Grade: 1 - Engineering 3

1.E.3
Analyze data from the investigation of two objects constructed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how each performs.

I Can Statements Academic Vocabulary
I can compare the strengths and weaknesses of two objects constructed to solve the same problem.

I can analyze data from an investigation focused on two objects constructed to solve the same problem.

Compare

Cross Cutting Concepts
Structure and Function:
*The way an object is shaped or structured determines many of its properties and functions.

Cause and Effect:
*Events have causes, sometimes simple, sometimes multifaceted. Deciphering causal relationships, and the mechanisms by which they are mediated, is a major activity of science and engineering.

Scale, Proportion, and Quantity
*Relative scales allow objects and events to be compared and described (e.g., bigger and smaller; hotter and colder; faster and slower).

Looking Back Looking Ahead
Identify a problem or need and create a plan to solve. (F.SC4.1) Construct and perform fair investigations in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved. (3-5.E.3)
