3-5-ETS1-1 Engineering Design

3-5-ETS1-1   Engineering Design

Students who demonstrate understanding can:

3-5-ETS1-1. Define a simple design problem reflecting a need or a want that includes specified criteria for success and constraints on materials, time, or cost.
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

Asking Questions and Defining Problems

Asking questions and defining problems in 3–5 builds on grades K–2 experiences and progresses to specifying qualitative relationships.

Disciplinary Core Ideas

ETS1.A: Defining and Delimiting Engineering Problems

Crosscutting Concepts

Influence of Science, Engineering, and Technology on Society and the Natural World

Connections to 3-5-ETS1.A: Defining and Delimiting Engineering Problems include:

Fourth Grade: 4-PS3-4

Articulation of DCIs across grade-levels:

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

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-ETS1-1)
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-ETS1-1)
W.5.9 Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research. (3-5-ETS1-1)
Mathematics -
MP.2 Reason abstractly and quantitatively. (3-5-ETS1-1)
MP.4 Model with mathematics. (3-5-ETS1-1)
MP.5 Use appropriate tools strategically. (3-5-ETS1-1)
3-5.OA Operations and Algebraic Thinking (3-ETS1-1)
