Wisconsin Academic Standards
SCI.CC. Crosscutting Concepts (CC)
SCI.CC1. Students use science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas, and patterns to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.
SCI.CC1.K-2. Students recognize that patterns in the natural and human designed world can be observed, used to describe phenomena, and used as evidence.
SCI.SEP. Science and Engineering Practices (SEP)
SCI.SEP3. Students plan and carry out investigations, in conjunction with using crosscutting concepts and disciplinary core ideas, to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.
SCI.SEP3.A. Planning and Conducting Investigations – Students plan and carry out simple investigations, based on fair tests, which provide data to support explanations or design solutions. This includes the following:
SCI.SEP3.A.K-2.3. Evaluate different ways of observing and measuring a phenomenon to determine which way can answer the question being studied.
SCI.SEP3.A.K-2.4. Make observations (firsthand or from media) and measurements to collect data that can be used to make comparisons.
SCI.SEP3.A.K-2.5. Make observations (firsthand or from media) and measurements of a proposed object or tool or solution to determine if it solves a problem or meets a goal.
SCI.SEP4. Students analyze and interpret data, in conjunction with using crosscutting concepts and disciplinary core ideas, to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.
SCI.SEP4.A. Analyze and Interpret Data – Students collect, record, and share observations. This includes the following:
SCI.SEP4.A.K-2.3. Use observations (firsthand or from media) to describe patterns or relationships in the natural and designed worlds in order to answer scientific questions and solve problems.
SCI.ETS. Disciplinary Core Idea: Engineering, Technology, and the Application of Science (ETS)
SCI.ETS2. Students use science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and an understanding of the links among Engineering, Technology, Science, and Society to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.
SCI.ETS2.A. Interdependence of Science, Engineering, and Technology
SCI.ETS2.A.K-2. Science and engineering involve the use of tools to observe and measure things.
