ESS Earth & Space Science

  • K.ESS2 Earth's Systems

    • K.ESS2.1 Use and share observations of local weather conditions to describe patterns over time.

    • K.ESS2.2 Construct an argument supported by evidence for how plants and animals (including humans) can change the environment to meet their needs.

  • K.ESS3 Earth and Human Activity

    • K.ESS3.1 Use a model to represent the relationship between the needs of different plants or animals (including humans) and the places they live.

    • K.ESS3.2 Ask questions to obtain information about the purpose of weather forecasting to prepare for, and respond to, severe weather.

    • K.ESS3.3 Communicate solutions that will reduce the impact of humans on the land, water, air, and/or other living things in the local environment.

ETS Engineering, Technology, and the Application of Science

  • K.ETS1 Engineering Design

    • K.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.

    • K.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.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

PS Physical Science

  • K.PS2 Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions

    • K.PS2.1 Plan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object.

    • K.PS2.2 Analyze data to determine if a design solution works as intended to change the speed or direction of an object with a push or a pull.

  • K.PS3 Energy

    • K.PS3.1 Make observations to determine the effect of sunlight on Earth's surface.

    • K.PS3.2 Use tools and materials to design and build a structure that will reduce the warming effect of sunlight on an area.
