The resources above correspond to the standards listed below:

New Hampshire Standards

NH.LS5. Life Science: The growth of scientific knowledge in Life 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:LS5:6:2.1. Design Technology: Students will demonstrate the appropriate use of tools, such as thermometers, probes, microscopes and computers to gather, analyze and interpret data in the life sciences.
NH.SPS1. Science Process Skills: Scientific Inquiry and Critical Thinking Skills
S:SPS1:6:1.1. Making Observations and Asking Questions: Students will apply skills from previous grades and make observations and record measurements using a variety of tools and instruments.
S:SPS1:6:1.2. Making Observations and Asking Questions: Students will apply skills from previous grades and plan observations based on a given purpose.
S:SPS1:6:1.3. Making Observations and Asking Questions: Students will apply skills from previous grades and identify and investigate similarities and differences among observations and sets of observations.
S:SPS1:6:1.6. Making Observations and Asking Questions: Students will apply skills from previous grades and construct a simple classification key.
S:SPS1:6:1.7. Making Observations and Asking Questions: Students will apply skills from previous grades and compare methods of classification for a specific purpose.
S:SPS1:6:2.2. Designing Scientific Investigations: Students will apply skills from previous grades and identify and utilize appropriate tools/technology for collecting data in designing investigations.
S:SPS1:6:2.3. Designing Scientific Investigations: Students will apply skills from previous grades and incorporate components of good experimental design, such as controls and multiple trials, into investigations.
S:SPS1:6:3.2. Conducting Scientific Investigations: Students will apply skills from previous grades and use appropriate tools to collect and record data.
S:SPS1:6:3.3. Conducting Scientific Investigations: Students will apply skills from previous grades and follow the teacher's instructions in performing experiments, following all appropriate safety rules and procedures.
S:SPS1:6:4.1. Representing and Understanding Results of Investigations: Students will apply skills from previous grades and use appropriate tools to organize, represent, analyze and explain data.
S:SPS1:6:4.4. Representing and Understanding Results of Investigations: Students will apply skills from previous grades and identify patterns and relationships in data and formulate basic explanations.
S:SPS1:6:4.5. Representing and Understanding Results of Investigations: Students will apply skills from previous grades and draw appropriate conclusions based on data collected.
S:SPS1:6:5.1. Evaluating Scientific Explanations: Students will apply skills from previous grades and determine if the results of an experiment support or fail to support the scientific idea tested.
NH.SPS2. Science Process Skills: Unifying Concepts of Science
S:SPS2:6:3.1. Models and Scale: Students will apply skills from previous grades and understand that models are often used to think about processes that happen too slowly, too quickly, or on too small a scale to observe directly; or that are too vast to be changed deliberately; or that are potentially dangerous.
NH.SPS4. Science Process Skills: Science Skills for Information, Communication and Media Literacy
S:SPS4:6:1.3. Information and Media Literacy: Students will apply skills from previous grades and use appropriate tools to analyze and synthesize information (e.g., diagrams, flow charts, frequency tables, bar graphs, line graphs, stem-and-leaf plots) to draw conclusions and implications based on investigations of an issue or question.
S:SPS4:6:4.2. Problem Identification, Formulation, and Solution: Students will apply skills from previous grades and use evidence collected from observations or other sources and use them to create models and explanations.
S:SPS4:6:8.1. Accountability and Adaptability: Students will apply skills from previous grades and develop and execute a plan to collect and record accurate and complete data from various sources to solve a problem or answer a question; and gather and critically analyze data from a variety of sources.
