Science Competencies and Learning Targets for Grade 1 in 2017-2018


Science

WAVES: LIGHT AND SOUND

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

▪ Plan and conduct an investigation to determine the effect of placing objects made with different materials in the

path of a beam of light.

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

make materials vibrate.

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

over a distance.*

STRUCTURE, FUNCTION, AND INFORMATION PROCESSING

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

like, their parents.

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

▪ 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.*

SPACE SYSTEMS: PATTERNS AND CYCLES

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

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

ENGINEERING DESIGN

▪ Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and

weaknesses of how each performs.

▪ 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.

▪ 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.
