Doc and Ali have created this "textbook" to align perfectly to Florida's NGSSS standards. Every section comes with reading comprehension questions.

Book is flexible enough to use as a projected Read Along or independent practice later on in the year.

112 pages divided into 13 discrete units.

Supports Standards:

SC.1.E.5.1: - Observe and discuss that there are more stars in the sky than anyone can easily count and that they are not scattered evenly in the sky.

SC.1.E.5.2: Explore the Law of Gravity by demonstrating that Earth's gravity pulls any object on or near Earth toward it even though nothing is touching the object.

SC.1.E.5.3: Investigate how magnifiers make things appear bigger and help people see things they could not see without them.

SC.1.E.5.4: Identify the beneficial and harmful properties of the Sun.

SC.1.E.6.1: Recognize that water, rocks, soil, and living organisms are found on Earth's surface.

SC.1.E.6.2: Describe the need for water and how to be safe around water.

SC.1.E.6.3: Recognize that some things in the world around us happen fast and some happen slowly.

SC.1.L.14.1: Make observations of living things and their environment using the five senses.

SC.1.L.14.2: Identify the major parts of plants, including stem, roots, leaves, and flowers.

SC.1.L.14.3: Differentiate between living and nonliving things.

SC.1.L.16.1: Make observations that plants and animals closely resemble their parents, but variations exist among individuals within a population.

SC.1.L.17.1: Through observation, recognize that all plants and animals, including humans, need the basic necessities of air, water, food, and space.

SC.1.N.1.1: Raise questions about the natural world, investigate them in teams through free exploration, and generate appropriate explanations based on those explorations.

SC.1.N.1.2: Using the five senses as tools, make careful observations, describe objects in terms of number, shape, texture, size, weight, color, and motion, and compare their observations with others.

SC.1.N.1.3: Keep records as appropriate - such as pictorial and written records - of investigations conducted.

SC.1.N.1.4: Ask "how do you know?" in appropriate situations.

SC.1.P.8.1: Sort objects by observable properties, such as size, shape, color, temperature (hot or cold), weight (heavy or light), texture, and whether objects sink or float.

SC.1.P.12.1: Demonstrate and describe the various ways that objects can move, such as in a straight line, zigzag, back-and-forth, round-and-round, fast, and slow.

SC.1.P.13.1: Demonstrate that the way to change the motion of an object is by applying a push or a pull.

About Us:

Candlelight Science is a group of educator/writers. All have been (most still are) traditional classroom teachers with an average of 20 years of experience. We started our work because of a local need, but quickly realized the need for high quality, inexpensive resources was great. In response, we continue to produce science readers with multiple reading levels (compatible with CCSS text-complexity requirements), lesson plans, and even assessments to make the lives of teachers easier and more productive.
