Science: EALR 2 Inquiry, Content Standard 2-3 INQA

Scientific investigations are designed to gain knowledge about the natural world.


Science: EALR 2 Inquiry, Content Standard 2-3 INQB

A scientific investigation may include making and following a plan to accurately observe and describe objects, events, and organisms; make and record measurements, and predict outcomes.


Science: EALR 2 Inquiry, Content Standard 2-3 INQC

Inferences are based on observations.


Science: EALR 2 Inquiry, Content Standard 2-3 INQD

Simple instruments, such as magnifiers, thermometers, and rulers provide more information than scientists can obtain using only their unaided senses.


Science: EALR 2 Inquiry, Content Standard 2-3 INQE

Models are useful for understanding systems that are too big, too small, or too dangerous to study directly.


Science: EALR 2 Inquiry, Content Standard 2-3 INQF

Scientists develop explanations, using observations (evidence) and what they already know about the world. Explanations should be based on evidence from investigations.


Science: EALR 2 Inquiry, Content Standard 2-3 INQG

Scientists make the results of their investigations public, even when the results contradict their expectations.


Science: EALR 4 Physical Science, Content Standard 2-3 PS3A

Heat, light, motion, electricity, and sound are all forms of energy.


Science: EALR 4 Earth and Space Science, Content Standard 2-3 ES2A

Water plays an essential role in Earth systems, including shaping landforms.


Science: EALR 4 Earth and Space Science, Content Standard 2-3 ES2B

Water can be a liquid or solid and can go back and forth from one form to another. If water is turned into ice and then the ice is allowed to melt, the amount of water will be the same as it was before freezing. Water occurs in the air as rain, snow, hail, fog, and clouds.


Science: EALR 4 Earth and Space Science, Content Standard 2-3 ES2C

Weather changes from day to day and over the seasons. Weather can be described by measurable quantities, such as temperature and precipitation.


Science: EALR 4 Life Science, Content Standard 2-3 LS2A

Ecosystems support all life on the planet, including human life, by providing food, fresh water, and breathable air.


Science: EALR 4 Life Science, Content Standard 2-3 LS2B

All ecosystems change over time as a result of natural causes (e.g., storms, floods, volcanic eruptions, fire). Some of these changes are beneficial for the plants and animals, some are harmful, and some have no effect.


Science: EALR 4 Life Science, Content Standard 2-3 LS2C

Some changes in ecosystems occur slowly and others occur rapidly. Changes can affect life forms, including humans.


Science: EALR 4 Life Science, Content Standard 2-3 LS2D

Humans impact ecosystems in both positive and negative ways. Humans can help improve the health of ecosystems so that they provide habitats for plants and animals and resources for humans over the long term. For example, if people use fewer resources and recycle waste, there will be fewer negative impacts on natural systems.


Social Studies GLE 3.2.1 (Grade 2)

3.2.1 Understands that people in communities affect the environment as they meet their needs and wants.


Social Studies GLE 3.2.1 (Grade 3)

3.2.1 Understands how the environment affects cultural groups and how cultural groups affect the environment.


Social Studies GLE 5.1.1 (Grade 2)

5.1.1 Understands multiple points of view on issues in the community.


Social Studies GLE 5.1.2 (Grade 3)

5.1.2 Evaluates if information is clear, specific, and detailed.
