1-ESS1-2: Seasonal Sunlight
Make observations at different times of year to relate the amount of daylight to the time of year. (Patterns)
Clarification Statement: Emphasis is on relative comparisons of the amount of daylight in the winter to the amount in the spring or fall.
Assessment Boundary: Assessment is limited to relative amounts of daylight, not quantifying the hours or time of daylight.
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.
