Sciences

First Level


I can distinguish between living and non living things. I can sort living things into groups and explain my decisions.

SCN 1-01a

I can explore examples of food chains and show an appreciation of how animals and plants depend on each other for food.

SCN 1-02a

I can help to design experiments to find out what plants need in order to grow and develop. I can observe and record my findings and from what I have learned I can grow healthy plants in school.

SCN 1-03a

I am aware of different types of energy around me and can show their importance to everyday life and my survival.

SCN 1-04a

By investigating how water can change from one form to another, I can relate my findings to everyday experiences.

SCN 1-05a

By safely observing and recording the sun and moon at various times, I can describe their patterns of movement and changes over time. I can relate these to the length of a day, a month and a year.

SCN 1-06a

By investigating forces on toys and other objects, I can predict the effect on the shape or motion of objects.

SCN 1-07a

By exploring the forces exerted by magnets on other magnets and magnetic materials, I can contribute to the design of a game.

SCN 1-08a

I can describe an electrical circuit as a continuous loop of conducting materials. I can combine simple components in a series circuit to make a game or model.

SCN 1-09a

By collaborating in experiments on different ways of producing sound from vibrations, I can demonstrate how to change the pitch of the sound.

SCN 1-11a

By researching, I can describe the position and function of the skeleton and major organs of the human body and discuss what I need to do to keep them healthy.

SCN 1-12a

I have explored my senses and can discuss their reliability and limitations in responding to the environment.

SCN 1-12b

I know the symptoms of some common diseases caused by germs. I can explain how they are spread and discuss how some methods of preventing and treating disease benefit society.

SCN 1-13a

By comparing generations of families of humans, plants and animals, I can begin to understand how characteristics are inherited.

SCN 1-14a

Through exploring properties and sources of materials, I can choose appropriate materials to solve practical challenges.

SCN 1-15a

I can make and test predictions about solids dissolving in water and can relate my findings to the world around me.

SCN 1-16a
