Engineering Designs (K-2)
- K-2-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-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.
- K-2-ETS1-3 Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same
problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how
- 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.
Interpendent Relationships in Ecosystems
- K-LS1-1 Use observations to
describe patterns of what plants and animals (including humans) need to
- 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-ESS3-1 Use a model to represent
the relationship between the needs of different plants or animals (including humans) and the
places they live.
- K-ESS3-3 Communicate solutions that
will reduce the impact of humans on the land, water, air, and/or other living things in the
- Interpendent Relationships in Ecosystems
Weather and Climate
- 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.
- K-ESS2-1 Use and share observations
of local weather conditions to describe patterns over time.
- K-ESS3-2 Ask
questions to obtain information about the purpose of weather forecasting to
prepare for, and respond to severe weather.
