College and Career Ready Standards
SC.6.4.1.A: Apply scientific principles to design, construct, and test a device that either minimizes or maximizes thermal energy transfer.
SC.6.4.1.B: Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution, taking into account relevant scientific principle and potential impacts on people and the natural environment that may limit possible solutions.
SC.6.4.1.C: Plan an investigation to determine the relationships among the energy transferred, the type of matter, the mass, and the change in the average kinetic energy of the particles as measured by the temperature of the sample.
SC.6.4.1.D: Construct, use, and present arguments to support the claim that when the kinetic energy of an object changes, energy is transferred to or from the object.
SC.6.6.2.A: Conduct an investigation to provide evidence that living things are made of cells; either one cell or many different numbers and types of cells.
SC.6.6.2.B: Develop and use a model to describe the function of a cell as a whole and ways parts of cells contribute to the function.
SC.6.6.2.C: Use argument supported by evidence for how the body is a system of interacting subsystems composed of groups of cells.
SC.6.6.2.D: Gather and synthesize information that sensory receptors respond to stimuli by sending messages to the brain for immediate behavior or storage as memories.
SC.6.9.3.A: Construct an argument based on evidence for how plant and animal adaptations affect the probability of successful reproduction.
SC.6.9.3.B: Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for how environmental and genetic factors influence the growth of organisms.
SC.6.9.3.C: Develop and use a model to describe why asexual reproduction results in offspring with identical genetic information and sexual reproduction results in offspring with genetic variation.
SC.6.12.4.A: Collect data to provide evidence for how the motions and complex interactions of air masses result in changes in weather conditions.
SC.6.12.4.C: Ask questions to clarify evidence of the factors that have caused the change in global temperatures over thousands of years.
SC.6.12.4.D: Analyze and interpret data on weather and climate to forecast future catastrophic events and inform the development of technologies to mitigate their effect.
SC.6.13.5.A: Develop a model to describe the cycling of water through Earth’s systems driven by energy from the sun and the force of gravity.
