MS.4. Earth and Space Science: Develop an understanding of the properties of Earth materials, objects in the sky, and changes in Earth and sky.
4.a. Recall that soil is made up of various materials (weathered rock, minerals, plant and animal remains, living organisms.) (DOK 1)
4.b. Compare and contrast changes in the Earth's surface that are due to slow processes (erosion, weathering, mountain building) and rapid processes (landslides, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, floods, asteroid collisions). (DOK 2)
4.c. Gather and display local weather information such as temperature, precipitation, clouds, etc., on graphs and use graphs of weather patterns to predict weather conditions. (DOK 3)
4.c.1. Instruments (wind vane, rain gauge, thermometers, anemometers, and barometers)
4.c.3. Water cycle (evaporation, precipitation, condensation)
