PS Physical Sciences
- 6-MS-PS1 Matter and Its Interactions
- 6-MS-PS1-1 Develop models to describe the atomic composition of simple molecules and extended structures.
- 6-MS-PS2 Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions
- 6-MS-PS2-1 Apply Newton’s Third Law to design a solution to a problem involving the motion of two colliding objects.
- 6-MS-PS2-2 Plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object’s motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object.
- 6-MS-PS2-3 Ask questions about data to determine the factors that affect the strength of electric and magnetic forces.
- 6-MS-PS2-4 Construct and present arguments using evidence to support the claim that gravitational interactions are attractive and depend on the masses of interacting objects.
- 6-MS-PS2-5 Conduct an investigation and evaluate the experimental design to provide evidence that fields exist between objects exerting forces on each other even though the objects are not in contact.
- 6-MS-PS3 Energy
- 6-MS-PS3-1 Construct and interpret graphical displays of data to describe the relationships of kinetic energy to the mass of an object and to the speed of an object.
- 6-MS-PS3-2 Develop a model to describe that when the arrangement of objects interacting at a distance changes, different amounts of potential energy are stored in the system.
- 6-MS-PS4 Waves and Their Applications in Technologies for Information Transfer
- 6-MS-PS4-1 Use mathematical representations to describe a simple model for waves that includes how the amplitude of a wave is related to the energy in a wave and how the frequency and wavelength change the expression of the wave.
- 6-MS-PS4-2 Develop and use a model to describe that waves are refracted, reflected, absorbed, transmitted, or scattered through various materials.
ESS Earth and Space Sciences
- 6-MS-ESS1 Earth’s Place in the Universe
- 6-MS-ESS1-1 Develop and use a model of the Earth-sun-moon system to describe the reoccurring patterns of lunar phases, eclipses of the sun and moon, and seasons.
- 6-MS-ESS1-2 Use a model to describe the role of gravity in the motions within galaxies and the solar system.
- 6-MS-ESS1-3 Analyze and interpret data to determine scale properties of objects in the solar system.
- 6-MS-ESS3 Earth and Human Activity
- 6-MS-ESS3-4 Construct an argument supported by evidence for how increases in human population and per-capita consumption of natural resources impact Earth’s systems.
LS Life Sciences
- 6-MS-LS1 From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes
- 6-MS-LS1-1 Conduct an investigation to provide evidence that living things are made of cells, either one or many different numbers and types.
- 6-MS-LS1-2 Develop and use a model to describe the function of a cell as a whole and ways parts of cells contribute to the function.
- 6-MS-LS2 Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics
- 6-MS-LS2-1 Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence for the effects of resource availability on organisms and populations of organisms in an ecosystem.
- 6-MS-LS2-2 Construct an explanation that predicts patterns of interactions among organisms across multiple ecosystems.
- 6-MS-LS2-3 Develop a model to describe the cycling of matter and flow of energy among living and nonliving parts of an ecosystem.
