|Florida Standards (NGSSS):||Nature of Science (N): SC.K.N.1.2: Make observations of the natural world and know that they are descriptors collected using the five senses. SC.K.N.1.3: Keep records as appropriate ‐‐ such as pictorial records ‐‐ of investigations conducted. SC.1.N.1.2: Using the five senses as tools, make careful observations, describe objects in terms of number, shape, texture, size, weight, color, and motion, and compare their observations with others. SC.1.N.1.3: Keep records as appropriate ‐ such as pictorial and written records ‐ of investigations conducted. SC.3.N.1.3: Keep records as appropriate, such as pictorial, written, or simple charts and graphs, of investigations conducted. SC.3.N.1.7: Explain that empirical evidence is information, such as observations or measurements, that is used to help validate explanations of natural phenomena. Other (P, L, E): SC.K.P.8.1: Sort objects by observable properties, such as size, shape, color, temperature (hot or cold), weight (heavy or light) and texture. SC.1.L.14.1: Make observations of living things and their environment using the five senses. SC.1.L.14.3: Differentiate between living and nonliving things. SC.1.P.8.1: Sort objects by observable properties, such as size, shape, color, temperature (hot or cold), weight (heavy or light), texture, and whether objects sink or float. SC.2.E.6.2: Describe how small pieces of rock and dead plant and animal parts can be the basis of soil and explain the process by which soil is formed. SC.2.E.6.3: Classify soil types based on color, texture (size of particles), the ability to retain water, and the ability to support the growth of plants. SC.3.P.8.2: Measure and compare the mass and volume of solids and liquids. SC.3.P.8.3: Compare materials and objects according to properties such as size, shape, color, texture, and hardness. MA or other standard: MA.K.G.2.1: Describe, sort and re‐sort objects using a variety of attributes such as shape, size, and position. MA.1.G.5.2: Compare and order objects according to descriptors of length, weight, and capacity.|
