HS.ESS.1: Earth?s Place in the Universe
HS.ESS.1.1: Develop a model based on evidence to illustrate the life span of the sun and the role of nuclear fusion in the sun?s core to release energy that eventually reaches Earth in the form of radiation.
HS.ESS.1.2: Develop models to describe the sun?s place in relation to the Milky Way galaxy and the distribution of galaxies and galaxy clusters in the Universe.
HS.ESS.1.3: Communicate scientific ideas about the way stars, over their life cycle, produce elements.
HS.ESS.1.4: Use mathematical or computational representations to predict the motion of orbiting objects in the solar system.
HS.ESS.2: Earth?s Systems
HS.ESS.2.1: Develop a model to illustrate how Earth?s internal and surface processes operate at different spatial and temporal scales to form continental and ocean-floor features.
HS.ESS.2.2: Analyze geoscience data to make the claim that one change to Earth?s surface can create feedbacks and interactions that cause changes to other Earth?s systems.
HS.ESS.2.3: Develop a model based on evidence of Earth?s interior to describe the cycling of matter by thermal convection.
HS.ESS.2.4: Analyze and interpret data to explore how variations in the flow of energy into and out of Earth?s systems result in changes in atmosphere and climate.
HS.ESS.2.5: Plan and conduct an investigation of the properties of water and its effects on Earth materials and surface processes.
HS.ESS.2.6: Develop a quantitative model to describe the cycling of carbon among the hydrosphere, atmosphere, geosphere, and biosphere.
HS.ESS.3: Earth and Human Activities
HS.ESS.3.5: Construct a scientific explanation from evidence for how geological processes lead to uneven distribution of natural resources.
