# Georgia Standards Of Excellence – Elementary

The standards listed may be touched upon as part of a discussion, activity, or description of an artifact. In addition to the GSE listed below, the museum is a great place to spark ideas!

**Language Arts**

Visiting students can use the STEAM Timeline to start biographic research. They can use the exhibits for information and inspiration to write about their experiences here or aspirations that are fueled here.

**Mathematics**

There are many real life examples of exponents, ciphers, number systems (Base 2, Base 10, or Base 16), and measurements of extreme speed or distance to answer that age old question “When am I going to use this?”

**Science**

Supercomputing aids the imaging, calculation, and simulation building to help show and understand biological, chemical, meteorological, astronomical, physical, and engineering processes.

**Social Studies**

Where would we be? Look at the impact of the Space Race on US society and relations with Russia. What is in your house today that was originally invented to be used by astronauts? How did we work before the internet?

**Visual Arts**

Don’t forget the A in STEAM! Art and design abound within the exhibits – product design, pop art, portraits, graphic design. Students can use artifacts such as the BYTE magazine hand drawn covers, infographics on computer speeds, or the animated Apollo video to reflect on topics such as graphic design, portraiture, videography, animation, and marketing.

**3rd Grade – Language Arts**

ELAGSE3RI1 – Ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of a text, referring explicitly to the text as the basis for the answers.

ELAGSE3RI2 – Determine the main idea of a text; recount the key details and explain how they support the main idea.

ELAGSE3RI3 – Describe the relationship between a series of historical events, scientific ideas or concepts, or steps in technical procedures in a text, using language that pertains to time, sequence, and cause/effect.

ELAGSE3RI7 – Use information gained from illustrations (e.g., maps, photographs) and the words in a text to demonstrate understanding of the text (e.g., where, when, why, and how key events occur).

**3rd Grade – Computer Science**

CSS.EL.3-5.1 – Identify the features of current technologies and use that knowledge to understand emerging technologies.

CSS.DC.3-5.3 – Identify the rights, responsibilities, and opportunities of living, learning, and working in an interconnected society and model behaviors that are safe, legal, and ethical.

CSS.IDC.3-5.4 – Use a variety of technologies within a design process to identify and solve problems by creating new, useful, or imaginative solutions.

CSS.CT.3-5.5 – Develop and employ strategies for understanding and solving problems in ways that use the power of technological methods to develop and test solutions.

**4th Grade – Mathematics**

MGSE4.MD.1 – Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz.; l, ml; hr, min, sec. b. Express larger units in terms of smaller units within the same measurement system.

MGSE4.MD.3 – Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems. For example, find the width of a rectangular room given the area of the flooring and the length, by viewing the area formula as a multiplication equation with an unknown factor.

MGSE4.MD.8 – Recognize area as additive. Find areas of rectilinear figures by decomposing them into non-overlapping rectangles and adding the areas of the non-overlapping parts, applying this technique to solve real world problems.

MGSE4.G.3 – Recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts. Identify line-symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry.

**4th Grade – Language Arts**

ELAGSE4RI1 – Refer to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.

ELAGSE4RI2 – Determine the main idea of a text and explain how it is supported by key details; summarize the text.

ELAGSE4RI3 – Explain events, procedures, ideas, or concepts in a historical, scientific, or technical text, including what happened and why, based on specific information in the text.

ELAGSE4RI6 – Compare and contrast a firsthand and secondhand account of the same event or topic; describe the differences in focus and the information provided.

ELAGSE4RI7 – Interpret information presented visually, orally, or quantitatively (e.g., in charts, graphs, diagrams, time lines, animations, or interactive elements on Web pages) and explain how the information contributes to an understanding of the text in which it appears.

**4th Grade – Computer Science**

CSS.EL.3-5.1 – Identify the features of current technologies and use that knowledge to understand emerging technologies.

CSS.DC.3-5.3 – Identify the rights, responsibilities, and opportunities of living, learning, and working in an interconnected society and model behaviors that are safe, legal, and ethical.

CSS.IDC.3-5.4 – Use a variety of technologies within a design process to identify and solve problems by creating new, useful, or imaginative solutions.

CSS.CT.3-5.5 – Develop and employ strategies for understanding and solving problems in ways that use the power of technological methods to develop and test solutions.

CSS.DA.3-5.9 – Understand the relationship between technology, lifelong learning, and the appropriate use of information.

**5th Grade Mathematics**

MGSE5.NBT.1 – Recognize that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its right and 1/10 of what it represents in the place to its left.

MGSE5.NBT.2 – Explain patterns in the number of zeros of the product when multiplying a number by powers of 10, and explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is multiplied or divided by a power of 10. Use whole-number exponents to denote powers of 10.

MGSE5.MD.1 – Convert among different-sized standard measurement units (mass, weight, length, time, etc.) within a given measurement system (customary and metric) (e.g., convert 5cm to 0.05m), and use these conversions in solving multi-step, real world problems.

MGSE5.MD.5 – Relate volume to the operations of multiplication and addition and solve real world and mathematical problems involving volume.

MGSE5.G.1 – Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system, with the intersection of the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates. Understand that the first number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second number indicates how far to travel in the direction of the second axis, with the convention that the names of the two axes and the coordinates correspond (e.g., x-axis and x-coordinate, y-axis and y-coordinate).

**5th Grade – Language Arts**

ELAGSE5RI1 – Quote accurately from a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.

ELAGSE5RI2 – Determine two or more main ideas of a text and explain how they are supported by key details; summarize the text.

ELAGSE5RI7 – Draw on information from multiple print or digital sources, demonstrating the ability to locate an answer to a question quickly or to solve a problem efficiently.

ELAGSE5W8 – Recall relevant information from experiences or gather relevant information from print and digital sources; summarize or paraphrase information in notes and finished work, and provide a list of sources.
