Arizona's College and Career Ready Standards
Core Ideas for Using Science
U3: Applications of science often have both positive and negative ethical, social, economic, and/or political implications.
Second Grade: Focus on Systems and System Models; Energy and Matter
Earth and Space Sciences: Students develop an understanding of the distribution and role of water and wind in weather, shaping the land, and where organisms live. Wind and water can also change environments, and students learn humans and other organisms can change environments too. Students develop an understanding of changing patterns in the sky including the position of Sun, Moon, and stars, and the apparent shape of the Moon.
