This resource is for 2nd grade and is aligned with NGSS Earth Systems:
NGSS 2-ESS2-3. Obtain information to identify where water is found on Earth and that it can be solid or liquid.
It also aligns with 2nd grade Utah SEEd 2.1.3 Develop and use models illustrating the patterns of landforms and water on Earth. The model could depict water in the solid or liquid state. Examples could include a mountain with a glacier, a stream feeding into a lake, a bay environment, or an ocean surrounding a continent. (This resource really focuses on where water is and it what form. I have another resource that is more focused on landforms)
