7.PS: Physical Science

7.PS.1: Draw, construct models, or use animations to differentiate between atoms, elements, molecules, and compounds.

 Element Builder

7.PS.2: Describe the properties of solids, liquids, and gases. Develop models that predict and describe changes in particle motion, density, temperature, and state of a pure substance when thermal energy is added or removed.

 Phases of Water

7.PS.4: Investigate Newton’s first law of motion (Law of Inertia) and how different forces (gravity, friction, push and pull) affect the velocity of an object.

 Force and Fan Carts

7.PS.5: Investigate Newton’s second law of motion to show the relationship among force, mass and acceleration.

 Force and Fan Carts

7.PS.6: Investigate Newton’s third law of motion to show the relationship between action and reaction forces.

 Force and Fan Carts

7.ESS: Earth and Space Science

7.ESS.1: Identify and investigate the properties of minerals. Identify and classify a variety of rocks based on physical characteristics from their origin, and explain how they are related using the rock cycle. (i.e. Sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic rocks)

 Rock Cycle

7.LS: Life Science

7.LS.1: Investigate and observe cells in living organisms and collect evidence showing that living things are made of cells. Compare and provide examples of prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms. Identify the characteristics of living things.

 Pond Ecosystem

7.LS.4: Research and describe the functions and relationships between various cell types, tissues, and organs in the immune system, circulatory system and digestive system of the human body.

 Circulatory System

7.LS.5: Compare and contrast the form and function of the organelles found in plant and animal cells.

 Cell Structure
 RNA and Protein Synthesis

6-8.E: Engineering

6-8.E.3: Analyze data from investigations to determine similarities and differences among several design solutions to identify the best characteristics of each that can be combined into a new solution to better meet the criteria for success.


6-8.E.4: Develop a prototype to generate data for repeated investigations and modify a proposed object, tool, or process such that an optimal design can be achieved.
