2-PS1-1 Matter and Its Interactions

2-PS1-1   Matter and Its Interactions

Students who demonstrate understanding can:

2-PS1-1. Plan and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties. [Clarification Statement: Observations could include color, texture, hardness, and flexibility. Patterns could include the similar properties that different materials share.]
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

PS1.A: Structure and Properties of Matter

Crosscutting Concepts

Patterns

Connections to other DCIs in second grade: N/A

Articulation of DCIs across grade-levels:

5.PS1.A

Common Core State Standards Connections:

ELA/Literacy —
W.2.7 Participate in shared research and writing projects (e.g., read a number of books on a single topic to produce a report; record science observations). (2-PS1-1)
W.2.8 Recall information from experiences or gather information from provided sources to answer a question. (2-PS1-1)
Mathematics —
MP.4 Model with mathematics. (2-PS1-1)
2.MD.D.10 Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with single-unit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple put-together, take-apart, and compare problems using information presented in a bar graph. (2-PS1-1)
