1st Grade Science Curriculum

TCI introduces 1st grade science curriculum to classrooms across the nation. Our 1st grade science curriculum and science textbook emphasize the relationship between plants and animals and their functions. Our 1st grade science curriculum will get students thinking about how light and sound travel, how to make predictions based on patterns in the movement of the sun, moon, and stars, and more.


1st Grade Science Curriculum

The 1st grade science curriculum is broken down into 3 units to emphasize these main sections:


  • Unit 1 – Plant and Animal Parts Students will learn about the similarities and differences of plants and animals, the types of parts plants and animals have, how plants and animals ‘sense’ things, how they take in nature’s resources, and more.
  • Unit 2 – Light and Sound Guide your students through the fundamentals of how light and sound works in the world. How does light help you see? How does light travel? How is sound made? How do we use light and sound to send messages to people? Help your students answer all of these questions and more.
  • Unit 3 – Sky Patterns During this unit, students will continue developing their pattern recognition skills by observing the occurrences in the sky, both during the day and at night. Students will analyze and interpret the data that they gather by observing the sun, moon, and stars.
