3-5-ETS1-3 Engineering Design

3-5-ETS1-3   Engineering Design

Students who demonstrate understanding can:

3-5-ETS1-3. Plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.
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

Planning and Carrying Out Investigations

Planning and carrying out investigations to answer questions or test solutions to problems in 3–5 builds on K–2 experiences and progresses to include investigations that control variables and provide evidence to support explanations or design solutions.

Disciplinary Core Ideas

ETS1.B: Developing Possible Solutions

ETS1.C: Optimizing the Design Solution

Crosscutting Concepts

Connections to 3-5-ETS1.B: Developing Possible Solutions Problems include:

Fourth Grade: 4-ESS3-2

Connections to K-2-ETS1.C: Optimizing the Design Solution include:

Fourth Grade: 4-PS4-3

Articulation of DCIs across grade-levels:

K-2.ETS1.A ; K-2.ETS1.C ; MS.ETS1.B ; MS.ETS1.C

Common Core State Standards Connections:

ELA/Literacy -
W.5.7Conduct short research projects that use several sources to build knowledge through investigation of different aspects of a topic. (3-5-ETS1-3)
W.5.8Recall relevant information from experiences or gather relevant information from print and digital sources; summarize or paraphrase information in notes and finished work, and provide a list of sources. (3-5-ETS1-3)
W.5.9 Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research. (3-5-ETS1-3)
Mathematics -
MP.2 Reason abstractly and quantitatively. (3-5-ETS1-3)
MP.4 Model with mathematics. (3-5-ETS1-3)
MP.5 Use appropriate tools strategically. (3-5-ETS1-3)
