This course was created to support your child's science knowledge and encourage exploration. In this course the following basic topics will be covered-animal movement, muscles, bones, body systems, fossils, speed, movement, materials, rocks, the Sun and the Moon. This 10 week course will be offered on the Outschool flex format so students can begin and end at their own pace since the lessons are pre-recorded. Each week parents will find an easy format, where they will be able to hit the...
The DK workbook covers all of the grade standards for first grade. Earth and Space Science S1E1. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate weather data to identify weather patterns. a. Represent data in tables and/or graphs to identify and describe different types of weather and the characteristics of each type. b. Ask questions to identify forms of precipitation such as rain, snow, sleet, and hailstones as either solid (ice) or liquid (water). c. Plan and carry out investigations on current weather conditions by observing, measuring with simple weather instruments (thermometer, wind vane, rain gauge), and recording weather data (temperature, precipitation, sky conditions, and weather events) in a periodic journal, on a calendar, and graphically. d. Analyze data to identify seasonal patterns of change. (Clarification statement: Examples could include temperature, rainfall/snowfall, and changes to the environment.) Physical Science S1P1. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to investigate light and sound. a. Use observations to construct an explanation of how light is required to make objects visible. b. Ask questions to identify and compare sources of light. c. Plan and carry out an investigation of shadows by placing objects at various points from a source of light. d. Construct an explanation supported by evidence that vibrating materials can make sound and that sound can make materials vibrate. e. Design a signal that can serve as an emergency alert using light and/or sound to communicate over a distance. S1P2. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to demonstrate the effects of magnets on other magnets and other objects. a. Construct an explanation of how magnets are used in everyday life. (Clarification statement: Everyday life uses could include refrigerator magnets, toys, magnetic latches, and name tags.) b. Plan and carry out an investigation to demonstrate how magnets attract and repel each other and the effect of magnets on common objects. Life Science S1L1. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about the basic needs of plants and animals. a. Develop models to identify the parts of a plant—root, stem, leaf, and flower. b. Ask questions to compare and contrast the basic needs of plants (air, water, light, and nutrients) and animals (air, water, food, and shelter). c. Design a solution to ensure that a plant or animal has all of its needs met

Please create a table of contents with the following topics. Then number the spiral notebook and put the week and topic on the top of the paper. Please leave a few papers in between each week so students will have lots of room to draw diagrams. Table Of Contents (pg 1) Week 1 Scientists & Living Things (pg 2-4) Week 2 Animal Movement (pg 5-7) Week 3 Plant Life (pg 8-10) Week 4 Body Systems (pg 11-13) Week 5 Eating Well (pg 14-16) Week 6 Food Chains (pg 17-19) Week 7 Dinosaurs & Extinct Animals (pg 20-22) Week 8 Measurement (pg 23-26) Week 9 Water Cycle & Weather (pg 27-30) Week 10 Sun & Moon (pg 31-35)
A final exam assessment will be provided at the end of the course, but it will be optional. Parents are encouraged to count this as a full first grade science credit. Students will receive a letter of completion at the end and a positive feedback note.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
