1-ESS1-1: Sun, Moon, and Star Patterns
Use observations of the sun, moon, and stars to describe patterns that can be predicted.
Clarification Statement: Examples of patterns could include that the sun and moon appear to rise in one part of the sky, move across the sky, and set; and stars other than our sun are visible at night but not during the day.
Assessment Boundary: Assessment of star patterns is limited to stars being seen at night and not during the day.
The following assessments were created by science teachers hoping to better understand the NGSS. In most cases teachers went from standard to assessment in around an hour. These are drafts and should be used accordingly. Feel free to improve these assessments or contribute to the collection. Learn more about assessment design here.
