P.8.C.4: Students know energy cannot be created or destroyed, in a chemical or physical reaction, but only changed from one form to another.
P.8.C.5: Students know heat energy flows from warmer materials or regions to cooler ones through conduction, convection, and radiation.
E.8.A: Students understand the relationship between the Earth's atmosphere, topography, weather and climate.
E.8.A.1: Students know seasons are caused by variations in the amounts of the Sun’s energy reaching Earth’s surface due to the planet’s axial tilt.
E.8.A.2: Students know how the processes involved in the water cycle affect climatic patterns.
E.8.A.5: Students know the difference between local weather and regional climate.
E.8.A.6: Students know topography and patterns of global and local atmospheric movement influence local weather which occurs primarily in the lower atmosphere.

E.8.B.4: Students know Earth is part of a solar system located within the Milky Way Galaxy.
E.8.B.7: Students know regular and predictable motions of Earth around the Sun and the Moon around the Earth explain such phenomena as the day, the year, phases of the Moon, and eclipses.
E.8.C: Students understand that landforms result from a combination of constructive and destructive processes.
E.8.C.2: Students know rocks at Earth’s surface weather, forming sediments that are buried, then compacted, heated and often recrystallized into new rock.
E.8.C.3: Students know Earth is composed of a crust (both continental and oceanic); hot convecting mantle; and dense, a metallic core.
E.8.C.4: Students know the very slow movement of large crustal plates result in geological events.
E.8.C.5: Students know how geologic processes account for state and regional topography.
E.8.C.7: Students know the characteristics, abundances, and location of renewable and nonrenewable resources found in Nevada.
E.8.C.8: Students know soils have properties, such as color, texture, and water retention, and provide nutrients for life according to how they form.
L.8.A: Students understand the role of genetic information in the continuation of a species.
L.8.A.1: Students know heredity is the passage of genetic instructions from one generation to the next generation.
