to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Make observations at different times of year to relate the amount of daylight to the time of year. Emphasis is on relative comparisons of the amount of daylight in the winter to the amount in the spring or fall. Assessment is limited to relative amounts of daylight, not quantifying the hours or time of daylight.
Use observations of the sun, moon, and stars to describe patterns that can be predicted. Examples of patterns could include that the sun and moon appear to rise in one part of the sky, move across the sky, and set; and stars other than our sun are visible at night but not during the day. Assessment of star patterns is limited to stars being seen at night and not during the day.
Develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem.
