NGSS K2-ETS1-1 Ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.
NGSS 3-ESS2-1 Represent data in tables and graphical displays to describe typical weather conditions expected during a particular season.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.NBT.A.1 Understand that the three digits of a three digit number represent amounts of hundreds,tens, and ones; e.g., 706 equals 7 hundreds, 0 tens, and 6 ones.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.MD.C.5 Recognize angles as geometric shapes that are formed wherever two rays share a common endpoint, and understand concepts of angle measurement.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.MD.C.5.A An angle is measured with reference to a circle with its center at the common endpoint of the rays, by considering the fraction of the circular arc between the points where the two rays intersect the circle. An angle that turns through 1/360 of a circle is called a “one- degree angle,”and can be used to measure angles.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.MD.C.5.B An angle that turns through n one-degree angles is said to have an angle measure of n degrees.
