Children are naturally curious and motivated to learn about things that interest them. By engaging Kindergarten students in science they will:

  • Develop an understanding of patterns and changes in local weather and the purpose of weather forecasting to prepare for, and respond to, severe weather.
  • Understand how different strengths or directions of pushes and pulls change the motion of an object.
  • Develop an understanding of what plants and animals (including humans) need to survive and the relationship between their needs and where they live. 


The order of the standards at any grade level is not meant to imply a sequence of topics and should be considered flexible for the organization of any course.



Vertical Learning Progressions


Descriptions of disciplinary core ideas, crosscutting concepts, and science and engineering practices students are learning throughout their K-12 education. 



Sample Unit Progression


This optional, year-long progression provides a sample vision for engaging students in meaningful, connected science learning. Unit samples offer examples of essential questions, phenomena, connections to prior learning, and a 3-dimensional narrative for what learning might look like in the classroom. Recommendations are not intended to be an exhaustive listing of instructional possibilities.


Bundled Standards Analysis 

Examples of how to group standards based on common science ideas. Analysis is provided for each grouping of standards and is provided in a manner to support deep understanding of goals and expectations for the teacher and student. Recommendations are not intended to be an exhaustive listing of instructional possibilities.


Engagement Strategies


Suggested instructional practices that engage students with figuring out science ideas.
