Core Disciplinary Ideas

• ESS1.B: Earth and the Solar System

o This model of the solar system can explain eclipses of the Sun and the moon. Earth’s spin axis is fixed in direction over the short-term but tilted relative to its orbit around the Sun. The seasons are a result of that tilt and are caused by the differential intensity of sunlight on different areas of Earth across the year (MS-ESS1-1)

• ESS1.B: Earth and the Solar System

o The orbits of Earth around the Sun and of the moon around Earth, together with the rotation of Earth about an axis between its North and South poles, cause observable patterns. These include day and night; daily changes in the length and direction of shadows; and different positions of the Sun, moon, and stars at different times of the day, month, and year. (5-ESS1-2)

Crosscutting Concepts: Patterns, Cause and Effect, Scale, Proportion, and Quantity, Systems and System Models, Energy and Matter

Scientific and Engineering Practices: Developing and using models, constructing explanations (for science), obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information

Science Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)

5.8CD – TSIET demonstrate that Earth rotates on its axis once approximately every 24 hours causing the day/night cycle and the apparent movement of the Sun across the sky; and compare the physical characteristics of the Sun, Earth, and Moon.

8.7A – TSIET model and illustrate how the tilted Earth rotates on its axis, causing day and night, and revolves around the Sun causing changes in seasons;

NGSSMS-ESS1-1
Develop and use a model of the Earth-sun-moon system to describe the cyclic patterns of lunar phases, eclipses of the sun and moon, and seasons. Examples of models can be physical, graphical, or conceptual.
NGSS5-ESS1-2
Represent data in graphical displays to reveal patterns of daily changes in length and direction of shadows, day and night, and the seasonal appearance of some stars in the night sky. Examples of patterns could include the position and motion of Earth with respect to the sun and selected stars that are visible only in particular months. Assessment does not include causes of seasons.
