ESS.1.2: The surface of Earth changes due to weathering.
ESS.1.2.a: Rocks change shape, size and/or form due to water or ice movement, freeze and thaw, wind, plant growth, gases in the air, pollution and catastrophic events such as earthquakes, mass wasting, flooding and volcanic activity.
ESS.1.3: The surface of Earth changes due to erosion and deposition.
ESS.1.3.a: Water, wind and ice physically remove and carry (erosion) rock, soil and sediment and deposit the material in a new location.
LS.1.1: Changes in an organism?s environment are sometimes beneficial to its survival and sometimes harmful.
LS.1.1.a: Ecosystems can change gradually or dramatically. When the environment changes, some plants and animals survive and reproduce and others die or move to new locations. An animal?s patterns of behavior are related to the environment. This includes the kinds and numbers of other organisms present, the availability of food and resources, and the physical attributes of the environment.
PS.1.2: Energy can be transformed from one form to another or can be transferred from one location to another.
PS.1.2.a: Energy transfers from hot objects to cold objects as heat, resulting in a temperature change.
PS.1.2.b: Electric circuits require a complete loop of conducting materials through which an electrical energy can be transferred.
PS.1.2.c: Electrical energy in circuits can be transformed to other forms of energy, including light, heat, sound and motion.
