1 North Carolina Extended Essential Standards Science K-2 The Alternate Achievement Standards for Students With the Most Significant Cognitive Disabilities Non-Regulatory Guidance states, Materials should show a clear link to the content standards for the grade in which the student is enrolled, although the gradelevel content may be reduced in complexity or modified to reflect pre-requisite skills. Throughout the Standards descriptors such as, describe, classify, identify, compare, etc, should be interpreted to mean that the students will be taught and tested according to their mode of communication. Kindergarten Physical Science Forces and Motion K.P.1 Understand the positions and motions of objects and organisms observed in the environment. K.P.1.1 Compare the relative position of various objects observed in the classroom and outside using position words such as: in front of, behind, between, on top of, under, above, below, beside. K.P.1.2 Give examples of different ways objects and organisms move (to include falling to the ground when dropped): Straight Zigzag Round and round Back and forth Fast and slow Position and motion of objects EX.K.P.1 Identify positions and motions of familiar objects in the environment. EX.K.P.1.1 Locate familiar objects in the environment. EX.K.P.1.2 Indicate the movement of objects in the environment to demonstrate motion (to include falling to the ground when dropped).
