Science On Your Street Curriculum Standards

EXPORE YOUR HABITAT

NORTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION

3.E.2 Compare the structures of the Earth’s surface using models or three-dimensional diagrams.  

3.E.2.1 Compare Earth’s saltwater and freshwater features (including oceans, seas, rivers, lakes, ponds, streams, and glaciers).  

3.E.2.2 Compare Earth’s land features (including volcanoes, mountains, valleys, canyons, caverns, and islands) by using models, pictures, diagrams, and maps. 

4.E.2.3 Give examples of how the surface of the earth changes due to slow processes such as erosion and weathering, and rapid processes such as landslides, volcanic eruptions, and earthquakes. 

 

 

CHARIOT RACES

NEXT GENERATION SCIENCE STANDARDS

3-5-EST1-1; Define a simple design problem reflecting a need or a want that includes specified criteria for success and constraints on materials, time, or cost.

3-5-ETS1-2: Generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.

3-5-ETS1-3: Plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.

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.

 

NORTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION

5.P.1.1: Explain how factors such as gravity, friction, and change in mass affect the motion of objects.

6.H.1.3: Use primary and secondary sources to interpret various historical perspectives.

6.H.2.3: Explain how innovation and/or technology transformed civilizations, societies and regions over time (e.g., agricultural technology, weaponry, transportation and communication).

 

MISSION: INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION

NEXT GENERATION SCIENCE STANDARDS

MS-ETS1-1: Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution, taking into account relevant scientific principles and potential impacts on people and the natural environment that may limit possible solutions.

MS-ETS1-4: Develop a model to generate data for iterative testing and modification of a proposed object, tool, or process such that optimal design can be achieved.

NATIONAL HEALTH EDUCATION STANDARDS

Standard 4: Students will demonstrate the ability to use interpersonal communication skills to enhance health and avoid or reduce health risks.

NATIONAL PHYSICAL EDUCATION STANDARDS

Standard 1: The physically literate individual demonstrates competency in a variety of motor skills and movement patterns.

 

CODING WITH CUBETTO

NORTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION

K.P.1 Understand the positions and motions of objects and organisms observed in the environment.

K.G.1 Use geographic representations and terms to describe surroundings. 

K.G.2.1 Explain how people adapt to weather conditions. 

1.G.1.3 Understand basic elements of geographic representations using maps (cardinal directions and map symbols). 

CCR Anchor Standard SL.1 Prepare for and participate effectively in a range of conversations and collaborations with diverse partners, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly and persuasively. 

CCR Anchor Standard RI.3 – Analyze how and why individuals, events, and ideas develop and interact over the course of a text. 

 

COSMIC CODING

NORTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION

NC.4.MD.1 Know relative sizes of measurement units. Solve problems involving metric measurement.

NC.4.MD.2 Use multiplicative reasoning to convert metric measurements from a larger unit to a smaller unit using place value understanding, two-column tables, and length models.

NC.4.MD.6 Develop an understanding of angles and angle measurement.

NC.5.MD.1 Given a conversion chart, use multiplicative reasoning to solve one-step conversion problems within a given measurement system
