Science and Engineering Practices
Ask questions that can be investigated within the scope of the classroom, outdoor environment, and museums and other public facilities with available resources and, when appropriate, frame a hypothesis based on observations and scientific principles.
Plan an investigation individually and collaboratively, and in the design: identify independent and dependent variables and controls, what tools are needed to do the gathering, how measurements will be recorded, and how many data are needed to support a claim.
Disciplinary Core Ideas
Organisms, and populations of organisms, are dependent on their environmental interactions both with other living things and with nonliving factors.
Cause and effect relationships may be used to predict phenomena in natural or designed systems.
Patterns can be used to identify cause-and-effect relationships.
