                                symbols, pictures, objects, and/or actions (e.g., to describe
                                the weather as sunny, cloudy, rainy, windy; to draw a
Lesson 8 Gr 3-5   3-5   SI5.1   landscape - mountain, river, trees, rocks, soil, water).

Lesson 8 Gr 3-5   3-5   SI5.2   separating a mixture).

                                Recognize that objects have specific properties (i.e., size,
Lesson 9 Gr 3-5   3-5   a       shape, color, weight, smell, texture, and/or temperature).
                                Using one or more of the five senses, explore properties of
                                different materials (e.g., color, texture, shiny/dull, smell,
Lesson 9 Gr 3-5   3-5   b       sound, taste, hard/soft, and/or temperature).

                                and/or combinations of both (e.g., cooking, making kool-aid,
Lesson 9 Gr 3-5   3-5   a       making soil, different colored liquids, sand/water).
                                Observe different states of matter (e.g., solids have definite
                                shape and volume; liquids have definite volume but shape
Lesson 9 Gr 3-5   3-5   PP3.3   changes to fit the container; balloon; soda).
