NGSS Science 5 Earth and Human Activity 5-ESS3-1 -- Obtain and combine information about ways individual communities use science ideas to protect the Earth’s resources and environment.
NGSS Science 5 Earth and Human Activity 5-ESS3.C Disciplinary Core Ideas: Human Impacts on Earth Systems Human activities in agriculture, industry, and everyday life have had major effects on the land, vegetation, streams, ocean, air, and even outer space. But individuals and communities are doing things to help protect Earth’s resources and environments.
NGSS Science 5 Matter and Its Interactions 5-PS1-1 Science and Engineering Practices: Developing and Using Models Develop a model to describe phenomena.
NGSS Science 5 Matter and Its Interactions 5-PS1-3 Science and Engineering Practices: Planning and Carrying Out Investigations Make observations and measurements to produce data to serve as the basis for evidence for an explanation of a phenomenon.
CCSS ELA-Literacy 6 Science and Technical Subjects 6-8.RST.6 Key Ideas and Details Follow precisely a multistep procedure when carrying out experiments, taking measurements, or performing technical tasks.
CCSS ELA-Literacy 6 Science and Technical Subjects 6-8.RST.7 Integration of Knowledge and Ideas Integrate quantitative or technical information expressed in words in a text with a version of that information expressed visually (e.g., in a flowchart, diagram, model, graph, or table).
CCSS ELA-Literacy 6 Science and Technical Subjects 6-8.RST.9 Integration of Knowledge and Ideas Compare and contrast the information gained from experiments, simulations, video, or multimedia sources with that gained from reading a text on the same topic.
NGSS Science 6 Earth and Human Activity 6-ESS3.D Disciplinary Core Ideas: Global Climate Change Human activities, such as the release of greenhouse gases from burning fossil fuels, are major factors in the current rise in Earth’s mean surface temperature (global warming). Reducing the level of climate change and reducing human vulnerability to whatever climate changes do occur depend on the understanding of climate science, engineering capabilities, and other kinds of knowledge, such as understanding of human behavior and on applying that knowledge wisely in decisions and activities.
NGSS Science 6 Earth and Human Activity 6-MS-ESS3-3 Science and Engineering Practices: Constructing Explanations and Designing Solutions Apply scientific principles to design an object, tool, process, or system.
NGSS Science 6 Earth and Human Activity 6-MS-ESS3-3 -- Apply scientific principles to design a method for monitoring and minimizing a human impact on the environment.
NGSS Science 6 Energy 6-MS-PS3-3 Crosscutting Concepts: Energy and Matter The transfer of energy can be tracked as energy flows through a designed or natural system.
NGSS Science 6 Energy 6-MS-PS3-3 Science and Engineering Practices: Constructing Explanations and Designing Solutions Apply scientific ideas or principles to design, construct, and test a design of an object, tool, process, or system.
NGSS Science 6 Energy 6-MS-PS3-3 -- Apply scientific principles to design, construct, and test a device that either minimizes or maximizes thermal energy transfer.
NGSS Science 6 Energy 6-MS-PS3-4 Connections to Nature of Science: Scientific Knowledge Is Based on Empirical Evidence Science knowledge is based upon logical and conceptual connections between evidence and explanations.
NGSS Science 6 Energy 6-MS-PS3-5 Science and Engineering Practices: Engaging in Argument from Evidence Construct, use, and present oral and written arguments supported by empirical evidence and scientific reasoning to support or refute an explanation or a model for a phenomenon.
NGSS Science 7 Earth and Human Activity 7-ESS3.A Natural Resources Humans depend on Earth’s land, ocean, atmosphere, and biosphere for many different resources. Minerals, fresh water, and biosphere resources are limited, and many are not renewable or replaceable over human lifetimes. These resources are distributed unevenly around the planet as a result of past geologic processes.
NGSS Science 7 Earth and Human Activity 7-MS-ESS3-1 Crosscutting Concepts: Influence of Science, Engineering, and Technology on Society and the Natural World All human activity draws on natural resources and has both short and long-term consequences, positive as well as negative, for the health of people and the natural environment.
NGSS Science 7 Earth and Human Activity 7-MS-ESS3-2 Science and Engineering Practices: Analyzing and Interpreting Data Analyze and interpret data to determine similarities and differences in findings.
