At this grade level, students will develop culminating experiences in the general sciences in preparation for content specialization during subsequent grades. Emphasis will be placed on student-oriented activities employing the components of scientific and engineering practices. Students will explore the characteristics of their world, from the Earth’s placement in the solar system to the interactions of water, energy, air, and ecosystems on the Earth. As students more closely examine the use of resources, they also consider how their actions and choices affect future habitability on Earth.
