Science- Getting Ready 6. Scientific progress is made by asking meaningful questions and conducting careful investigations. Big Idea: Your observations can give you ideas for experiments. To plan and carry out an experiment, scientists ask certain questions. They choose the right tools for finding the answers.
Science- Unit 1: Elements and Compounds 1. Elements and their combinations account for all the varied types of matter in the world. Big Idea: There are more than 100 different kinds of matter called elements. When these elements combine in different ways, they form all the other types of matter, including living things.
Science- Unit 2: Structures of Living Things 2. Plants and animals have structures for respiration, digestion, waste disposal, and transport of materials. Big Idea: Plants and animals have structures for getting oxygen, digesting food, getting rid of wastes, and transporting material.
Science- Unit 3: The Water Cycle 3. Water on Earth moves between the oceans and land through the processes of evaporation and condensation. Big Idea: Water on Earth moves from the oceans to the land by the processes of evaporation and condensation.
Science- Unit 4: Weather 4. Energy from the Sun heats Earth unevenly. This causes air movements that result in changes in the weather. Big Idea: Energy from the Sun heats the Earth unevenly. This causes air movements that result in changes in the weather.
Science- Unit 5: The Solar System 5. The solar system consists of planets and other bodies that orbit the Sun in predictable paths. Big Idea: The solar system consists of planets and other objects that orbit the sun along certain paths.
