1-PS4-3 Waves and Their Applications in Technologies for Information Transfer

1-PS4-3   Waves and Their Applications in Technologies for Information Transfer

Students who demonstrate understanding can:

1-PS4-3. Plan and conduct investigations to determine the effect of placing objects made with different materials in the path of a beam of light. [Clarification Statement: Examples of materials could include those that are transparent (such as clear plastic), translucent (such as wax paper), opaque (such as cardboard), and reflective (such as a mirror).] [Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include the speed of light.]
The performance expectation above was developed using the following elements from the NRC document A Framework for K-12 Science Education:

Science and Engineering Practices

Planning and Carrying Out Investigations

Planning and carrying out investigations to answer questions or test solutions to problems in K–2 builds on prior experiences and progresses to simple investigations, based on fair tests, which provide data to support explanations or design solutions.

Disciplinary Core Ideas

PS4.B: Electromagnetic Radiation

Crosscutting Concepts

Cause and Effect

Connections to other DCIs in first grade: N/A

Articulation of DCIs across grade-levels:

2.PS1.A

Common Core State Standards Connections:

ELA/Literacy —
W.1.7 Participate in shared research and writing projects (e.g., explore a number of “how-to” books on a given topic and use them to write a sequence of instructions). (1-PS4-3)
W.1.8 With guidance and support from adults, recall information from experiences or gather information from provided sources to answer a question. (1-PS4-3)
SL.1.1 Participate in collaborative conversations with diverse partners about grade 1 topics and texts with peers and adults in small and larger groups. (1-PS4-3)
