Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

Standards: Science

The science standards include both NGSS and Michigan Science Standards.
MS-ESS3-5 (1)
Education Level MS

Ask questions to clarify evidence of the factors that have caused the rise in global temperatures over the past century.

MS-ETS1 (3)
Education Level MS

Engineering Design

MS-ETS1-1 (2)
Education Level MS

Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution taking into account relevant scientific principles and potential impacts on people and the natural environment that may limit possible solutions.

MS-ETS1-2 (1)
Education Level MS

Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.

MS-ETS1-3 (1)
Education Level MS

Analyze data from tests to determine similarities and differences among several design solutions to identify the best characteristics of each that can be combined into a new solution to better meet the criteria for success.

MS-ETS1-4 (1)
Education Level MS

Develop a model to generate data for iterative testing and modification of a proposed object tool or process such that an optimal design can be achieved.

MS-LS1 (0)
Education Level MS

From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes

MS-LS1-1 (1)
Education Level MS

Conduct an investigation to provide evidence that living things are made of cells either one cell or many different numbers and types of cells.

MS-LS1-2 (2)
Education Level MS

Develop and use a model to describe the function of a cell as a whole and ways parts of cells contribute to the function.

MS-LS1-3 (1)
Education Level MS

Use argument supported by evidence for how the body is a system of interacting subsystems composed of groups of cells.

MS-LS1-4 (0)
Education Level MS

Use argument based on empirical evidence and scientific reasoning to support an explanation for how characteristic animal behaviors and specialized plant structures affect the probability of successful reproduction of animals and plants respectively.

MS-LS1-5 (0)
Education Level MS

Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for how environmental and genetic factors influence the growth of organisms.

MS-LS1-6 (0)
Education Level MS

Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for the role of photosynthesis in the cycling of matter and flow of energy into and out of organisms.

MS-LS1-7 (0)
Education Level MS

Develop a model to describe how food is rearranged through chemical reactions forming new molecules that support growth and/or release energy as this matter moves through an organism.

MS-LS1-8 (0)
Education Level MS

Gather and synthesize information that sensory receptors respond to stimuli by sending messages to the brain for immediate behavior or storage as memories.
