2-ESS1-1 Earth's Place in the Universe

2-ESS1-1   Earth's Place in the Universe

Students who demonstrate understanding can:

2-ESS1-1. Use information from several sources to provide evidence that Earth events can occur quickly or slowly. [Clarification Statement: Examples of events and timescales could include volcanic explosions and earthquakes, which happen quickly and erosion of rocks, which occurs slowly.] [Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include quantitative measurements of timescales.]
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

ESS1.C: The History of Planet Earth

Crosscutting Concepts

Stability and Change

Connections to other DCIs in second grade: N/A

Articulation of DCIs across grade-levels:

3.LS2.C ; 4.ESS1.C ; 4.ESS2.A

Common Core State Standards Connections:

ELA/Literacy —
RI.2.1 Ask and answer such questions as who, what, where, when, why, and how to demonstrate understanding of key details in a text. (2-ESS1-1)
RI.2.3 Describe the connection between a series of historical events, scientific ideas or concepts, or steps in technical procedures in a text. (2-ESS1-1)
W.2.6 With guidance and support from adults, use a variety of digital tools to produce and publish writing, including in collaboration with peers. (2-ESS1-1)
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-ESS1-1)
W.2.8 Recall information from experiences or gather information from provided sources to answer a question. (2-ESS1-1)
SL.2.2 Recount or describe key ideas or details from a text read aloud or information presented orally or through other media. (2-ESS1-1)
Mathematics —
MP.2Reason abstractly and quantitatively. (2-ESS1-1)
MP.4Model with mathematics. (2-ESS1-1)
2.NBT.A Understand place value. (2-ESS1-1)
