ES.ESS1: Earth’s Place in the Universe
ES.ESS1.1: Develop a model based on evidence to illustrate the life span of the sun and the role of nuclear fusion in the sun’s core to convert matter to energy that eventually reaches Earth in the form of radiation.
ES.ESS1.2: Construct an explanation of how the universe formed as a single point and continues to expand based on astronomical evidence of light spectra, motion of distant galaxies, and the composition of matter in the universe.
Big Bang Theory - Hubble's Law
ES.ESS1.3: Construct an explanation about the process that causes stars to produce elements throughout their life cycle.
ES.ESS1.4: Use mathematical or computational representations to determine patterns that can be used to predict the motion of orbiting objects in the solar system.
Orbital Motion - Kepler's Laws
Solar System Explorer
ES.ESS2: Earth Systems
ES.ESS2.1: Develop a model to illustrate how Earth’s internal and surface processes operate at different scales of space and time to form continental and ocean-floor features.
ES.ESS2.2: Analyze geoscience data to make the claim that one change to Earth’s surface can create feedbacks and interactions that cause changes to other Earth’s systems.
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
ES.ESS2.4: Analyze and interpret data to explore how variations in the flow of energy into and out of Earth’s systems causes changes to the atmosphere and climate.
Greenhouse Effect - Metric
ES.ESS2.5: Plan and conduct investigations of how the structure and resulting properties of water interact with the Earth’s materials and surface processes.
ES.ESS2.6: Develop a quantitative model to describe the cycling of carbon among the hydrosphere, atmosphere, geosphere, and biosphere.
