New Hampshire College and Career Ready Standards
NH.SPS1. Science Process Skills: Scientific Inquiry and Critical Thinking Skills
S:SPS1:2:4.2. Representing and Understanding Results of Investigations: Students will identify and describe patterns and relationships in observed objects and events.
NH.SPS2. Science Process Skills: Unifying Concepts of Science
S:SPS2:2:3.2. Models and Scale: Students will explain how one way to describe something is to say how it is like something else.
S:SPS2:2:3.3. Models and Scale: Students will provide examples to explain that things in nature and things people make have very different sizes, weights, ages and speeds.
S:SPS2:2:4.3. Patterns of Change: Students will observe that things can change in different ways, such as in size, weight, color and movement.
NH.SPS3. Science Process Skills: Personal, Social, and Technological Perspectives
S:SPS3:2:3.1. Science and Technology, Technological Design and Application: Students will demonstrate that all tools have a special purpose (e.g., to measure, to help in observations, to make things or to make things better).
NH.SPS4. Science Process Skills: Science Skills for Information, Communication and Media Literacy
S:SPS4:2:1.2. Information and Media Literacy: Students will use tools.
NH.ESS4. Earth Space Science: The growth of scientific knowledge in Earth Space Science has been advanced through the development of technology and is used (alone or in combination with other sciences) to identify, understand and solve local and global issues.
S:ESS4:2:2.1. Tools: Students will recognize, and with assistance, safely demonstrate the use of tools to gather data and extend the senses, such as thermometers, hand lenses and balances.
NH.PS1. Physical Science: All living and nonliving things are composed of matter having characteristic properties that distinguish one substance from another (independent of size/amount of substance).
S:PS1:2:2.1. Properties: Students will identify the observable properties of different objects, such as color, size, shape, weight and texture.
NH.PS4. Physical Science: The growth of scientific knowledge in Physical Science has been advanced through the development of technology and is used (alone or in combination with other sciences) to identify, understand and solve local and global issues.
S:PS4:2:2.2. Tools: Students will demonstrate how to use tools, such as rulers, scales, balances, magnifiers and thermometers to measure properties of objects, such as size, weight, temperature.
