NGSS2-LS2-2
Develop a simple model that mimics the function of an animal in dispersing seeds or pollinating plants.
NGSS2-LS2-1
Plan and conduct an investigation to determine if plants need sunlight and water to grow. Assessment is limited to testing one variable at a time.
NGSS2-LS4-1
Make observations of plants and animals to compare the diversity of life in different habitats. Emphasis is on the diversity of living things in each of a variety of different habitats. Assessment does not include specific animal and plant names in specific habitats.
Participate in shared research and writing projects (e.g., read a number of books on a single topic to produce a report; record science observations).
With guidance and support from adults, use a variety of digital tools to produce and publish writing, including in collaboration with peers.
