Performance Expectations

The performance expectations in first grade help students formulate answers to questions such as:

  • What happens when materials vibrate?
  • What happens when there is no light?
  • What are some ways plants and animals meet their needs so that they can survive and grow?
  • How are parents and their children similar and different?
  • What objects are in the sky and how do they seem to move?”

Students are expected to develop understanding of the relationship between sound and vibrating materials as well as between the availability of light and ability to see objects. The idea that light travels from place to place can be understood by students at this level through determining the effect of placing objects made with different materials in the path of a beam of light.
Students are also expected to develop understanding of how plants and animals use their external parts to help them survive, grow, and meet their needs as well as how behaviors of parents and offspring help the offspring survive. The understanding is developed that young plants and animals are like, but not exactly the same as, their parents. Students are able to observe, describe, and predict some patterns of the movement of objects in the sky.

Calculation Method for DCI

Disciplinary Core Ideas are larger groups of related Performance Expectations. So the Disciplinary Core Idea Grade is a calculation of all the related Performance Expectations. So click on the Performance Expectation name below each Disciplinary Core Idea to access the learning targets and proficiency scales for each Disciplinary Core Idea's related Performance Expectations.

SCI-01.ESS1.01

Earth Space Science Logo1st Grade (SCI) Science Standards
[ESS1] Earth's Place in the Universe

SCI-01.ESS1.01 Describe patterns that can be predicted through observations of the sun, moon, and stars.

Clarification Statement: Examples of patterns could include that the sun and moon appear to rise in one part of the sky, move across the sky, and set; and stars other than our sun are visible at night but not during the day.
Disciplinary Core Ideas
ESS1.A: The Universe and its Stars -Patterns of the motion of the sun, moon, and stars in the sky can be observed, described, and predicted.
