HS-ESS2: Earth's Systems

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

 Carbon Cycle

HS-ESS2-4: Analyze and interpret data to explore how variations in the flow of energy into and out of Earth’s systems result in changes in atmosphere and climate.

 Greenhouse Effect

HS-ESS2-5: Plan and conduct an investigation on the properties of water and its effects on Earth materials and surface processes.

 Water Cycle

HS-ESS2-6: Develop a quantitative model to describe the cycling of carbon among the hydrosphere, atmosphere, geosphere, and biosphere.

 Carbon Cycle
 Cell Energy Cycle

HS-ESS3: Human Sustainability

HS-ESS3-3: Create a computational simulation to illustrate the relationships among management of natural resources, the sustainability of human populations, and biodiversity.

 Coral Reefs 1 - Abiotic Factors
 Coral Reefs 2 - Biotic Factors
 Pond Ecosystem
 Water Pollution

HS-ESS3-6: Use a computational representation to illustrate the relationships among Earth systems and how those relationships are being modified due to human activity.

 Coral Reefs 1 - Abiotic Factors

HS-LS2: Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics

HS-LS2-1: Use mathematical and/or computational representations to support explanations of factors that affect carrying capacity, biodiversity and populations of ecosystems at different scales.

 Food Chain
 Forest Ecosystem
 Prairie Ecosystem
 Rabbit Population by Season
 Rainfall and Bird Beaks

HS-LS2-4: Use mathematical representations to support claims for the cycling of matter and flow of energy among organisms in an ecosystem.

 Food Chain
 Forest Ecosystem

HS-LS2-6: Evaluate the claims, evidence and reasoning that the complex interactions in ecosystems maintain relatively consistent numbers and types of organisms in stable conditions, but changing conditions may result in a new ecosystem.
