CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.2.1 Write opinion pieces in which they introduce the topic or book they are writing about, state an opinion, supply reasons that support the opinion, use linking words (e.g.,because, and, also) to connect opinion and reasons, and provide a concluding statement or section.
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.2.5 With guidance and support from adults and peers, focus on a topic and strengthen writing as needed by revising and editing.
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.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).
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.2.8 Recall information from experiences or gather information from provided sources to answer a question.
|K-2-ETS1-1 Ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool||ETS1.A Defining and Delimiting Engineering Problems
A situation that people want to change or create can be approached as a problem to be solved through engineering.Asking questions, making observations, and gathering information are helpful in thinking about problems.Before beginning to design a solution, it is important to clearly understand the problem.
|K-2-ETS1-2 Develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps its function as needed to solve a given problem||ETS1.B Developing Possible Solutions
Design can be conveyed through sketches, drawing, or physical models. These presentations are useful in communicating ideas for a problem’s solutions to other people.
|K-2-ETS1-3 Develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem.||ETS1.C Optimizing the Design Solutions
Because there is always more than one possible solution to a problem, it is useful to compare and test designs.
