Welcome to the Sample Unit Progression and corresponding resources for Grade 1. These optional resources were developed and identified by Oklahoma educators to support instruction aligned to the Oklahoma Academic Standards for Science (OAS-S) and are connected to the Grade 1 Bundled Standards Analyses. Recommendations are not intended to be an exhaustive listing of instructional possibilities

 

Click on the unit name to access the instructional resources for that unit.

 

Unit 1 Information

Driving Question 

Essential Questions 

Standards 

Unit 1: Light

(instructional resources)


Suggested Timeline: 6-8 weeks

 


Light Bundle Analysis

 

Why can't we see in the dark?

How does light affect what we see?

 

What happens when there is no light?

 

How do different materials interact with light? 

1.PS4.2 Make observations to construct an evidence-based account that objects can be seen only when illuminated.

 

1.PS4.3 Plan and conduct an investigation to determine the effect of placing objects made with different materials in the path of a beam of light.

 

Unit 2 Information

Driving Question 

Essential Questions 

Standards 

Unit 2: Waves

(instructional resources)


Suggested Timeline: 4-6 weeks

 


Waves Bundle Analysis

 

How do light and sound interact with materials? 

How can we use evidence to describe the relationship between sound and vibrating materials?

 

How can light or sound be used to communicate over a distance?

 

How can we evaluate whether or not a design solution used to communicate over a distance using light and/or sound is successful? 

1.PS4.1 Plan and conduct investigations to provide evidence that vibrating materials can make sound and that sound can make materials vibrate. 

 

1.PS4.4 Use tools and materials to design and build a device that uses light or sound to solve the problem of communicating over a distance.*

 

Unit 3 Information

Driving Question 

Essential Questions 

Standards 

Unit 3: Earth and the Solar System

(instructional resources)


Suggested Timeline: 4-6 weeks

(Observations can be made throughout the year.)


Earth and the Solar System Bundle Analysis 

Can patterns be used to predict temperatures or when objects will appear in the sky? 

What objects are found in the sky and how do they seem to move?

 

How can you describe the length of day and night in the summer compared to other seasons? 

1.ESS1.1 Use observations of the sun, moon, and stars to describe patterns that can be predicted. 

 

1.ESS1.2 Make observations at different times of the year to relate the amount of daylight and relative temperature to the time of year.

 

Unit 4 Information

Driving Question 

Essential Questions 

Standards 

Unit 4: Heredity

(instructional resources)


Suggested Timeline: 4-6 weeks

 


Heredity Bundle Analysis

  

How can individuals be similar or different from others of the same kind? 

How are parents and their children similar and different?

 

How do inherited behaviors help offspring survive? 

1.LS1.2 Obtain information from media/or text to determine patterns in the behavior of parents and offspring that help offspring survive. 

 

1.LS3.1 Make observations to construct an evidence-based account that young plants and animals are like, but not exactly like, their parents.

 

Unit 5 Information

Driving Question 

Essential Questions 

Standards 

Unit 5: Structure and Function

(instructional resources)


Suggested Timeline: 3-5 weeks

 


Structure and Function Bundle Analysis 

How can people solve a problem or make life better by mimicking plants and/or animals?

What are some ways plants and animals meet their needs so they can survive and grow?

 

How can the external parts of plants and animals be used to solve a human problem?

1.LS1.1 Use materials to design a solution to a human problem by mimicking how plants and/or animals use their external parts to help them survive, grow, and meet their needs.* 

 

Unit 6 Information

Driving Question 

Essential Questions 

Standards 

Unit 6: Human Impact on the Environment

(instructional resources)


Suggested Timeline: 3-5 weeks

 


Human Impact on the Environment Bundle Analysis 

How do people's choices impact the local environment?

How can people reduce the impact on the environment?

 

How can people protect the Earth?

In what ways can people reduce, reuse, and recycle materials? 

1.ESS3.1 Communicate solutions that will reduce the impact of humans on the land, water, air, and/or other living things in the local environment.*
