Elementary Cycle 1 Science and Technology

 Science and Technology - Elementary Cycle 1


To explore the world of science and technology  

Progressions - See the Progressions Lists for Science & technology HERE

Science Journals

I have made these simple and easy-to-use science journals that help cover the progressions for cycle 1. Each journal includes a concept poster that you can use to teach your child the concept and one or two worksheets or activities that you can use to show your child's learning. If your kiddo seems really into a concept you can further the learning with books, videos, and supplies. But this journal will help show proof of their learning and having followed the progressions.

Science Journal 1 - Matter Investigations 1

Covers the following progressions:

  • Classifies objects according to their properties
  • Classifies materials according to their degree of absorption
  • Distinguishes between materials that are permeable to water and those that are not
  • Distinguishes between translucent (transparent or coloured) and opaque substances

Science Journal 2 - Mixtures

Covers the following progressions:

  • Recognizes mixtures in their environment 
  • Distinguishes between mixtures of miscible and immiscible liquids
  • Distinguishes between substances that are soluble in water

Covers the following progressions:
  • Distinguishes among the 3 states of matter
  • Recognizes water in its solid, liquid, and gaseous state
  • Describes the operation involved in changing water from one state to another (heating, cooling)
  • Determines the state of various objects and substances in their environment
  • Conservation of matter - recognizes that the quantity of matter remains the same once a change has occured

Covers the following progressions:
  • Effects of a force on the direction of an object
  • Identifies situations involving the force of friction (pushing on an object, sliding an object, rolling an object)

Science Journal 5 - Magnets
Covers the following progressions:
  • Recognizes the effects of magnetism on magnets (attraction and repulsion)
  • Identifies situations in which magnets are used

Covers the following progression(s):
  • Describes the parts and mechanisms that make up an object
  • Identifies the needs that an object was originally designed to meet
Covers the following progression(s):
  • Identifies natural sources of fresh water (brooks, lakes, rivers) and natural sources of salt water (oceans, seas)

Covers the following progression(s):
  • Describes different types of precipitation

Covers the following progressions:
  • Describes the influence of the apparent position of the sun on the length of shadows

Covers the following progressions
  • Associates the sun with the idea of a star, the Earth with the idea of a planet, and the moon with the idea of a natural satellite
