1-ESS1. Earth’s Place in the Universe - Students who demonstrate understanding can:

1-ESS1-2. Make observations at different times of year to relate the amount of daylight to the time of year.
1-ESS1.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas
ESS1.A: The Universe and its Stars
ESS1.A:1. Patterns of the motion of the sun, moon, and stars in the sky can be observed, described, and predicted. (1-ESS1-1)


1-LS1. From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes - Students who demonstrate understanding can:

1-LS1.CC. Crosscutting Concepts
1-LS1.CC.2. Structure and Function
1-LS1.CC.2.1. The shape and stability of structures of natural and designed objects are related to their function(s).
1-LS1.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas
LS1.A: Structure and Function
LS1.A:1. All organisms have external parts. Different animals use their body parts in different ways to see, hear, grasp objects, protect themselves, move from place to place, and seek, find, and take in food, water and air. Plants also have different parts (roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits) that help them survive and grow. (1-LS1-1)
LS1.B: Growth and Development of Organisms
LS1.B:1. Adult plants and animals can have young. In many kinds of animals, parents and the offspring themselves engage in behaviors that help the offspring to survive. (1-LS1-2)
LS1.D: Information Processing
LS1.D:1. Animals have body parts that capture and convey different kinds of information needed for growth and survival. Animals respond to these inputs with behaviors that help them survive. Plants also respond to some external inputs. (1-LS1-1)


1-PS4. Waves and their Applications in Technologies for Information Transfer - Students who demonstrate understanding can:

1-PS4-1. Plan and conduct investigations to provide evidence that vibrating materials can make sound and that sound can make materials vibrate.
1-PS4-2. Make observations to construct an evidence-based account that objects can be seen only when illuminated.
1-PS4-4. Use tools and materials to design and build a device that uses light or sound to solve the problem of communicating over a distance.
1-PS4.CETS. Connections to Engineering, Technology, and Applications of Science
1-PS4.CETS.1. Influence of Engineering, Technology, and Science, on Society and the Natural World
1-PS4.CETS.1.1. People depend on various technologies in their lives; human life would be very different without technology.
1-PS4.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas
PS4.A: Wave Properties
PS4.A:1. Sound can make matter vibrate, and vibrating matter can make sound. (1-PS4-1)
PS4.B: Electromagnetic Radiation
PS4.B:1. Objects can be seen only when light is available to illuminate them. Some objects give off their own light. (1-PS4-2)
