Description

Students will learn about sunlight and shade in this kindergarten science unit for NGSS K-PS3-1 and K-PS3-2. Students will learn that the Sun heats Earth’s materials and that shade can reduce the warming effects of the Sun. Students will use engineering skills to create a shade structure. The lessons use phenomena. Also for Utah SEEd kindergarten.

This resource includes:

  • a hands-on engineering project
  • lesson plans
  • sorting cards for a center
  • worksheets
  • a little book to practice reading.  

This resource is aligned with the following standards:

NGSS K-PS3-1. Make observations to determine the effect of sunlight on the Earth’s surface. [Clarification Statement: Examples of Earth’s surface could include sand, soil, rocks, and water] [Assessment Boundary: Assessment of temperature is limited to relative measures such as warmer/cooler.]

K-PS3-2. Use tools and materials to design and build a structure that will reduce the warming effect of sunlight on an area.*

Also aligns with Utah SEEd

Standard K.1.3 Carry out an investigation using the five senses, to determine the effect of sunlight on different surfaces and materials. Examples could include measuring temperature, through touch or other methods, on natural and man-made materials in various locations throughout the day. (PS3.B) Standard K.1.4 Design a solution that will reduce the warming effect of sunlight on an area. Define the problem by asking questions and gathering information, convey designs through sketches, drawings, or physical models, and compare and test designs. (PS3.B, ETS1.A, ETS1.B, ETS1.C)

NGSSK-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.
NGSSK-PS3-1
Make observations to determine the effect of sunlight on Earth's surface. Examples of Earth's surface could include sand, soil, rocks, and water. Assessment of temperature is limited to relative measures such as warmer/cooler.
NGSSK-PS3-2
Use tools and materials to design and build a structure that will reduce the warming effect of sunlight on an area. Examples of structures could include umbrellas, canopies, and tents that minimize the warming effect of the sun.
