Kindergarten Science Standards

Quarter 1 Standards:
  1. K.1S.C1.PO3: I can predict results of an investigation based on life, physical, and earth and space sciences (e.g., the five senses, changes in weather).

  2. K.1S.C2.PO1: I can demonstrate safe behavior and appropriate procedures (e.g., use of instruments, materials, organisms) in all science inquiry. 

  3. K.1S.C2.PO3: I can perform simple measurements using non-standard units of measure to collect data. 

  4. K.1S.C3.PO2: I can compare objects according to their measurable characteristics (e.g., longer/shorter, lighter/heavier). 

  5. K.1S.C4.PO2: I can communicate with other groups to describe the results of an investigation. 

  6. K.2S.C1.PO1: I can give examples of how diverse people (e.g., children, parents, weather reporters, cooks, healthcare workers, gardeners) use science in daily life. 

  7. K.2S.C1.PO2: I can identify how diverse people and/or cultures, past and present, have made important contributions to scientific innovations (e.g., Jane Goodall [scientist], Louis Braille [inventor]. 

  8. K.4S.C1.PO1: I can tell the difference between things that are alive and things that are not. 

  9. K.4S.C1.PO2: I can name the following human body parts: head, legs, shoulders, hips, wrists, feet, fingers, arms, knees, elbows, ankles, hands, heels, toes. 

  10. K.4S.C1.PO3: I can find and name the five senses and the body parts. 

  1. K.6S.C3.PO1: I can identify the following aspects of weather: temperature, wind, precipitation, storms. 

  2. K.6S.C3.PO2: I can describe observable changes in weather. 

  3. K.6S.C3.PO3: I can give examples of how the weather affects people's daily activities. 

Quarter 2 Standards:
  1. K.4S.C2.PO1: I can tell that plants and animals will grow to look like their parents. 

  2. K.4S.C3.PO1: I can identify some plants and animals that exist in the local environment. 

  3. K.4S.C3.PO2: I can find and name things that plants and animals need to grow and survive.​​​​​​​

  4. K.4S.C3.PO3: I can describe changes observed in a small system (e.g., ant farm, plant terrarium, aquarium). 

Quarter 3 Standards:
  1. K.3S.C2.PO1: I can tell how simple tools can make jobs easier. 

  2. K.5S.C1.PO2: I can compare objects by the following observable properties: size, color, type of material.

  3. K.5S.C3.PO1: I can explore how things move. 

  4. K.5S.C3.PO2: I can explore how things move without another living thing touching them. 

  5. K.5S.C3.PO3: I can sort materials according to whether they are or are not attracted by a magnet.

  6. K.5S.C3.PO4: I can identify familiar everyday uses of magnets (e.g., in toys, cabinet locks, decoration).

  7. K.6S.C1.PO1: I can find and name earth materials (continues into Quarter 4). ​​​​​​​

Quarter 4 Standards:
  1. K.6S.C1.PO2: I can compare physical properties (e.g., color, texture, capacity to retain water) of basic earth materials.

  2. K.6S.C1.PO3: I can classify a variety of objects as being natural or man-made. 

  3. K.6S.C1.PO4: I can identify ways some natural or man-made materials can be reused or recycled (e.g., efficient use of paper, recycle aluminum cans). 

Yearly Standards (taught throughout the school year):
  1. K.1S.C1.PO1: I can explore objects using different senses.

  2. K.1S.C1.PO2: I can ask questions based on experiences with objects, organisms, and events in the environment.​​​​​​​

  3. K.1S.C2.PO2: I can join in science experiments.

  4. K.1S.C3.PO1: I can group things in different ways.

  5. K.1S.C4.PO1: I can use pictographs, pictures, models or words to show my observations.

  6. K.5S.C1.PO1: I can use my senses to find and name an object's shape, texture, size or color.
