SCIENCE: Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)
NGSS.2-ESS. EARTH AND SPACE SCIENCE 2-ESS1. Earth’s Place in the Universe Students who demonstrate understanding can: 2-ESS1-1. Make observations from media to construct an evidence-based account that Earth events can occur quickly or slowly.
2-ESS2. Earth’s Systems Students who demonstrate understanding can: 2-ESS2-2. Develop a model to represent the shapes and kinds of land and bodies of water in an area.
2-ESS2-3. Obtain information to identify where water is found on Earth and that it can be solid or liquid.
NGSS.2-LS. LIFE SCIENCE 2-LS2. Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics Students who demonstrate understanding can: 2-LS2-1. Plan and conduct an investigation to determine if plants need sunlight and water to grow.
2-LS2-2. Develop a simple model that mimics the function of an animal in dispersing seeds or pollinating plants.
2-LS4. Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity Students who demonstrate understanding can: 2-LS4-1. Make observations of plants and animals to compare the diversity of life in different habitats[Clarification Statement: Emphasis is on the diversity of living things in each of a variety of different habitats.] [Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include specific animal and plant names in specific habitats.]
NGSS.2-PS. PHYSICAL SCIENCE 2-PS1. Matter and its Interactions Students who demonstrate understanding can: 2-PS1-4. Construct an argument with evidence that some changes caused by heating or cooling can be reversed and some cannot.
