and rainfall. Environments can be affected by natural causes. Some of these changes are gradual and some are rapid. Water is essential for life, but it can also be destructive when too much is deposited too rapidly.
2-3.ES2A. Students know that water plays an essential role in Earth systems, including shaping landforms.
2-3.ES2A.1. Students are expected to identify where natural water bodies occur in the students' local environment.

LS1. Structures and Functions of Living Organisms (LS1)
2-3.LS1. Life Cycles: In prior grades students learned that living things have basic needs and they meet those needs in various ways. In grades 2-3 students learn that all plants and animals have life cycles. They also compare the life cycles of a few common animals to see how they are similar and how they are different, and learn about the life cycles of plants. Focus should be on observable characteristics of how plants and animals change over time. An important aspect of life cycles is that plants and animals resemble their parents. This is a first step in understanding how the structures of plants and animals develop and function.
2-3.LS1A. Students know that plants have life cycles that include sprouting, growing to full size, forming fruits and flowers, shedding seeds (which begins a new cycle), and eventually dying. The details of the life cycle are different for different plants.
2-3.LS1A.1. Students are expected to describe the life cycle of a common type of plant (e.g., the growth of a fast-growing plant from seed to sprout, to adult, to fruits, flowers, and seeds).

LS2. Ecosystems (LS2)
2-3.LS2. Changes in Ecosystems: In prior grades students learned that all plants and animals live in and depend on habitats. In grades 2-3 students learn that ecosystems include plant and animal populations as well as nonliving resources. Plants and animals depend both on each other and on the nonliving resources in their ecosystem to survive. Ecosystems can change through both natural causes and human activities. These changes might be good or bad for the plants and animals that live in the ecosystem, or have no effect. Humans can protect the health of ecosystems in a number of ways.
2-3.LS2A. Students know that ecosystems support all life on the planet, including human life, by providing food, fresh water, and breathable air.
2-3.LS2A.1. Students are expected to identify at least four ways that ecosystems support life (e.g., by providing fresh water, generating oxygen, removing toxic pollutants, and providing sources of useful materials).

PS1. Force and Motion (PS1)
2-3.PS1. Force Makes Things Move: In prior grades students learned to use appropriate words to describe the position and motion of objects and the effects of forces on objects. In grades 2-3 students learn that forces work not only to push and pull objects, but also affect objects when they are dropped or thrown. Whenever the motion of an object changes, there is a force involved. Greater forces on a given object result in greater changes of motion. In addition to being able to describe how forces change the motion of objects, students are expected to measure the position of objects using measuring instruments such as rulers. Students can also measure time to the nearest minute. Emphasis should be on comparisons of forces and motions rather than on calculation so that students develop conceptual understanding of how forces make things move.
2-3.PS1A. Students know that motion can be described as a change in position over a period of time.
2-3.PS1A.1. Students are expected to give an example to illustrate motion as a change in position over a period of time (e.g., if a student stands near the door and then moves to his/her seat, the student is "in motion" during that time).

PS2. Matter: Properties and Change (PS2)
2-3.PS2. Properties of Materials: In prior grades students learned about liquids and solids. In grades 2-3 students learn to identify different physical properties of materials (matter) and to realize that an object may be made from several different types of materials. They also learn that properties of materials change when environmental conditions change. Water, for example, changes to a solid when the temperature drops below 0 degrees Celsius. Although few students at this age will fully understand that water may change to an invisible gas (e.g., water vapor) when left in an open container overnight, they can start to become familiar with changes of state by observing ice cubes freeze and then melt, and seeing water turn to steam when heated. Looking closely at matter to describe its characteristics will eventually lead to understanding the basic nature of matter and its physical and chemical properties.
2-3.PS2A. Students know that objects have properties, including size, weight, hardness, color, shape, texture, and magnetism. Unknown substances can sometimes be identified by their properties.
2-3.PS2A.1. Students are expected to list several properties of an object.

LS1. Structures and Functions of Living Organisms (LS1)
2-3.LS1. Life Cycles: In prior grades students learned that living things have basic needs and they meet those needs in various ways. In grades 2-3 students learn that all plants and animals have life cycles. They also compare the life cycles of a few common animals to see how they are similar and how they are different, and learn about the life cycles of plants. Focus should be on observable characteristics of how plants and animals change over time. An important aspect of life cycles is that plants and animals resemble their parents. This is a first step in understanding how the structures of plants and animals develop and function.
2-3.LS1A. Students know that plants have life cycles that include sprouting, growing to full size, forming fruits and flowers, shedding seeds (which begins a new cycle), and eventually dying. The details of the life cycle are different for different plants.
2-3.LS1A.1. Students are expected to describe the life cycle of a common type of plant (e.g., the growth of a fast-growing plant from seed to sprout, to adult, to fruits, flowers, and seeds).

