8.MS-ESS1-1b: Develop and use a model of the Earth-Sun system to explain the cyclical pattern of seasons, which includes the Earth’s tilt and differential intensity of sunlight on different areas of Earth across the year.
8.MS-ESS1-2: Explain the role of gravity in ocean tides, the orbital motions of planets, their moons, and asteroids in the solar system.
8.MS-ESS2-5: Interpret basic weather data to identify patterns in air mass interactions and the relationship of those patterns to local weather.
8.MS-ESS2-6: Describe how interactions involving the ocean affect weather and climate on a regional scale, including the influence of the ocean temperature as mediated by energy input from the Sun and energy loss due to evaporation or redistribution via ocean currents.
8.MS-LS1-5: Construct an argument based on evidence for how environmental and genetic factors influence the growth of organisms.
8.MS-LS4-4: Use a model to describe the process of natural selection, in which genetic variations of some traits in a population increase some individuals’ likelihood of surviving and reproducing in a changing environment. Provide evidence that natural selection occurs over many generations.
8.MS-PS1-2: Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred.
8.MS-PS1-4: Develop a model that describes and predicts changes in particle motion, relative spatial arrangement, temperature, and state of a pure substance when thermal energy is added or removed.
8.MS-PS1-5: Use a model to explain that atoms are rearranged during a chemical reaction to form new substances with new properties. Explain that the atoms present in the reactants are all present in the products and thus the total number of atoms is conserved.
8.MS-PS2-1: Develop a model that demonstrates Newton’s third law involving the motion of two colliding objects.
8.MS-PS2-2: Provide evidence that the change in an object’s speed depends on the sum of the forces on the object (the net force) and the mass of the object.
8.MS-ETS2-4(MA): Use informational text to illustrate that materials maintain their composition under various kinds of physical processing; however, some material properties may change if a process changes the particulate structure of a material.
