Looking Back Looking Ahead
Make observations to determine the effect of sunlight on Earth’s surface and use tools and materials to design and build a structure to reduce the warming effect on Earth's surface. (K.ESS.1)

Describe and compare objects seen in the night and day sky, observing that the sun and moon move across the sky. (K.ESS.2)

Investigate how the moon appears to move through the sky and it changes day to day, emphasizing the importance of how the moon impacts the Earth, the rising and setting times, and solar and lunar eclipses. (4.ESS.1)
