• Subscribed Digital Resources for use in classrooms including: World Book Online, National Geographic Kids & Learn360. World Book Science Power has interactive lesson plans including differentiated content.

• All STEM Kits at the DRC: Books, Media & Hands-On Materials

• The following links will highlight resources and connect you to our vast Alexandria database. From there you will need to log in and will then have the ability to reserve materials for classroom use.

Kindergarten

Plants and animals have observable features. Humans interact with matter every day through familiar materials. The motion of objects depends
on their properties.
Daily and seasonal changes
affect all living things.
Grade 1 Living things have features and behaviours that help them survive in their environment. Matter is useful because of its properties.

Light and sound can be
produced and their properties
can be changed.

Observable patterns and
cycles occur in the local sky
and landscape.
Grade 2 All living things have a life cycle. Materials can be changed through physical and chemical processes. Forces influence the motion of an object. Water is essential to all living things, and it cycles through the environment.
Grade 3 Living things are diverse, can be grouped and interact in their ecosystems. All matter is made of particles. Thermal energy can be produces and transferred. Wind, water and ice change the shape of the land.
Grade 4 All living things sense and respond to their environment. Matter has mass, takes up space, and can change phase. Energy can be transformed. The motions of Earth and the moon cause observable patterns that affect living and non-living systems.
Grade 5 Multicellular organisms have organ systems that enable them to survive and interact within their environment.

Solutions are homogeneous.

Machines are devices that
transfer force and energy.

Earth materials change as they move through the rock cycle and can be used as natural resources.
Grade 6 Multicellular organisms rely on internal systems to survive, reproduce, and interact with their environment.

Everyday materials
are often mixtures.

Newton’s three laws of motion describe the relationship
between force and motion.
The solar system is part
of the Milky Way, which is
one of billions of galaxies.
Grade 7 Evolution by natural selection provides an explanation for the diversity and survival of living things. Elements consist of one type of atom, and compounds consist of atoms of different elements chemically combined. The electromagnetic force produces both electricity
and magnetism.
Earth and its climate have changed over geological time.
