1: History of Earth

ES-ESS2-1: Develop a model to illustrate how Earth’s internal and surface processes operate at different spatial and temporal scales to form continental and ocean-floor features.

 Plate Tectonics

2: Earth’s Systems

ES-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 systems.

 Carbon Cycle

ES-ESS2-3: Develop a model based on evidence of Earth’s interior to describe the cycling of matter by thermal convection.

 Conduction and Convection
 Plate Tectonics

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

 Water Cycle

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

 Carbon Cycle
 Cell Energy Cycle

3: Human Sustainability

ES-ESS3-3: Create a computational simulation to illustrate the relationships among the 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

ES-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

ES3-ETS1-2: Design a solution to a complex real-world problem by breaking it down into smaller, more manageable problems that can be solved through engineering.


4: Weather and Climate

ES-ESS2-4: Use a model to describe how variations in the flow of energy into and out of Earth’s systems result in changes in climate.

 Greenhouse Effect

ES-ESS3-5: Analyze geoscience data and the results from global climate models to make an evidence-based forecast of the current rate of global or regional climate change and associated future impacts to Earth’s systems.

 Greenhouse Effect
