1 Science Curriculum Unit Planner Grade: K Strand: Matter SOL: K.4 The student will investigate and understand that the position, motion, and physical properties of an object can be described. Key concepts include a) colors of objects; b) shapes and forms of objects; c) textures and feel of objects; d) relative sizes and weights of objects; and e) relative positions and speed of objects. Time: 2-3 weeks and integrated with Mathematics curriculum 1. Desired Results Enduring Understandings (BIG Ideas) Matter takes up space and has physical properties which include color, shape or form, texture, and size. What is matter? How can we observe matter? How can we measure matter? What are physical properties of matter? How can we describe matter? How can we compare and contrast objects? Understanding the Standard An object may have many properties that can be observed and described. An object can be described readily in terms of color. Visible light waves are the only electromagnetic waves that we can see with the naked eye. We see these waves as the colors of the rainbow. Each color has a different wavelength. Red has the longest wavelength and violet has the shortest wavelength. When all the waves are seen together, they make white light. When white light shines through a prism, the white light is broken apart into colors. Water vapor in the atmosphere can act as a prism and break apart the white light, creating a rainbow. The order of the colors in the visible spectrum is red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet. Most scientists no longer include the color indigo, which used to be included between blue and violet. At the kindergarten level, violet is referred to as purple. It is not required at the kindergarten level that students Essential Questions Essential Knowledge, Skills and Processes Students will: Identify and name six basic colors, including red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple; and identify and name black and white. Identify and name a circle, triangle, square, and rectangle. Compare and contrast objects that are flexible, stiff, straight, and/or curved. Compare and contrast objects that are rough, smooth, hard, and/or soft. Compare objects using the concepts of heavy/light, long/short, wide/thin, big/little, and large/small. Measure objects, using nonstandard units, and direct comparisons. Identify the position of an object, using position words over/under, in/out, above/below, and left/right. Group objects according to their speed fast or slow.

2 know the term violet. Black and white are not spectral colors, but students should recognize them by name. Black is the total absence of light and is when a material absorbs all the light. White is a reflection of all visible light together. An object can be described in terms of shape, size, and texture. An object can be described according to its position relative to another object and according to its motion. Two different objects can have some of the same physical properties and some different physical properties. Prior Knowledge Pass around objects and have the students describe them. Create a word list to describe objects. KWL Science Vocabulary matter, properties, color words (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple), white, black, shapes (circle, triangle, rectangle, square), texture (rough, smooth, hard, soft), stiff, flexible, straight, curved, position (over, under, in, out, above, below, left, right), measurement (heavy, light, long, short, wide, thin, big, little, large, small), speed (slow, fast) 2. Assessment Evidence Throughout the Unit Formative Assessment: Teacher observation /anecdotal records of students engaged in cooperative learning investigations. KWL Science notebook (questions, predictions, observations, summaries, charts, drawings) Conduct simple experiments using appropriate tools Record data on scientific investigations performed Students sort, sequence, classify and group objects based on 1 similar attribute. Summative Assessment: Test/assessment Performance based tasks: Draw shapes or pick correct shape from a mixture of shapes. Groups of students can form various shapes. Measure objects using nonstandard units. Use words to describe physical properties of objects. Sort objects into two groups based on one common attribute. 3.

3 FOSS Fabric (Kinder) Students become familiar with fabric s properties, discover what happens when they are tested, and discover how they interact with other materials, including water. Investigation 1: Fabric All Around Investigation 2: Fabric Interactions (link with K.5) AIMS It Must be a Bird AIMS Fall into Math and Science (K-1) You Drive Me Crackers, p Shape Up! p AIMS Glide into Winter with Math and Science AIMS Under Construction (K-2) Sizing up Bears, p Mitts for Kits, p Fit for a Bear, p Design on the Mind (Poem), p. 118 Suggested Activities: Provide students with a variety of objects such as pattern blocks, colored macaroni, buttons, colored tiles, plastic insects, etc. Have them sort and classify the objects according to color, size, shape, and width and according to whether they are straight or curved. Collect objects such as balls, blocks, marbles, rocks that look the same but are different sizes and weight. Have children hold two objects that look alike and predict what object will be heavy or light. Check with a scale to validate. Discuss reasons why with terms including big/little, large/small and wide/thin. Measure children and sequence from short to tall. Measure arms, legs and compare longer/shorter. Measure other objects in the room. Teacher sorts students into 2 or more groups based on an attribute and students have to guess what each group has in common. Students sort themselves into groups based on the color shirt or shoes they are wearing or based on their hair color or any other common attribute. Each student receives one button. Call on one student to describe their button (color, number of holes, shape, size). Students who have a button with the same description raise their hand. Their partner checks it. Students try to find another student in the class who has a button that is similar to their own. Students orally share how their two buttons are the same and different. Teacher models and then students work with a partner to sort animals based on a single attribute has wings, does not have wings; has fur, has no fur; has 4 legs, does not have 4 legs; etc. After, students use clay to make a model of their favorite animal and then works with the members of their table to classify all the animals into two or more different groups. Students may also use pencils or yarn to measure and compare the length of their animal models and to sequence them from largest to smallest. Integrate positional words into daily language arts and mathematics activities.
