Next Generation Science Standards
Forces and Interactions: Pushes and Pulls:
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.
Interdependent Relationships in Ecosystems: Animals, Plants, and Their Environment:
K-LS1-1: Use observations to describe patterns of what plants and animals (including humans) need to survive.
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 and 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 local environment.
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.
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 each performs.
