SubjectGrade LevelsBroad Standard ReferenceSpecific Standard CodeSpecific Standard NameSpecific Wording of Standard
Health Education3Injury PreventionH1.Sa1.3a--Identify ways to prevent injuries at home, at school, and in the community.
Health Education3Injury PreventionH1.Sa1.3b--Create emergency, fire, and safety plans for home.
Health Education4Injury PreventionH7.Sa1.4--Describe practices and behaviors that promote safety and reduce or prevent injuries.
NGSS Physical Sciences4Energy4-ESS3-1--Obtain and combine information to describe that energy and fuels are derived from natural resources and their uses affect the environment.
NGSS Physical Sciences4Energy4-PS3-4Energy in Chemical Processes and Everyday LifeThe expression "produce energy" typically refers to the conversion of stored energy into a desired form for practical use.
NGSS Physical Sciences4EnergyESS3.ANatural ResourcesEnergy and fuels that humans use are derived from natural sources, and their use affects the environment in multiple ways. Some resources are renewable over time, and others are not.
Health Education5Injury PreventionH1.Sa1.5a--Identify dangerous or risky behaviors that might lead to injuries.
NGSS Physical Sciences5Structure and Properties of Matter5-PS1-1--Develop a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen.
NGSS Physical Sciences5Structure and Properties of Matter5-PS1-4--Conduct an investigation collaboratively to produce data to serve as the basis for evidence, using fair tests in which variables are controlled and the number of trials considered.
NGSS Physical Sciences5Structure and Properties of Matter5-PS1-A--Matter of any type can be subdivided into particles that are too small to see, but even then the matter still exists and can be detected by other means. A model showing that gases are made from matter particles that are too small to see and are moving freely around in space can explain many observations, including the inflation and shape of a balloon; the effects of air on larger particles or objects.
NGSS Physical Sciences6Structure and Properties of Matter06-PS1-4--In a liquid, the molecules are constantly in contact with others; in a gas, they are widely spaced except when they happen to collide. In a solid, atoms are closely spaced and may vibrate in position but do not change relative locations.
NGSS Physical Sciences6Structure and Properties of Matter06-PS1-4--Gases and liquids are made of molecules or inert atoms that are moving about relative to each other.
