NGSS 4 Earth's Systems 4-ESS2-2 Processes That Shape the Earth Analyze and interpret data from maps to describe patterns of Earth's features.
NGSS 4 Earth's Systems 4-ESS3-1 Energy Obtain and combine information to describe that energy and fuels are derived from natural resources and their uses affect the environment.
NGSS 4 Earth's Systems 4-ESS3-2 Processes That Shape the Earth Generate and compare multiple solutions to reduce the impacts of natural Earth processes on humans.
NGSS 5 Earth's Systems 5-ESS2-1 Earth's Systems Develop a model using an example to describe ways the geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and/or atmosphere interact.
NGSS 5 Earth's Systems 5-ESS2-2 Earth's Systems Describe and graph the amounts and percentages of water and fresh water in various reservoirs to provide evidence about the distribution of water on Earth.
NGSS 5 Earth's Systems 5-ESS3-1 Earth's Systems Obtain and combine information about ways individual communities use science ideas to protect the Earth's resources and environment.
NGSS 5 Physical Science PS1.A Matter and its Interactions Matter of any type can be subdivided into particles that are too small to see, but even then the matter still exists and can be detected by other means.
CCSS - ELA 6 RI.6.1 -- Cite textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.
CCSS - ELA 6 RI.6.3 -- Analyze in detail how a key individual, event, or idea is introduced, illustrated, and elaborated in a text (e.g., through examples or anecdotes).
CCSS - ELA 6 RI.6.4 -- Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative, connotative, and technical meanings.
CCSS - ELA 6 RI.6.7 -- Integrate information presented in different media or formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively) as well as in words to develop a coherent understanding of a topic or issue.
NGSS 6 MS-ESS3-3 Human Impacts Apply scientific principles to design a method for monitoring and minimizing a human impact on the environment.
NGSS 6 Earth's Systems MS-ESS2-4 Earth's Systems Develop a model to describe the cycling of water through Earth's systems driven by energy from the sun and the force of gravity.
NGSS 6-8 Physical Science PS1.A Matter and its Interactions Substances are made from different types of atoms, which combine with one another in various ways. Atoms form molecules that range in size from two to thousands of atoms.
