1: obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to identify surface features on Earth caused by constructive and/or destructive processes

1.a: construct an argument supported by scientific evidence to identify surface features (examples could include deltas, sea arches, sand dunes, mountains, canyons, and volcanoes) as being caused by constructive and/or destructive processes (examples could include plate movement, deposition, weathering, erosion, impact of organisms)

Building Pangaea
Plate Tectonics

1.b: develop simple, interactive models to collect data that illustrate how changes in surface features are/were caused by constructive and/or destructive processes

Building Pangaea
Plate Tectonics

2: obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to investigate electricity

2.a: obtain information from multiple sources to explain the difference between static electricity (naturally occurring) and current electricity (human-harnessed)

Charge Launcher
Circuit Builder
Circuits

2.b: design a complete, simple electric circuit, and explain all necessary components

Circuit Builder
Circuits

2.c: plan and carry out an investigation to test common materials to determine if they are insulators or conductors of electricity

Circuit Builder

3: obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about magnetism and its relationship to electricity

Magnetic Induction

4: obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to explain the differences between a physical change and a chemical change

4.b: construct an argument based on observations that the physical changes in the state of water are due to temperature changes, which cause small particles that cannot be seen to move differently

Phases of Water

4.c: plan and carry out an investigation to determine if a chemical change occurred based on observable evidence (color, gas, temperature change, odor, and/or new substances produced)

Chemical Changes

5: obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about how microorganisms benefit or harm larger organisms

5.b: construct an argument using scientific evidence to support an argument that some microorganisms are harmful

Disease Spread
Virus Lytic Cycle

7: obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to compare and contrast the parts of plant and animal cells

7.a: gather evidence by utilizing magnification tools to construct an explanation that plants and animals are comprised of cells too small to be seen without magnification

Cell Structure

7.b: develop a model to identify and label parts of a plant cell (membrane, wall, cytoplasm, nucleus, chloroplasts) and of an animal cell (membrane, cytoplasm, and nucleus).

Cell Structure

7.c: construct an explanation that differentiates between the structure of plant and animal cells

Cell Structure

7.d: construct an explanation to explain the function of plant and animal organelles (cell membrane, cytoplasm, cell wall, nucleus, and chloroplast)

Cell Structure

8: obtain, evaluate, and communicate information showing that some characteristics of organisms are inherited and other characteristics are acquired

8.b: ask questions to compare and contrast inherited and acquired physical traits

Inheritance

8.c: construct an explanation to compare and contrast inherited and acquired physical traits

Inheritance
