WV--Next Generation Content Standards and Objectives
S.6.LS.1: construct an explanation that predicts patterns of interactions among organisms across multiple ecosystems.
S.6.LS.2: evaluate competing design solutions for maintaining biodiversity and ecosystem services.
S.6.LS.3: construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for the role of photosynthesis in the cycling of matter and flow of energy into and out of organisms.
S.6.LS.4: develop a model to describe how food is rearranged through chemical reactions forming new molecules that support growth and/or release energy as this matter moves through an organism.
WV.NGCSO.SCI.S.6.LS.5: analyze and interpret data to provide evidence for the effects of resource availability on organisms and populations of organisms in an ecosystem.
WV.NGCSO.SCI.S.6.LS.6: develop a model to describe the cycling of matter and flow of energy among living and nonliving parts of an ecosystem.
S.6.LS.7: construct an argument supported by empirical evidence that changes to physical or biological components of an ecosystem affect populations.
S.6.PS.1: use mathematical representations to describe a simple model for waves that includes how the amplitude of a wave is related to the energy in a wave.
S.6.PS.2: develop and use a model to describe that waves are reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through various materials.
S.6.ESS.1: develop and use a model of the Earth-sun-moon system to describe the cyclic patterns of lunar phases, eclipses of the sun and moon, and seasons.
S.6.ESS.2: develop and use a model to describe the role of gravity in the motions within galaxies and the solar system.
S.6.ESS.3: analyze and interpret data to determine scale properties of objects in the solar system.
WV.NGCSO.SCI.S.6.ESS.4: collect data to provide evidence for how the motions and complex interactions of air masses results in changes in weather conditions.
S.6.ESS.5: develop and use a model to describe how unequal heating and rotation of the Earth cause patterns of atmospheric and oceanic circulation that determine regional climates.
S.6.ESS.6: ask questions to clarify evidence of the factors that have caused the change in global temperatures over the past century.
WV.NGCSO.SCI.S.6.ESS.7: analyze and interpret data on natural hazards to forecast future catastrophic events and inform the development of technologies to mitigate their effects.
