Scientific and Engineering Practices (Skills) Crosscutting Concepts
  • Asking questions (for science) and defining problems (for engineering)
  • Developing and using models
  • Planning and carrying out investigations
  • Analyzing and interpreting data
  • Using mathematics and computational thinking
  • Constructing explanations (for science) and designing solutions (for engineering)
  • Engaging in argument from evidence
  • Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information
  • Patterns: organizing, classifying, and sorting objects by properties and dimensions
  • Cause and effect: the interaction of physical elements on living organisms and Earth processes
  • Scale, proportion and quantity: measuring using standard and non-standard units; using scale models
  • Systems and system models: replicating diagrams; understanding life and Earth cycles
  • Energy and matter: defining the properties of matter; sunlight and plant life
  • Structure and function: comparing living and non-living objects; defining structure and function of living things
  • Stability and change: determining if proposed solutions solve a problem
