Use or revise a model to describe the cycling of water through Earth’s systems (land, ocean and atmosphere) driven by energy from the sun and the force of gravity.
Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem to ensure a successful solution, and potential impacts on people and the environment that may limit possible solutions.
Engineering and Technology
Support a scientific explanation to describe how environmental factors influence the growth of organisms (plants and animals).
Life Science 1
Compare patterns of interactions among organisms in different ecosystems (interactions include competition, predatory, and mutually beneficial).
Life Science 2
Interpret data on the characteristic physical and chemical properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred.
Physical Science 1
With peer or teacher support plan an investigation and use evidence to determine how change in an object’s motion depends on the net force on the object and the mass of the object.
