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.
2-ESS2.CC. Crosscutting Concepts 2-ESS2.CC.2. Stability and Change 2-ESS2.CC.2.1. Things may change slowly or rapidly. (2-ESS2-1)
2-ESS2.CNS. Connections to Nature of Science 2-ESS2.CNS.1. Science Addresses Questions About the Natural and Material World 2-ESS2.CNS.1.1. Scientists study the natural and material world. (2-ESS2-1)
2-ESS2.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas ESS2.C: The Roles of Water in Earth’s Surface Processes ESS2.C:1. Water is found in the ocean, rivers, lakes, and ponds. Water exists as solid ice and in liquid form. (2-ESS2-3)
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-LS2.CC. Crosscutting Concepts 2-LS2.CC.2. Structure and Function 2-LS2.CC.2.1. The shape and stability of structures of natural and designed objects are related to their function(s). (2-LS2-2) Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game & Study Guide Plants
2-LS2.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas LS2.A: Interdependent Relationships in Ecosystems LS2.A:1. Plants depend on water and light to grow. (2-LS2-1)
LS2.A:2. Plants depend on animals for pollination or to move their seeds around. (2-LS2-2)
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.]
2-LS4.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas LS4.D: Biodiversity and Humans LS4.D:1. There are many different kinds of living things in any area, and they exist in different places on land and in water. (2-LS4-1)
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.
2-PS1.CC. Crosscutting Concepts 2-PS1.CC.3. Energy and Matter 2-PS1.CC.3.1. Objects may break into smaller pieces and be put together into larger pieces, or change shapes. (2-PS1-3)
2-PS1.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas PS1.A: Structure and Properties of Matter PS1.A:1. Different kinds of matter exist and many of them can be either solid or liquid, depending on temperature. Matter can be described and classified by its observable properties. (2-PS1-1)
PS1.A:3. A great variety of objects can be built up from a small set of pieces. (2-PS1-3)
2-PS1.SEP. Science and Engineering Practices 2-PS1.SEP.3. Constructing Explanations and Designing Solutions - Constructing explanations and designing solutions in K–2 builds on prior experiences and progresses to the use of evidence and ideas in constructing evidence-based accounts of natural phenomena and designing solutions. 2-PS1.SEP.3.1. Make observations (firsthand or from media) to construct an evidence-based account for natural phenomena. (2-PS1-3)
