(1) Physical science content standards for first grade are that each student will:
(a) plan and conduct investigations to provide evidence that vibrating materials can make sound and that sound can cause materials to vibrate;
(b) make observations to construct an evidence-based explanation that objects can be seen only when illuminated;
(c) plan and conduct an investigation to determine the effect of placing objects made with different materials in the path of a beam of light; and
(d) design a solution or build a device that facilitates communication over distance using light or sound.
(2) Life science content standards for first grade are that each student will:
(a) use materials to design a solution to a human problem by mimicking plant and animal structures and functions that help them survive, grow, and meet their needs;
(b) use information from print and other media to identify patterns in behavior of parents and offspring that help offspring survive; and
(c) make an evidence-based explanation of how young plants and animals are like, but not exactly like, their parents.
(3) Earth and space science content standards for first grade are that each student will:
(a) use observations of the sun, moon, and stars to describe patterns that can be predicted; and
(b) make observations at different times of year to relate the amount of daylight to the time of year.
