Title: K–2-ETS1 Engineering, Technology, and Applications of Science

Performance Expectation: 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.

Disciplinary Core Idea(s):
ETS1.B: Developing Possible Solutions Designs can be conveyed through sketches, drawings, or physical models. These representations are useful in communicating ideas for a problem’s solutions to other people.

Science & Engineering Practices: Developing and Using Models Develop a simple model based on evidence to represent a proposed object or tool.

Crosscutting Concepts: Structure and Function The shape and stability of structures of natural and designed objects are related to their function(s).

California Environmental Principles and Concepts:
Principle V Decisions affecting resources and natural systems are based on a wide range of considerations and decision-making processes.

California Common Core State Standards Connections:
ELA/Literacy SL.2.5: Create audio recordings of stories or poems; add drawings or other visual displays to stories or recounts of experiences when appropriate to clarify ideas, thoughts, and feelings.

DCI Connections:
