PS1: Matter and Its Interactions

PS1.A: Structure and Properties of Matter

PS1.A.1: Develop a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen.

 Phase Changes
 Phases of Water
 Solubility and Temperature

PS1.A.2: Measure and graph quantities to provide evidence that regardless of the type of change that occurs when heating, cooling, or mixing substances, the total weight of matter is conserved.

 Chemical Changes

PS1.B: Types of Interactions of Matter

PS1.B.2: Conduct an investigation to determine whether the combining of two or more substances results in new substances.

 Chemical Changes

PS3: Energy

PS3.D: Energy in Chemical Process and Everyday

PS3.D.1: Use models to describe that energy stored in food (used for body repair, growth, motion, and to maintain body warmth) was once energy from the sun.

 Cell Energy Cycle
 Energy Conversions

LS1: From Molecules to Organisms: Structure and Processes

LS1.C: Organization for Matter and Energy Flow in Organisms

LS1.C.1: Support an argument that plants get the materials (i.e. carbon dioxide, water, sunlight) they need for growth chiefly from air and water.

 Cell Energy Cycle
 Plants and Snails

LS2: Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics

LS2.B: Cycles of Matter and Energy Transfer in Ecosystems

LS2.B.1: Develop a model to describe the movement of matter among plants, animals, decomposers, and the environment.

ESS1: Earth's Place in the Universe

ESS1.B: Earth and the Solar System

ESS1.B.1: Make observations during different seasons to relate the amount of daylight to the time of year.

 Comparing Earth and Venus
 Summer and Winter

ESS1.B.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.

 Seasons: Earth, Moon, and Sun

ESS2: Earth's Systems

ESS2.A: Earth Materials and Systems

ESS2.A.1: Develop a model using an example to describe ways the geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and/or atmosphere interact.

 Carbon Cycle
 Coastal Winds and Clouds
 Greenhouse Effect
 Hurricane Motion
 Rock Cycle
 Water Cycle

ESS2.C: The Role of Water in Earth's Surface Processes

ESS2.C.1: Describe and graph the amounts and percentages of water and fresh water in various reservoirs to provide evidence about the distribution of water on Earth.

 Water Cycle

ETS1: Engineering Design

ETS1.A: Defining and Delimiting Engineering Problems

ETS1.A.1: Define a simple design problem reflecting a need or a want that includes specified criteria for success and constraints on materials, time, or cost.


ETS1.B: Developing Possible Solutions

ETS1.B.1: Generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
