We are beginning our first unit in science! This unit will last 3 weeks and students will learn:
Georgia Standards of Excellence:
SKP1. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to describe objects in terms of the materials they are made of and their physical attributes.
a. Ask questions to compare and sort objects made of different materials. (Common materials include clay, cloth, plastic, wood, paper, and metal.)
b. Use senses and science tools to classify common objects, such as buttons or swatches of cloth, according to their physical attributes (color, size, shape, weight, and texture).
c. Plan and carry out an investigation to predict and observe whether objects, based on their physical attributes, will sink or float.
