Science concepts (from TEKS)
Scientific Processes. The student conducts classroom and field investigations following home and school safety procedures. The student is expected to (1.1):
    demonstrate safe practices during classroom and field investigations (1.1A)
    learn how to use and conserve resources and materials (1.1B)
Scientific Processes. The student develops abilities necessary to do scientific inquiry in the field and the classroom. The student is expected to (1.2):
    ask questions about organisms, objects and events (1.2A)
    plan and conduct simple descriptive investigations (1.2B)
    gather information using simple equipment and tools to extend the senses (1.2C)
    construct reasonable explanations and draw conclusions (1.2D)
    communicate explanations about investigations (1.2E)
Scientific Processes. The student knows that information and critical thinking are used in making decisions. The student is expected to (1.3):
    make decisions using information (1.3A)
    discuss and justify the merits of decisions (1.3B)
    explain a problem in his/her own words and identify a task and solution related to the problem (1.3C)
Scientific Processes. The student uses age- appropriate tools and models to verify that organisms and objects and parts of organisms and objects can be observed, described, and measured. The student is expected to (1.4):
    collect information using tools including hand lenses, clocks, computers, thermometers, and balances (1.4A)
    record and compare collected information (1.4B)
    measure organisms and objects and parts of organisms and objects, using non-standard units such as paper clips, hand, and pencils (1.4C)
Science Concepts. The student knows that organisms, objects, and events have properties and patterns. The student is expected to (1.5):
    sort objects and events based on properties and patterns (1.5A)
    identify, predict, and create patterns including those seen in charts, graphs, and numbers (1.5B)
Science Concepts. The student knows that systems have parts and are composed of organisms and objects. The student is expected to (1.6):
    sort organisms and objects according to their parts and characteristics (1.6A)
    observe and describe the parts of plants and animals (1.6B)
    manipulate objects such as toys, vehicles, or construction sets so that the parts are separated from the whole which may result in the part or the whole not working (1.6C)
    identify parts that, when put together, can do things they cannot do by themselves, such as a working camera with film, a car moving with a motor, and an airplane flying with fuel (1.6D)
Science Concepts. The student knows that many types of change occur. The student is expected to (1.7):
    observe, measure, and record changes in size, mass, color, position, quantity, sound, and movement (1.7A)
    identify and test ways that heat may cause change such as when ice melts (1.7B)
    observe and record changes in weather from day to day and over seasons (1.7C)
    observe and record changes in the life cycle of organisms (1.7D)

Science Concepts. The student distinguishes between living organisms and nonliving objects. The student is expected to: (1.8):

    group living organisms and objects and nonliving objects (1.8A)
    compare living organisms and nonliving objects (1.8B)
Science Concepts. The student knows that living organisms have basic needs. The student is expected to (1.9):
    identify characteristics of living organisms that allow their basic needs to be met (1.9A)
    compare and give examples of the ways organisms depend on each other for their basic needs (1.9B)
Science Concepts. The student knows that the natural world includes rocks, soil, and water. The student is expected to (1.10):
    identify and describe a variety of natural sources of water including streams, lakes, and oceans (1.10A)
    observe and describe differences in rocks and soil samples (1.10B)
    identify how rocks, soil, and water are used and how they can be recycled (1.10C)
