Kindergarten Science Curriculum Content Timeline

School Year 2018-2019

Teachers Access Resources via learning Maps

Some weeks will include two different topics depending on number of days assigned. This template is to be used as a rough gauge for pacing. 

The intention of the Learning Map is to provide a consistent scope and sequence for the course across the district.  While the instruction and resources will be based on the needs of the students, the expectation is that every student enrolled in the course will learn the benchmarks in each unit.  While benchmarks are discretely displayed, it is expected that overlap will occur.

Review

 

Revised June 5, 2018

Interdisciplinary Connections

In addition to the science content benchmarks listed, English Language Development, Literacy, and Mathematics standards are to be purposefully integrated and assessed continually throughout the progression of the course.  These standards reinforce the skills that our students require for the constructive acquisition of science content in the classroom as well as the successful navigation of science issues in society. Collaborative discussion, integration of multiple sources of media, and support of claims with evidence are but a few skills emphasized by the standards.

 

English Language Development Standards: Please see the Florida ELD Performance Definitions and Descriptors for Science for remarks and clarifications (http://www.cpalms.org/uploads/docs/standards/eld/SC.pdf).

ELD.K12.ELL.SC.1:

English language learners communicate information, ideas and concepts necessary for academic success in the content area of Science.

ELD.K12.ELL.SI.1:

English language learners communicate for social and instructional purposes within the school setting.

 

Literacy Standards

LAFS.K.RI.1.1:

With prompting and support, ask and answer questions about key details in a text.

LAFS.K.RI.2.4:

With prompting and support, ask and answer questions about unknown words in a text.

LAFS.K.RI.4.10:

Actively engage in group reading activities with purpose and understanding.

LAFS.K.SL.1.1:

Participate in collaborative conversations with diverse partners about kindergarten topics and texts with peers and adults in small and larger groups.

  1. Follow agreed-upon rules for discussions (e.g., listening to others and taking turns speaking about the topics and texts under discussion).
  2. Continue a conversation through multiple exchanges.

LAFS.K.W.3.8:

With guidance and support from adults, recall information from experiences or gather information from provided sources to answer a question.

 

Math Standards

MAFS.K.MD.1.2:

Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, to see which object has “more of”/“less of” the attribute, and describe the difference. For example, directly compare the heights of two children and describe one child as taller/shorter.

MAFS.K.MD.2.3:

Classify objects into given categories; count the numbers of objects in each category and sort the categories by count.
