Science Level 02 Capacity Matrices

Physical Science

Measurement Topic: SC.02.211 Changes in speed or direction of motion are caused by forces such as pushes and pulls Capacity Matrix SC.02.211

SC.02.211.01.03 Identify and predict how the direction or speed of an object may change due to an outside force(CS: 2.1.1.a)

SC.02.211.02.03 Analyze and interpret observable data about the impact of forces on the motion of objects CAS: 2.1.1.b)

Life Science

Measurement Topic: SC.02.221 Organisms depend on their habitat's nonliving parts to satisfy their needs Capacity Matrix SC.02.221

SC.02.221.01.03 Use evidence to develop a scientific explanation about how organisms depend on their habitat. (CAS: 2.2.1.a)

SC.02.221.02.03 Analyze and interpret data about nonliving components of a habitat (CAS: 2.2.1.b)

SC.02.221.03.03 Assess and provide feedback on other scientific explanations regarding why an organism can survive in its habitat (CAS: 2.2.1.c)

SC.02.221.04.03 Use instruments to make observations about habitat components - for example, data can be collected from a fish tank to assess the environmental health (dissolved oxygen, pH, Nitrogen content). (CAS: 2.2.1.d)

Measurement Topic: SC.02.222 Each plant or animal has different structures or behaviors that serve different functions Capacity Matrix SC.02.222

SC.02.222.01.03 Use evidence to develop an explanation as to why a habitat is or is not suitable for a specific organism(CAS: 2.2.2.a)

SC.02.222.02.03 Analyze and interpret data about structures or behaviors of a population that help that population survive (CAS: 2.2.2.b)

Earth Systems Science

Measurement Topic: SC.02.231 Weather and the changing seasons impact the environment and organisms such as humans, plants, and other animals Capacity Matrix SC.02.231

SC.02.231.01.03 Use evidence to develop a scientific explanation for how the weather and changing seasons impacts the organisms such as humans, plants, and other animals - and the environment (CAS: 2.3.1.a)

SC.02.231.02.03 Analyze and interpret data such as temperatures in different locations (Sun or shade) at different times and seasons as evidence of how organisms and the environment are influenced by the weather and changing seasons (CAS: 2.3.1.b)

SC.02.231.03.03 Analyze ways in which severe weather contributes to catastrophic events such as floods and forest fires (CAS: 2.3.1.c)
