K-ESS2. Earth’s Systems - Students who demonstrate understanding can:

K-ESS2-1. Use and share observations of local weather conditions to describe patterns over time.
K-ESS2.CC. Crosscutting Concepts
K-ESS2.CC.2. Systems and System Models
K-ESS2.CC.2.1. Systems in the natural and designed world have parts that work together.
K-ESS2.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas
ESS2.D: Weather and Climate
ESS2.D:1. Weather is the combination of sunlight, wind, snow or rain, and temperature in a particular region at a particular time. People measure these conditions to describe and record the weather and to notice patterns over time. (K-ESS2-1)

K-ESS3. Earth and Human Activity - Students who demonstrate understanding can:

K-ESS3-3. Communicate solutions that will reduce the impact of humans on the land, water, air, and/or other living things in the local environment.
K-ESS3.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas
ESS3.A: Natural Resources
ESS3.A:1. Living things need water, air, and resources from the land, and they live in places that have the things they need. Humans use natural resources for everything they do. (K-ESS3-1)


K-PS2. Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions - Students who demonstrate understanding can:

K-PS2-1. Plan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object.
K-PS2-2. Analyze data to determine if a design solution works as intended to change the speed or direction of an object with a push or a pull.
K-PS2.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas
PS2.A: Forces and Motion
PS2.A:1. Pushes and pulls can have different strengths and directions. (K-PS2-1), (K-PS2-2)PS2.A:2. Pushing or pulling on an object can change the speed or direction of its motion and can start or stop it. (K-PS2-1), (K-PS2-2)
PS2.B: Types of Interactions
PS2.B:1. When objects touch or collide, they push on one another and can change motion. (K-PS2-1)
