The resources above correspond to the standards listed below:

Louisiana Standards

LA.ESS-E. Earth and Space Science: The students will develop an understanding of the properties of earth materials, the structure of the Earth system, the Earth's history, and the Earth's place in the universe.
ESS-E-A1. Properties of Earth Materials: understanding that earth materials are rocks, minerals, and soils. (1)
ESS-E-A3. Properties of Earth Materials: investigating, observing, and describing how water changes from one form to another and interacts with the atmosphere. (2, 4)
ESS-E-A4. Properties of Earth Materials: investigating, observing, measuring, and describing changes in daily weather patterns and phenomena. (2, 4)
ESS-E-A5. Properties of Earth Materials: observing and communicating that rocks are composed of various substances. (1)
ESS-E-A6. Properties of Earth Materials: observing and describing variations in soil. (1)
GLE-E-45. Grade Level Expectation: Properties of Earth Materials: Recognize and describe that rock is composed of different combinations of minerals (ESS-E-A1) (ESS-E-A5)
GLE-E-46. Grade Level Expectation: Properties of Earth Materials: Describe earth processes that have affected selected physical features in students' neighborhoods (e.g., rusting, weathering, erosion) (ESS-E-A1)
GLE-E-47. Grade Level Expectation: Properties of Earth Materials: Describe the difference between weather and climate (ESS-E-A2)
GLE-E-48. Grade Level Expectation: Properties of Earth Materials: Identify examples of the processes of a water cycle (e.g., evaporation, condensation, precipitation, collection of runoff) (ESS-E-A3)
GLE-E-49. Grade Level Expectation: Properties of Earth Materials: Describe climate patterns from recorded weather conditions over a period of time (ESS-E-A4)

GLE-E-51. Grade Level Expectation: Properties of Earth Materials: Identify and compare the components found in soil (ESS-E-A6) (ESS-E-A1)
LA.SE-E. Science and the Environment: In learning environmental science, students will develop an appreciation of the natural environment, learn the importance of environmental quality, and acquire a sense of stewardship. As consumers and citizens, they will be able to recognize how our personal, professional, and political actions affect the natural world.
GLE-E-58. Grade Level Expectation: Describe how humans have had negative and positive effects on organisms and their environments (SE-E-A3) (SE-E-A5)
