Actions

SCI.LS Life Science

  • SCI.LS1 Students use science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and an understanding of structures and processes (on a scale from molecules to organisms) to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.

    • SCI.LS1.A Structure and Function

    • SCI.LS1.B Growth and Development of Organisms

    • SCI.LS1.C Organization for Matter and Energy Flow in Organisms

    • SCI.LS1.D Information Processing

  • SCI.LS2 Students use science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and an understanding of the interactions, energy, and dynamics within ecosystems to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.

  • SCI.LS3 Students use science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and an understanding of heredity to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.

    • SCI.LS3.A Inheritance of Traits

    • SCI.LS3.B Variation of Traits

  • SCI.LS4 Students use science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and an understanding of biological evolution to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.

    • SCI.LS4.A Evidence of Common Ancestry and Diversity

    • SCI.LS4.B Natural Selection

    • SCI.LS4.C Adaptation

    • SCI.LS4.D Biodiversity and Humans

SCI.PS Physical Science

  • SCI.PS1 Students use science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and an understanding of matter and its interactions to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.

    • SCI.PS1.A Structures and Properties of Matter

      • SCI.PS1.A.5 Matter exists as particles that are too small to see. Matter is always conserved even if it seems to disappear. Measurements of a variety of observable properties can be used to identify particular materials.

    • SCI.PS1.B Chemical Reactions

    • SCI.PS1.C Nuclear Processes

  • SCI.PS2 Students use science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and an understanding of forces, interactions, motion and stability to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.

    • SCI.PS2.A Forces and Motion

    • SCI.PS2.B Types of Interactions

      • SCI.PS2.B.5 The gravitational force of Earth acting on an object near Earth's surface pulls that object toward the planet's center.

  • SCI.PS3 Students use science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and an understanding of energy to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.

  • SCI.PS4 Students use science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and an understanding of waves and their applications in technologies for information transfer to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.

    • SCI.PS4.A Wave Properties

    • SCI.PS4.B Electromagnetic Radiation

    • SCI.PS4.C Information Technologies and Instrumentation

SCI.ESS Earth and Space Science

  • SCI.ESS1 Students use science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and an understanding of Earth's place in the universe to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.

    • SCI.ESS1.A The Universe and Its Stars

      • SCI.ESS1.A.5 Stars range greatly in size and distance from Earth, and this can explain their relative brightness.

    • SCI.ESS1.B Earth and the Solar System

    • SCI.ESS1.C The History of Planet Earth

  • SCI.ESS2 Students use science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and an understanding of Earth's systems to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.
