SCI.ESS1.A. The Universe and Its Stars
SCI.ESS1.A.h. Light spectra from stars are used to determine their characteristics, processes, and lifecycles. Solar activity creates the elements through nuclear fusion. The development of technologies has provided the astronomical data that provide the empirical evidence for the Big Bang theory.
SCI.ESS1.B. Earth and the Solar System
SCI.ESS1.B.h. Kepler’s laws describe common features of the motions of orbiting objects. Observations from astronomy and space probes provide evidence for explanations of solar system formation. Cyclical changes in Earth’s tilt and orbit, occurring over tens to hundreds of thousands of years, cause cycles of ice ages and other gradual climate changes.
SCI.ESS1.C. The History of Planet Earth
SCI.ESS1.C.h. The rock record resulting from tectonic and other geoscience processes as well as objects from the solar system can provide evidence of Earth’s early history and the relative ages of major geologic formations.

SCI.ETS3.B. Science and Engineering Are Unique Ways of Thinking with Different Purposes
SCI.ETS3.B.h.1. Science is both a body of knowledge that represents current understanding of natural systems and the processes used to refine, elaborate, revise and extend this knowledge. These processes differentiate science from other ways of knowing.

SCI.CC. Crosscutting Concepts (CC)

SCI.CC7. Students use science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas, and an understanding of stability and change to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.
Stability and Change
SCI.CC7.h. Students understand much of science deals with constructing explanations of how things change and how they remain stable. They quantify and model changes in systems over very short or very long periods of time. They see some changes are irreversible, and negative feedback can stabilize a system, while positive feedback can destabilize it. They recognize systems can be designed for greater or lesser stability.
