  • Analysis Of The Indiana State K-6 Physical Science Standards

    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.

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…
