ESS Earth & Space Science

  • 1.ESS1 Earth's Place in the Universe

    • 1.ESS1.1 Use observations of the sun, moon, and stars to describe patterns that can be predicted.

    • 1.ESS1.2 Make observations at different times of year to relate the amount of daylight to the time of year.

ETS Engineering, Technology, and the Application of Science

  • 1.ETS1 Engineering Design

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

    • 1.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.

    • 1.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.

LS Life Science

  • 1.LS1 From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes
