College and Career Ready Standards
SC.7.3.1.A: Develop models to describe the atomic composition of simple molecules.
SC.7.3.1.C: Develop a model that predicts and describes changes in particle motion, temperature, and state of a pure substance when thermal energy is added or removed.
SC.7.5.2.A: Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred.
SC.7.5.2.B: Develop and use a model to describe how the total number of atoms does not change in a chemical reaction and thus mass is conserved.
SC.7.5.2.C: Undertake a design project to construct, test, and modify a device that either releases or absorbs thermal energy by chemical processes.
SC.7.5.2.D: Analyze data from tests 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.
SC.7.7.3.A: Construct an explanation that predicts patterns of interactions among organisms across multiple ecosystems.
SC.7.7.3.B: Evaluate competing design solutions for maintaining biodiversity and ecosystem services.
SC.7.7.3.C: Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
SC.7.7.3.D: Apply scientific principles to design a method for monitoring and increasing positive human impact on the environment.
SC.7.8.4.A: Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for the role of photosynthesis in the cycling of matter and flow of energy into and out of organisms.
SC.7.8.4.B: Develop a model to describe how food is rearranged through chemical reactions forming new molecules that support growth and/or release energy as matter moves through an organism.
SC.7.8.4.C: Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence for the effects of resource availability on organisms and populations of organisms in an ecosystem.
SC.7.8.4.D: Develop a model to describe the cycling of matter and flow of energy among living and nonliving parts of an ecosystem.
SC.7.8.4.E: Construct an argument supported by evidence that changes to physical or biological components of an ecosystem affect populations.
SC.7.13.5.A: Develop a model to describe the cycling of Earth's materials and the flow of energy that drives this process.
SC.7.13.5.B: Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for how the uneven distributions of Earth's mineral, energy, and groundwater resources are the result of past and current geoscience processes.
SC.7.13.5.C: Construct an argument supported by evidence for how increases in human population and per-capita consumption of natural resources impact Earth's systems.
SC.7.14.6.A: Construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience processes have changed Earth's surface at varying time and spatial scales.
SC.7.14.6.B: Analyze and interpret data on the distribution of fossils and rocks, continental shapes, and seafloor structures to provide evidence of past plate motions.
SC.7.14.6.C: Analyze and interpret data on natural hazards to forecast future catastrophic events and inform the development of technologies to mitigate their effects.
