S.1.GLE.3.RA: Relevance and Application:
S.1.GLE.3.RA.1: The freezing, thawing, and vaporization of Earth?s water provide examples of physical changes.
S.1.GLE.3.N: Nature of Science:
S.1.GLE.3.N.1: Evaluate the reproducibility of an experiment, and critically examine conflicts in experimental results.
S.1.GLE.3.N.2: Share experimental data, and respectfully discuss conflicting results emulating the practice of scientists.
S.1.GLE.4: Recognize that waves such as electromagnetic, sound, seismic, and water have common characteristics and unique properties
S.1.GLE.4.IQ: Inquiry Questions:
S.1.GLE.4.IQ.1: What are some different ways to describe waves?
S.2.GLE.1: Human activities can deliberately or inadvertently alter ecosystems and their resiliency
S.2.GLE.1.RA: Relevance and Application:
S.2.GLE.1.RA.1: Human activities such as cutting down forests and polluting water or covering deserts with fields of solar panels are constantly changing various cycles and habitats in the natural world.
S.2.GLE.2: Organisms reproduce and transmit genetic information (genes) to offspring, which influences individuals? traits in the next generation
S.2.GLE.2.IQ: Inquiry Questions:
S.2.GLE.2.IQ.1: How are traits passed from one generation to the next?
S.2.GLE.2.IQ.2: What traits can be passed to the next generation and what traits cannot?
