Classification of Materials; Material Properties and Purposes; OHLearning StandardsKindergartenK.PS.1.aObjects can be sorted and described by the properties of the materials from which they are made. Some of the properties can include color, size and texture.1
Parts of a Plant; External Animal Parts; OHLearning StandardsKindergartenK.LS.2.aLiving things are made up of a variety of structures. Some traits can be observable structures. Some of these structures and behaviors influence their survival.1
Fossils & Extinction;OHLearning StandardsGrade 22.LS.2.aSome kinds of organisms become extinct when their basic needs are no longer met or the environment changes.1
Gravity Pulls Things Down; OHLearning StandardsGrade 22.PS.1.cSome forces act without touching, such as using a magnet to move an object or objects falling to the ground.1
Habitats; OHLearning StandardsGrade 11.LS.2.aResources are necessary to meet the needs of an individual and populations of individuals. Living things interact with their physical environments as they meet those needs. Effects of seasonal changes within the local environment directly impact the availability of resources.1
Heating and Cooling; OHLearning StandardsGrade 11.PS.1.aObjects and materials change when exposed to various conditions, such as heating or cooling. Changes in temperature are a result of changes in energy. Not all materials change in the same way.1
Introduction to Sound; OHLearning StandardsKindergartenK.PS.2.aSound is produced by touching, blowing or tapping objects. The sounds that are produced vary depending on the properties of objects. Sound is produced when objects vibrate.1
Introduction to Weather;OHLearning StandardsKindergartenK.ESS.1.aWeather changes occur throughout the day and from day to day.1
Introduction to Weather; OHLearning StandardsKindergartenK.ESS.1.bAir is a nonliving substance that surrounds Earth and wind is air that is moving.1

Pushes and Pulls; OHLearning StandardsGrade 11.PS.2.bThe motion of an object can be affected by pushing or pulling. A push or pull is a force that can make an object move faster, slower or go in a different direction. Changes in motion are a result of changes in energy.1
Pushes and Pulls; OHLearning StandardsGrade 22.PS.1.aMotion can increase, change direction or stop depending on the force applied.1
Pushes and Pulls; OHLearning StandardsGrade 22.PS.1.bThe change in motion of an object is related to the size of the force.1

Balanced & Unbalanced Forces; OHLearning StandardsGrade 55.PS.1.bAny change in speed or direction of an object requires a force and is affected by the mass of the object and the amount of force applied.2
Conservation of Matter;OHLearning StandardsGrade 44.PS.1.aWhen an object is broken into smaller pieces, when a solid is dissolved in a liquid or when matter changes state (solid, liquid, gas), the total amount of matter remains constant.2
Earth’s Orbit and Rotation;OHLearning StandardsGrade 55.ESS.3.aEarth’s revolution around the sun takes approximately 365 days. Earth completes one rotation on its axis in a 24-hour period, producing day and night. This rotation makes the sun, stars and moon appear to change position in the sky.2
Ecosystems; OHLearning StandardsGrade 44.LS.1.bEcosystems are based on interrelationships among and between biotic and abiotic factors. These include the diversity of other organisms present, the availability of food and other resources, and the physical attributes of the environment.2
Ecosystems; Adaptations and the Environment; OHLearning StandardsGrade 44.LS.1.aEcosystems can change gradually or dramatically. When the environment changes, some plants and animals survive and reproduce and others die or move to new locations.2
Energy Transfer;OHLearning StandardsGrade 44.PS.2.aEnergy transfers from hot objects to cold objects as heat, resulting in a temperature change.2

How Do We Use Food; Food Webs; OHLearning StandardsGrade 55.LS.2.aFor ecosystems, the major source of energy is sunlight. Energy entering ecosystems as sunlight is transferred and transformed by producers into energy that organisms use through the process of photosynthesis. That energy is used or stored by the producer and can be passed from organism to organism as illustrated in food webs.2
Light Reflection & Vision; OHLearning StandardsGrade 55.PS.2.aLight travels and maintains its direction until it interacts with an object or moves from one medium to another and then it can be reflected, refracted or absorbed.2
Natural Disasters;OHLearning StandardsGrade 44.ESS.1.cCatastrophic events such as flooding, volcanoes and earthquakes can create landforms.2
Plant Growth (K-2 Series)OHLearning StandardsGrade 33.ESS.1.aSoil is composed of pieces of rock, organic material, water and air and has characteristics that can be measured and observed. Use the term “soil”, not “dirt”. Dirt and soil are not synonymous.2
