North Carolina Essential Standards Correlations for "Solar System Odyssey"


GRADE 3
Science Correlations
3.E.1.1 Earth in the Universe Recognize that the earth is part of a system called the solar system that includes the sun (a star), planets and many moons and the earth is the third planet from the sun.
3.P.2.2 Matter: Properties and Change Compare solids, liquids, and gasses based on their basic properties.
3.P.2.3 Matter: Properties and Change Summarize changes that occur to the observable properties of materials when different degrees of heat are applied to them.
3.P.3.1 Energy: Conservation and Transfer Recognize that energy can be transferred from a warmer object to another by rubbing them together.
3.P.3.2 Energy: Conservation and Transfer Recognize that energy can be transferred from a warmer object to a cooler one by contact or at a distance and the cooler object gets warmer.
Information and Technology Correlations
3.SI.1.1 Sources of Information Classify various types of resources as appropriate or inappropriate for purposes.
3.SI.1.2 Sources of Information Classify resources as reliable or not reliable.
3.TT.1.1 Technology as a Tool Use a variety of technology tools to gather data and information.
GRADE 6
Science Correlations
6.P.3.1 Energy: Conservation and Transfer Illustrate the transfer of heat energy from warmer objects to cooler ones using examples of conduction, radiation and convection and the effects that may result.
6.E.1.2 Earth in the Universe Explain why Earth sustains life while other planets do not based on their properties (including types of surface, atmosphere and gravitational force) and location to the Sun.
6.E.1.3 Earth in the Universe Summarize space exploration and understandings gained from them.
Information and Technology Correlations
6.SI.1.1 Sources of Information Analyze resources in terms of their reliability (which can be determined by currency, credibility, or authority depending on the topic or purpose).
6.TT.1.1 Technology as a Tool Select appropriate technology tools to gather data and information.
