Building upon science skills from Kindergarten, first-graders continue to expand their understanding of their world around them. By the end of Grade 1 Science, students will be able to:

  • Investigate the relationship between sound and vibration, and the connection between light and our ability to see objects.

  • Increase understanding of how plants and animals use the outermost part of their body to help them survive, grow, and meet their needs.

  • Examine the ways parents help their offspring survive and study how young plants and animals are similar to, but not exactly the same as, their parents.

  • Observe, describe, and predict patterns in the movement of objects in the sky (the moon, starts, sun, etc.). 


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.
