4-ESS2-2 Earth's Systems

4-ESS2-2   Earth's Systems

Students who demonstrate understanding can:

4-ESS2-2. Analyze and interpret data from maps to describe patterns of Earth’s features.  [Clarification Statement: Maps can include topographic maps of Earth’s land and ocean floor, as well as maps of the locations of mountains, continental boundaries, volcanoes, and earthquakes.]
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

Analyzing and Interpreting Data

Analyzing data in 3–5 builds on K–2 experiences and progresses to introducing quantitative approaches to collecting data and conducting multiple trials of qualitative observations. When possible and feasible, digital tools should be used.

Disciplinary Core Ideas

ESS2.B: Plate Tectonics and Large-Scale System Interactions

Crosscutting Concepts

Patterns

Connections to other DCIs in fourth grade: N/A

Articulation of DCIs across grade-levels:

2.ESS2.B ; 2.ESS2.C ; 5.ESS2.C ; MS.ESS1.C ; MS.ESS2.A ; MS.ESS2.B

Common Core State Standards Connections:

ELA/Literacy -
RI.4.7 Interpret information presented visually, orally, or quantitatively (e.g., in charts, graphs, diagrams, time lines, animations, or interactive elements on Web pages) and explain how the information contributes to an understanding of the text in which it appears. (4-ESS2-2)
W.4.7 Interpret information presented visually, orally, or quantitatively (e.g., in charts, graphs, diagrams, time lines, animations, or interactive elements on Web pages) and explain how the information contributes to an understanding of the text in which it appears. (4-ESS2-2)
Mathematics -
4.MD.A.2 Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals, and problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Represent measurement quantities using diagrams such as number line diagrams that feature a measurement scale. (4-ESS2-2)
