Sunlight warms Earths land, air and water. The amount of exposure to sunlight affects the amount of warming or cooling of air, water and land.


These changes occur due to changing energy. Water can change from a liquid to a solid and from a solid to a liquid. Weather observations can be used to examine the property changes of water.


Living things require energy, water and a particular range of temperatures in their environments.


Plants get energy from sunlight. Animals get energy from plants and other animals.


Living things acquire resources from the living and nonliving components of the environment.


Resources are necessary to meet the needs of an individual and populations of individuals. Living things interact with their physical environments as they meet those needs.


Effects of seasonal changes within the local environment directly impact the availability of resources.


Objects and materials change when exposed to various conditions, such as heating or freezing. Not all materials change in the same way.


The position of an object can be described by locating it relative to another object or to the objects surroundings.


An object is in motion when its position is changing.


The motion of an object can be affected by pushing or pulling. A push or pull is a force that can make an object move faster, slower or go in a different direction.
