K-2-ETS Engineering, Technology, and the Application of Science

  • K-2-ETS1 Engineering Design

    • K-2-ETS1-1 Ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change (e.g.,climate change) to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.

    • K-2-ETS1-2 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.

    • K-2-ETS1-3 Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how each performs.
