South Carolina Standards & Learning

3.E.4. The student will demonstrate an understanding of the composition of Earth and the processes that shape features of Earth’s surface.
3.E.4A. Conceptual Understanding: Earth is made of materials (including rocks, minerals, soil, and water) that have distinct properties. These materials provide resources for human activities.
Students who demonstrate this understanding can:
3.E.4A.2. Develop and use models to describe and classify the pattern distribution of land and water features on Earth.
3.E.4B. Conceptual Understanding: Earth’s surface has changed over time by natural processes and by human activities. Humans can take steps to reduce the impact of these changes.
Students who demonstrate this understanding can:
3.E.4B.1. Develop and use models to describe the characteristics of Earth’s continental landforms and classify landforms as volcanoes, mountains, valleys, canyons, plains, and islands.
3.E.4B.2. Plan and conduct scientific investigations to determine how natural processes (including weathering, erosion, and gravity) shape Earth’s surface.
3.E.4B.3. Obtain and communicate information to explain how natural events (such as fires, landslides, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, or floods) and human activities (such as farming, mining, or building) impact the environment.
