Science Big Ideas​​​​​

​​​​Biology​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Chemistry​​Physics​Earth and Space​​
​Kindergarten​Plants and animals have observable features​
Humans interact with matter every day through familiar materials.​
The motion of objects depends on their properties.​​​​
Daily and seasonal changes affect all living things.​​
​Grade 1​​​Living things have features and behaviours that help them survive in their environment.
Matter is useful because of its properties.​
Light and sound can be produced and their properties can be changed.​
Observable patterns and cycles occur in the local sky and landscape​
​Grade 2​All living things have a life cycle.
Materials can be changed through physical and chemical processes.Forces influence the motion of an object.​​
Water is essential to all living things, and it cycles through the environment.​​
​Grade 3​Living things are diverse, can be grouped, and interact in their ecosystems.​
All matter is made of particles.​
Thermal energy can be produced and transferred.​Wind, water, and ice change the shape of the land.
​Grade 4All living things and their environment are interdependent.Matter has mass, takes up space, and can change phase.
​Energy can be transformed.​
The motion of Earth and the moon cause observable patterns that affect living and non-living systems.​
​Grade 5

Multicellular organisms have organ systems that enable them to survive and interact within their environment​.

Solutions are homogeneous.
Machines are devices that transfer force and energy.​​Earth materials change as they move through the rock cycle and can be used ​as natural resources.​
​Grade 6Multicellular organisms rely on internal systems to survive, reproduce, and interact with their environment.​
Everyday materials are often homogeneous solutions and heterogeneous mixtures.​
Newton’s three laws of motion describe the relationship between force and motion.​The solar system is part of the Milky Way, which is one of billions of galaxies.​​​
​Grade 7The theory of evolution by natural selection provides an explanation for the diversity and survival of living things.​
Elements consist of one type of atom, and compounds consist of atoms of different elements chemically combined.​
The electromagnetic force produces both electricity and magnetism.​
​Earth and its climate have changed over geological time.​​​
