Next Generation Science Standards

Traveling Trunks are mapped to the following Next Generation Science Standards


K-LS1-1 Use observations to describe patterns of what plants and animals (including humans) need to survive
K0ESS2-2 Construct an argument supported by evidence for how plants and animals (including humans) can change the environment to meet their needs

1 1-PS4-1 Plan and conduct investigations to provide evidence that vibrating materials can make sound and that sound can make materials vibrate
K-2-ETS1-3 Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how each performs
2 2-PS1-1 Plan and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties
2-PS1-3 Make observations to construct an evidence-based account of how an object made of a small set of pieces can be disassembled and made into a new object
3 3-LS4-3 Construct an argument with evidence that in a particular habitat some organisms can survive well, some survive less well, and some cannot survive at all
3-ESS2-2 Obtain and combine information to describe climates in different regions of the world
4 4-PS3-3 Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents
4-LS1-2 Use a model to describe that animals receive different types of information through their senses, process the information in their brain, and respond to the information in different ways
5 5-PS1-3 Make observations and measurements to identify materials based on their properties
6-8 MS-PS4-2 Develop and use a model to describe that waves are reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through various materials
MS-PS4-3 Integrate qualitative scientific and technical information to support the claim that digitized signals are a more reliable way to encode and transmit information than analog signals
9-12 HS-PS305 Develop and use a model of two objects interacting through electric or magnetic fields to illustrate the forces between objects and the changes in energy of the objects due to the interaction
HS-PS4-2 Evaluate questions about the advantages of using digital transmission and storage of information
HS-PS4-5 Communicate technical information about how some technological devices use the principles of wave behavior and wave interactions with matter to transmit and capture information and energy
