HS-ESS: Earth and Space Science

HS-ESS1-1: 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.

 H-R Diagram

HS-ESS1-4: Use mathematical or computational representations to predict the motion of orbiting objects in the solar system.

 Orbital Motion - Kepler's Laws
 Solar System Explorer

HS-ESS1-5: Evaluate evidence of the past and current movements of continental and oceanic crust and the theory of plate tectonics to explain the ages of crustal rocks.

 Plate Tectonics

HS-ESS2-2: Develop a model based on evidence of Earth’s interior to describe the cycling of matter by thermal convection.

 Conduction and Convection
 Plate Tectonics

HS-ESS.C: The development of technologies has provided the astronomical data that provide the empirical evidence for the Big Bang Theory.

 Greenhouse Effect

HS-ESS2-4: Plan and carry out an investigation of the properties of water and its effects on Earth materials and surface processes.

 Water Cycle

HS-ESS3-1: Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the availability of natural resources, occurrence of natural hazards, and changes in climate have influenced human activity.

 Hurricane Motion

HS-ESS3-3: Create a computational simulation to illustrate the relationships among management of natural resources, the sustainability of human populations, and biodiversity.

HS-ESS3-5: Analyze geoscience data and the results from global climate models to make an evidence-based forecast of the current rate of global or regional climate change and associated future impacts to Earth systems.

 Greenhouse Effect

HS-ESS3-6: Use a computational representation to illustrate the relationships among Earth systems and how those relationships are being modified due to human activity.
