SCI.CC2.K-2 Students learn that events have causes that generate observable patterns. They design simple tests to gather evidence to support or refute their own ideas about causes. 

SCI.CC2.3-5 Students routinely identify and test causal relationships and use these relationships to explain change. They understand events that occur together with regularity may or may not signify a cause and effect relationship. 

SCI.CC3.3-5 Students recognize natural objects and observable phenomena exist from the very small to the immensely large. They use standard units to measure and describe physical quantities such as mass, time, temperature, and volume. 

SCI.CC5.3-5 Students understand matter is made of particles and energy can be transferred in various ways and between objects. Students observe the conservation of matter by tracking matter flows and cycles before and after processes, recognizing the total mass of substances does not change.  

SCI.SEP6.A.K-2 Students use evidence and ideas in constructing evidence-based accounts of natural phenomena. Use information from observations (firsthand and from media) to construct an evidence-based account for natural phenomena. 

SCI.SEP6.A.3-5 Students use evidence to construct explanations that specify variables which describe and predict phenomena. This includes the following: Construct an explanation of observed relationships. Use evidence to construct or support an explanation. Identify the evidence that supports particular points in an explanation.  

SCI.PS2.B.3 Some forces act through contact, some forces (e.g. magnetic, electrostatic) act even when the objects are not in contact.  

SCI.PS2.B.5 The gravitational force of Earth acting on an object near Earth’s surface pulls that object toward the planet’s center. 

Standards met for Paper Strength class:

SCI.ETS1-2. Plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved. 

SCI.ETS2.A.K-2 Science and engineering involve the use of tools to observe and measure things.

SCI.ETS2.A.3-5 Science and technology support each other. Tools and instruments are used to answer scientific questions, while scientific discoveries lead to the development of new technologies. 

SCI.ETS2.B.K-2 Every human-made product is designed by applying some knowledge of the natural world and is built by using natural materials. Taking natural materials to make things impacts the environment.
