Earth’s Systems: Processes that Shape the Earth
- 2-ESS1-1 Use information from
several sources to provide evidence that Earth events can occur quickly or
- 2-ESS2-1 Compare multiple solutions
designed to slow or prevent wind or water from changing the shape of the land.
- 2-ESS2-2 Develop a model to represent the shapes and
kinds of land and bodies of water in an area.
- 2-ESS2-3 Obtain
information to identify where water is found on Earth and that it can be solid
Engineering Design (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
Interdependent Relationships in Ecosystems
- 2-LS2-1 Plan and conduct an
investigation to determine if plants need sunlight and water to grow.
- 2-LS2-2 Develop a simple model
that mimics the function of an animal in dispersing seeds or pollinating
- 2-LS4-1 Make observations of plants and animals to
compare the diversity of life in different habitats.
Structure and Properties of Matter
- 2-PS1-1 Plan and conduct an investigation
to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties.
- 2-PS1-2 Analyze
data obtained from testing different materials to determine which materials
have the properties that are best suited for an intended purpose.
- 2-PS1-3 Make observations to construct an
evidence-based account of how an object made of a small set of pieces can be disassembled and made into a
- 2-PS1-4 Construct an argument with evidence that some
changes caused by heating or cooling can be reversed and some cannot.
