Analysis Of The Indiana State K-6 Physical Science Standards

718 Words 3 Pages
I organized all of the Indiana State K-6 Physical Science Standards to where I believed they belonged within the five units we go over in P199. For the Forces and Motion; Measurement unit I placed standards 2.1.4, 2.1.5, 2.1.6, 2.1.7, 5.1.1, 5.1.2, 5.1.3, 6.1.4, 6.1.5, and 6.1.6. For Physical Properties I placed K.1.1, K.1.2, 1.1.1, 1.1.2, 1.1.3, 2.1.3, 6.1.1, and 6.1.2. Within the Physical Changes; Electricity and Magnetism unit I organized standards 2.1.1, 4.1.3, 4.1.4, 4.1.5, 5.1.4, and 6.1.3. The Sound and Light unit contains standards 3.1.1, 3.1.2, 3.1.3, 3.1.4, 3.1.5, and 3.1.6. Lastly, the Chemistry and Chemical Changes unit has standards 2.1.2, 4.1.1, 4.1.2, and 6.1.7. While I was organizing all of the standards into the five units I did find that it was difficult to place some units because I thought that they could maybe fit into more than one unit. For example, standard 6.1.3 is over how mass is conserved when substances undergo a change in state. I placed this standard in the Physical Changes; Electricity and Magnetism unit because it has to do with substances undergoing a change in state. However, I also think that this standard could have been placed in the Forces and Motion; Measurement unit because it also covers how mass is …show more content…
I would be the least comfortable in teaching sixth grade with respect to the physical science standards because of how much more involved the concepts are. To feel comfortable teaching all grade levels I need to concentrate on topics in P199 such as magnetism, electricity, chemistry, and chemical changes. I can accomplish this by fully participating in lecture and lab and paying extra attention to these concepts so that I can feel fully confident in my ability to teach these subject matters to young
