### Thermometer

- Activity -

The students learn how to read the temperature on different kinds of thermometers.

### Floating and Sinking

- Activity -

Through play students will learn which objects float or sink.

### Food Groups

- Activity -

Students learn about which foods belong to each food group.

### Push or Pull

- Activity -

Find out the difference between pulling and pushing.

### Fruit or Vegetable

- Activity -

Identify and categorize fruits and vegetables.

### Sounds

- Lesson plan -

Students will: explore sounds, understand what causes sounds.

### Forces

- Lesson plan -

Learn the different ways that objects can move. Understand that motion is the result of a force, understand that a force is a push or a pull, examine how the size of a force and the mass of an object effects motion.

### Changes of Matter

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand that some changes of matter are reversible while others are not, understand how water can change from a solid to a liquid to a gas and back, understand some common chemical reactions.

### Changing Motion

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand that motion is the change in the position of an object which is caused by a force (a push or a pull), recognize speed as a measure of motion and be introduced to friction as a force which causes an object to slow down and stop.

### Gravity

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand that all objects exert a gravitational pull on each other, understand that the mass of an object and its proximity to another object will increase the strength of gravitational pull, understand the role gravity plays on Earth.

### Characteristic Properties of Matter

- Lesson plan -

Students will: recognize that the characteristic properties of a substance are the same regardless of the sample size, examine several common characteristic properties of matter.

### Forces and Motion

- Lesson plan -

Students will: recognize that a change in speed and direction is caused by a force, understand that a force is a push or a pull, recognize that the greater the force, the greater the change.

### Properties of Gases and Liquids

- Lesson plan -

Students will: recognize and identify the properties of gases and liquids in terms of shape, volume and mass, understand why solids have a fixed shape while liquids and gases do not.

### Magnetism

- Activity -

Through play students will learn about which materials are magnetic.

### Measurement

- Lesson plan -

Students will: investigate units of measurement by measuring objects with shoes and arms, practice measuring length, mass and volume using a ruler, a balance scale, and a graduated cylinder.

### Sound Waves

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand that sound is a vibration that travels in waves, understand frequency and amplitude, and how they define the pitch and loudness or softness of a sound.
