CSISD 2017 - 2018 Science Scope & Sequence - Grade 1

Grade 1 Overview and YAG 2017 - 2018

Course Name: Science Grade 1 State-required lab percentage: 80% (4 out of 5 opportunities)
TEKS Introduction Section MATTER
Students observe and describe the natural world using their five senses. Matter is described in terms of its physical properties, including relative size and mass,
Students do science as inquiry in order to develop and enrich their abilities to shape, color, and texture.

Students develop vocabulary through their experiences investigating properties of The location and motion of objects are explored.
common objects, earth materials, and organisms.
A central theme in first grade science is active engagement in asking questions, WEATHER
communicating ideas, and exploring with scientific tools in order to explain scientific Weather is recorded and discussed on a daily basis so students may begin to
concepts and processes. recognize patterns in the weather.
Patterns are observed in the appearance of objects in the sky.
Scientific investigation and reasoning involves practicing safe procedures, asking
questions about the natural world, and seeking answers to those questions through
simple observations and descriptive investigations.
Students recognize the interdependence of organisms in the natural world.
Students understand that all organisms have basic needs that can be satisfied
through interactions with living and nonliving things.
Students will investigate life cycles of animals and identify likenesses between parents
and offspring.
