Standards

 

 

 

Kindergarten

  • K-LS1-1 – Use observations to describe patterns of what plants and animals (including human) need to survive.
  • K-ESS2-2 – Construct argument supported by evidence for how plants and animals (including humans) can change the environment to meet their needs.
  • 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-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.

 

First Grade

  • 1-PS4-1 – Plan and conduct investigations to provide evidence that vibrating materials can make sound and that sound can make materials vibrate.
  • 1-LS1-1 – Use materials to design a solution to a human problem by mimicking how plants and/or animals use their external parts to help them survive, grow, and meet their needs.
  • 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.

 

Second Grade

  • 2-PS1-1 – Plan and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties.
  • 2-PSI-2 – Analyze data obtained from testing different materials to determine which materials have the properties that are best suited for an intended purpose.
  • 2-LS2-2 – Develop a simple model that mimics the function of an animal in dispersing seeds or pollinating plants.
  • 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.

 

Third Grade

  • 3-PS2-2 – Make observations and/or measurements of an object’s motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.
  • 3-LS1-1 – Develop models to describe that organisms have unique and diverse life cycles but all have in common birth, growth, reproduction, and death.
  • 3-LS2-1 – Construct an argument that some animals form groups that help members survive.
  • 3-LS4-2 – Use evidence to construct an explanation for how the variations in characteristics among individuals of the same species may provide advantages in surviving, finding mates, and reproducing.
  • 3-LS4-3 – Construct an argument with evidence that in a particular habitat some organisms can survive well, some survive less well, and some cannot survive at all.
