 Physical Science
Forces and Interactions: Pushes and Pulls
PS2-1. Plan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object.
PS2-2. Analyze data to determine if a design solution works as intended to change the speed or direction of an object with a push or a pull.
PS3-1. Make observations to determine the effect of sunlight on Earth’s surface.
PS3-2. Use tools and materials to design and build a structure that will reduce the warming effect of sunlight on an area.

Life Science
Interdependent Relationships in Ecosystems: Animals, Plants, and Their Environment
LS1-1. Use observations to describe patterns of what plants and animals (including humans) need to survive.

Earth Science
Weather and Climate
ESS2-1. Use and share observations of local weather conditions to describe patterns over time.
ESS2-2. Construct an argument supported by evidence for how plants and animals (including humans) can change the environment to meet their needs.
ESS3-1. Use a model to represent the relationship between the needs of different plants or animals (including humans) and the places they live.
ESS3-2. Ask questions to obtain information about the purpose of weather forecasting to prepare for, and respond to, severe weather.
ESS3-3. Communicate solutions that will reduce the impact of humans on the land, water, air, and/or other living things in the local environment.

Engineering Design
2-ETS1-1. Ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.
