ES.1: The student will plan and conduct investigations in which

ES.1.d: variables are manipulated with repeated trials; and

Seed Germination

ES.4: The student will investigate and understand the characteristics of the Earth and the solar system. Key concepts include

ES.4.b: sun-Earth-moon relationships (seasons, tides, and eclipses);

3D Eclipse
Seasons Around the World
Seasons in 3D
Seasons: Why do we have them?

ES.8: The student will investigate and understand geologic processes including plate tectonics. Key concepts include

ES.8.c: tectonic processes (subduction, rifting and sea floor spreading, and continental collision).

Plate Tectonics

ES.10: The student will investigate and understand that many aspects of the history and evolution of the Earth and life can be inferred by studying rocks and fossils. Key concepts include

ES.10.b: superposition, cross-cutting relationships, index fossils, and radioactive decay are methods of dating bodies of rock;


ES.11: The student will investigate and understand that oceans are complex, interactive physical, chemical, and biological systems and are subject to long- and short-term variations. Key concepts include

ES.11.d: features of the sea floor (continental margins, trenches, mid-ocean ridges, and abyssal plains) reflect tectonic processes; and

Plate Tectonics

ES.13: The student will investigate and understand that energy transfer between the sun, Earth, and the Earth's atmosphere drives weather and climate on Earth. Key concepts include

ES.13.b: prediction of weather patterns;

Hurricane Motion
Weather Maps

ES.13.c: severe weather occurrences such as tornadoes, hurricanes, and major storms; and

Hurricane Motion

ES.13.d: weather phenomena and the factors that affect climate including radiation and convection.
