NCDPI Standard Course of Study

 

Strands: Nature of Science, Science as Inquiry, Science and Technology, Science in Personal and Social Perspectives

 

Competency Goal 1: The learner will conduct investigations and make observations to build an understanding of the needs of living organisms.

NCDPI Unit - Plants and Soil

Objectives

1.01 Investigate the needs of a variety of different plants:

  • Air.
  • Water.
  • Light.
  • Space.

1.02 Investigate the needs of a variety of different animals:

  • Air.
  • Water.
  • Food.
  • Shelter.
  • Space.

1.03 Observe the ways in which humans are similar to other organisms.

1.04 Identify local environments that support the needs of common North Carolina plants and animals.

1.05 Discuss the wide variety of living things on Earth.

Competency Goal 2: The learner will make observations and use student-made rules to build an understanding of solid earth materials.

NCDPI Unit Plan:  Rocks and Soil

Objectives

2.01 Describe and sort a variety of earth materials based on their properties:

  • Color.
  • Hardness.
  • Shape.
  • Size.

2.02 Describe rocks and other earth materials in more than one way, using student-made rules.

2.03 Observe the various components that combine to make soil.

2.04 Compare the components of soil samples from different places.

2.05 Explore where useful earth materials are found and how they are used.

Competency Goal 3: The learner will make observations and conduct investigations to build an understanding of the properties and relationship of objects.

NCDPI Unit Plan - What's the Matter?  A Study of Solids, Liquids, and Gases

Objectives

3.01 Describe the differences in the properties of solids and liquids.

3.02 Investigate several ways in which objects can be described, sorted or classified.

3.03 Classify solids according to their properties:

  • Color.
  • Texture.
  • Shape (ability to roll or stack).
  • Ability to float or sink in water.

3.04 Determine the properties of liquids:

  • Color.
  • Ability to float or sink in water.
  • Tendency to flow.

3.05 Observe mixtures including:

  • Solids with solids.
  • Liquids with liquids.
  • Solids with liquids.
Competency Goal 4: The learner will make observations and conduct investigations to build an understanding of balance, motion and weighing of objects.

NCDPI Unit Plan - Balance, Motion, and Weight

 

Objectives

4.01 Describe different ways in which objects can be moved.

4.02 Observe that movement of an object can be affected by pushing or pulling.

4.03 Investigate and observe that objects can move steadily or change direction.

4.04 Observe and describe balance as a function of position and weight.

4.05 Describe and observe systems that are unstable and modify them to reach equilibrium.
