6-8-ESS1-1: Develop and use a model of the Earth-sun-moon system to explain the cyclic patterns of lunar phases and eclipses of the sun and moon.
6-8-ESS1-2: Develop and use a model of the Earth-sun system to explain the cyclical pattern of seasons, which includes the Earth's tilt and directional angle of sunlight on different areas of Earth across the year.
6-8-ESS1-3: Develop and use a model to describe the role of gravity in the motions within galaxies and the solar system.
6-8-ESS1-4: Analyze and interpret data to determine scale properties of objects in the solar system.
6-8-ESS2-2: Construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience processes have changed Earth’s surface at varying time and spatial scales.
6-8-ESS2-3: Analyze and interpret data on the distribution of fossils and rocks, continental shapes, and seafloor structures to provide evidence of the past plate motions.
6-8-ESS2-4: Design and develop a model to describe the cycling of water through Earth's systems driven by energy from the sun and the force of gravity.
6-8-ESS2-5: Research, collect, and analyze data to provide evidence for how the motions and complex interactions of air masses results in changes in weather conditions.
6-8-ESS3-1: Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for how the uneven distributions of Earth’s mineral, energy, and groundwater resources are the result of past and current geoscience processes and human activity.
6-8-ESS3-5: Analyze evidence of the factors that have caused the change in global temperatures over the past century.
