Explain systems by outlining a system’s relevant parts and its purpose and/or designing a model that illustrates its function.
Describe the use of models as an application of scientific or technological concepts.

Given a model showing simple cause-and-effect relationships in a natural system, predict results that can be used to test the assumptions in the model (e.g., photosynthesis, water cycle, diffusion, infiltration).
Describe how scientists use models to explore relationships in natural systems (e.g., an ecosystem, river system, the solar system).
Describe how scientists use models to explore relationships and make predictions about natural systems (e.g., weather conditions, the solar system).
Show how models are used to communicate and test design ideas and processes.
Develop descriptions, explanations, predictions, and models using evidence.
