Next Generation Science Standards

NGSS.MS-ESS. EARTH AND SPACE SCIENCE
MS-ESS2. Earth’s Systems - Students who demonstrate understanding can:
MS-ESS2.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas
ESS2.C: The Roles of Water in Earth’s Surface Processes
ESS2.C:1. Water continually cycles among land, ocean, and atmosphere via transpiration, evaporation, condensation and crystallization, and precipitation, as well as downhill flows on land. (MS-ESS2-4)
NGSS.MS-LS. LIFE SCIENCE
MS-LS1. From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes - Students who demonstrate understanding can:
MS-LS1-6. Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for the role of photosynthesis in the cycling of matter and flow of energy into and out of organisms.
MS-LS1.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas
LS1.C: Organization for Matter and Energy Flow in Organisms
LS1.C:1. Plants, algae (including phytoplankton), and many microorganisms use the energy from light to make sugars (food) from carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and water through the process of photosynthesis, which also releases oxygen. These sugars can be used immediately or stored for growth or later use. (MS-LS1-6)
PS3.D: Energy in Chemical Processes and Everyday Life
PS3.D:1. The chemical reaction by which plants produce complex food molecules (sugars) requires an energy input (i.e., from sunlight) to occur. In this reaction, carbon dioxide and water combine to form carbon-based organic molecules and release oxygen. (secondary to MS-LS1-6)
