Measurement Topic: Atoms bond in different ways to form molecules and compounds that have definite properties

SC.HSE.H14.E1.03 Demonstrate how two or more objects can be connected together to create a different product or outcome

Measurement Topic: Cells use passive and active transport of substances across membranes to maintain relatively stable intracellular environments

SC.HSE.H25.E1.03 Identify common symptoms that show when a body system is not functioning properly

Measurement Topic: Cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems maintain relatively stable internal environments, even in the face of changing external environments

SC.HSE.H26.E2.03 Identify two or more health decisions influencing organ health

Measurement Topic: Cellular metabolic activities are carried out by biomolecules produced by organisms

SC.HSE.H23.E2.03 Identify common food sources of fats, carbohydrates and proteins

SC.HSE.H23.E3.03 Explain how lifestyle choices impact the body

Measurement Topic: Climate is the result of energy transfer among interactions of the atmosphere, hydrosphere, geosphere, and biosphere

SC.HSE.H34.E4.03 Use tools to measure temperature, wind, precipitation and then analyze information from the sources about climate change

Measurement Topic: Energy exists in many forms such as mechanical, chemical, electrical, radiant, thermal, and nuclear, that can be quantified and experimentally determined

SC.HSE.H15.E3.03 Predicts types of energy associated with objects (heat, sound, light, mechanical, electrical)

Measurement Topic: Matter can change form through chemical or nuclear reactions abiding by the laws of conservation of mass and energy

SC.HSE.H13.E1.03 Identify common household products or processes that use chemical reactions

Measurement Topic: Matter has definite structure that determines characteristic physical and chemical properties

SC.HSE.H12.E1.03 Gather data and justify grouping of objects or materials based on chemical and physical properties (e.g., melting point, boiling, conductivity)

SC.HSE.H12.E2.03 Demonstrate that different ratios of substances can be combined to create unique mixtures

Measurement Topic: Matter tends to be cycled within an ecosystem, while energy is transformed and eventually exits an ecosystem

SC.HSE.H21.E1.03 Compare and contrast carnivores, herbivores and omnivores

Measurement Topic: Multicellularity makes possible a division of labor at the cellular level through the expression of select genes, but not the entire genome

SC.HSE.H28.E1.03 Identify environmental toxins that are harmful to humans

Measurement Topic: Natural hazards have local, national and global impacts such as volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, and thunderstorms

SC.HSE.H37.E1.03 Identify impacts of natural hazards (blizzard, tornado, flood, volcanoes, fire and earthquakes)

Measurement Topic: Newton's laws of motion and gravitation describe the relationships among forces acting on and between objects, their masses, and changes in their motion - but have limitations

SC.HSE.H11.E1.03 Gather, record and interpret data about speed and direction of moving objects

Measurement Topic: The energy for life primarily derives from the interrelated processes of photosynthesis and cellular respiration. Photosynthesis transforms the sun's light energy into the chemical energy of molecular bonds. Cellular respiration allows cells to utilize chemical energy when these bonds are broken

SC.HSE.H24.E2.03 Describe three components in the environment that are necessary for photosynthesis (sunlight, water, nutrients) and what occurs when one component is lacking.

Measurement Topic: The history of the universe, solar system and Earth can be inferred from evidence left from past events

SC.HSE.H31.E2.03 Identify the Solar System as having formed around the sun

Measurement Topic: The size and persistence of populations depend on their interactions with each other and on the abiotic factors in an ecosystem

SC.HSE.H22.E1.03 Compare and contrast positive and /or negative impacts humans have on our ecosystems.
