HS-ESS1: Earth’s Place in the Universe

HS-ESS1-4: Use Kepler’s Laws to predict the motion of orbiting objects in the solar system. Describe how orbits may change due to the gravitational effects from, or collisions with, other objects in the solar system.

 Orbital Motion - Kepler's Laws

HS-ESS1-5: Evaluate evidence of the past and current movements of continental and oceanic crust, the theory of plate tectonics, and relative densities of oceanic and continental rocks to explain why continental rocks are generally much older than rocks of the ocean floor.

 Plate Tectonics

HS-ESS2: Earth’s Systems

HS-ESS2-2: Analyze geoscience data to make the claim that one change to Earth’s hydrosphere can create feedbacks that cause changes to other Earth systems.

 Carbon Cycle

HS-ESS2-6: Use a model to describe cycling of carbon through the ocean, atmosphere, soil, and biosphere and how increases in carbon dioxide concentrations due to human activity has resulted in atmospheric and climate changes.

 Carbon Cycle
 Cell Energy Cycle

HS-ESS3: Earth and Human Activity

HS-ESS3-5: Analyze results from global climate models to describe how forecasts are made of the current rate of global or regional climate change and associated future impacts to Earth systems.

 Greenhouse Effect
