Actions

SCI.CC1 Students use science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas, and patterns to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.

  • Patterns

    • SCI.CC1.3-5 Students identify similarities and differences in order to sort and classify natural objects and designed products. They identify patterns related to time, including simple rates of change and cycles, and use these patterns to make predictions.

SCI.CC2 Students use science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas, and cause and effect relationships to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.

  • Cause and Effect

    • SCI.CC2.3-5 Students routinely identify and test causal relationships and use these relationships to explain change. They understand events that occur together with regularity may or may not signify a cause and effect relationship.

SCI.CC3 Students use science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas, and an understanding of scale, proportion and quantity to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.

SCI.CC4 Students use science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas, and an understanding of systems and models to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.

SCI.CC5 Students use science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas, and an understanding of energy and matter to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.

SCI.CC6 Students use science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas, and an understanding of structure and function to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.

  • Structure and Function

    • SCI.CC6.3-5 Students understand different materials have different substructures, which can sometimes be observed; and substructures have shapes and parts that serve functions.

SCI.CC7 Students use science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas, and an understanding of stability and change to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.

  • Stability and Change

    • SCI.CC7.3-5 Students measure change in terms of differences over time, and observe that change may occur at different rates. They understand some systems appear stable, but over long periods of time they will eventually change.
