ES.1.2: Differentiate between the different types of stars found on the Hertzsprung-Russell Diagram. Compare and contrast the evolution of stars of different masses. Understand and discuss the basics of the fusion processes that are the source of energy of stars.
ES.1.3: Compare and contrast the differences in size, temperature, and age between our sun and other stars.
ES.1.7: Describe the characteristics and motions of the various kinds of objects in our solar system, including planets, satellites, comets, and asteroids. Explain that Kepler's laws determine the orbits of the planets.
ES.1.12: Describe the role of photosynthetic plants in changing Earth's atmosphere.
ES.1.16: Investigate the causes of severe weather, and propose appropriate safety measures that can be taken in the event of severe weather.
ES.1.18: Demonstrate the possible effects of atmospheric changes brought on by things such as acid rain, smoke, volcanic dust, greenhouse gases, and ozone depletion.
ES.1.19: Identify and discuss the effects of gravity on the waters of Earth. Include both the flow of streams and the movement of tides.
ES.1.23: Explain motions, transformations, and locations of materials in Earth's lithosphere and interior. For example, describe the movement of the plates that make up the crust of the earth and the resulting formation of earthquakes, volcanoes, trenches, and mountains.
ES.1.24: Understand and discuss continental drift, sea-floor spreading, and plate tectonics. Include evidence that supports the movement of the plates, such as magnetic stripes on the ocean floor, fossil evidence on separate continents, and the continuity of geological features.