LS2. Ecosystems (LS2)
2-3.LS2. Changes in Ecosystems: In prior grades students learned that all plants and animals live in and depend on habitats. In grades 2-3 students learn that ecosystems include plant and animal populations as well as nonliving resources. Plants and animals depend both on each other and on the nonliving resources in their ecosystem to survive. Ecosystems can change through both natural causes and human activities. These changes might be good or bad for the plants and animals that live in the ecosystem, or have no effect. Humans can protect the health of ecosystems in a number of ways.
2-3.LS2A. Students know that ecosystems support all life on the planet, including human life, by providing food, fresh water, and breathable air.
2-3.LS2A.1. Students are expected to identify at least four ways that ecosystems support life (e.g., by providing fresh water, generating oxygen, removing toxic pollutants, and providing sources of useful materials).

PS1. Force and Motion (PS1)
2-3.PS1. Force Makes Things Move: In prior grades students learned to use appropriate words to describe the position and motion of objects and the effects of forces on objects. In grades 2-3 students learn that forces work not only to push and pull objects, but also affect objects when they are dropped or thrown. Whenever the motion of an object changes, there is a force involved. Greater forces on a given object result in greater changes of motion. In addition to being able to describe how forces change the motion of objects, students are expected to measure the position of objects using measuring instruments such as rulers. Students can also measure time to the nearest minute. Emphasis should be on comparisons of forces and motions rather than on calculation so that students develop conceptual understanding of how forces make things move.
2-3.PS1A. Students know that motion can be described as a change in position over a period of time.
2-3.PS1A.1. Students are expected to give an example to illustrate motion as a change in position over a period of time (e.g., if a student stands near the door and then moves to his/her seat, the student is "in motion" during that time).

PS2. Matter: Properties and Change (PS2)
2-3.PS2. Properties of Materials: In prior grades students learned about liquids and solids. In grades 2-3 students learn to identify different physical properties of materials (matter) and to realize that an object may be made from several different types of materials. They also learn that properties of materials change when environmental conditions change. Water, for example, changes to a solid when the temperature drops below 0 degrees Celsius. Although few students at this age will fully understand that water may change to an invisible gas (e.g., water vapor) when left in an open container overnight, they can start to become familiar with changes of state by observing ice cubes freeze and then melt, and seeing water turn to steam when heated. Looking closely at matter to describe its characteristics will eventually lead to understanding the basic nature of matter and its physical and chemical properties.
2-3.PS2A. Students know that objects have properties, including size, weight, hardness, color, shape, texture, and magnetism. Unknown substances can sometimes be identified by their properties.
2-3.PS2A.1. Students are expected to list several properties of an object.

WA.4.Physical Science

Physical Science
ES1. Earth in Space (ES1)
2-3.ES1. The Sun's Daily Motion: In prior grades students learned that some of the objects they see in the sky change from minute to minute, while other things can be seen to follow patterns of movement if observed carefully over time. In grades 2-3 students learn that carefully observing and recording shadows provides an excellent way to trace the daily apparent movement of the Sun through the sky, which extends their observational skills. In later years, students will use this knowledge to realize that the Sun's apparent movement reflects Earth's daily spin on its axis.
2-3.ES1A. Students know that outdoor shadows are longest during the morning and evening and shortest during the middle of the day. These changes in the length and direction of an object's shadow indicate the changing position of the Sun during the day.
2-3.ES1A.1. Students are expected to mark the position of shadows cast by a stick over the course of a few hours, and infer how the Sun has appeared to move during that time.
Flip Charts Sun & Shadows
 
2-3.ES1A.2. Students are expected to observe that the length of shadows is shortest at about noon, and infer that this is because the Sun is highest in the sky (but not directly overhead) at about that time.
Flip Charts Sun & Shadows
 
2-3.ES1A.3. Students are expected to explain how shadows could be used to tell the time of day.

ES2. Earth Systems, Structures, and Processes (ES2)
2-3.ES2. Water and Weather: In prior years, students learned about Earth materials through their own observations. In grades 2-3 students learn that water exists in various locations and plays an essential role in Earth systems, including shaping land forms and weather. Weather changes from day to day, and weather conditions can be described by measurable quantities, such as temperature and rainfall. Environments can be affected by natural causes. Some of these changes are gradual and some are rapid. Water is essential for life, but it can also be destructive when too much is deposited too rapidly.
2-3.ES2A. Students know that water plays an essential role in Earth systems, including shaping landforms.
2-3.ES2A.1. Students are expected to identify where natural water bodies occur in the students' local environment.
