2-PS1-3 Matter and Its Interactions

2-PS1-3   Matter and Its Interactions

Students who demonstrate understanding can:

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. [Clarification Statement: Examples of pieces could include blocks, building bricks, or other assorted small objects.]
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

Constructing Explanations and Designing Solutions

Constructing explanations and designing solutions in K–2 builds on prior experiences and progresses to the use of evidence and ideas in constructing evidence-based accounts of natural phenomena and designing solutions.

Disciplinary Core Ideas

PS1.A: Structure and Properties of Matter

Crosscutting Concepts

Energy and Matter

Connections to other DCIs in second grade: N/A

Articulation of DCIs across grade-levels:

4.ESS2.A ; 5.PS1.A ; 5.LS2.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-PS1-3)
W.2.8 Recall information from experiences or gather information from provided sources to answer a question. (2-PS1-3)
