NV.E.5.A. Atmospheric Processes and the Water Cycle (Earth and Space Science Unifying Concept A): Students understand the water cycle's relationship to weather.
E.5.A.2. Sun's Energy: Students know the processes of the water cycle, including the role of the Sun. E/S
E.5.A.3. Sun's Energy: Students know most of Earth's surface is covered with fresh or salt water. W/L
E.5.A.4. Weather: Students know the role of water in many phenomena related to weather (e.g., thunderstorms, snowstorms, flooding, drought). E/S
E.5.A.5. Weather: Students know air is a substance that surrounds us, takes up space, and moves around us as wind. I/S
NV.E.5.C. Earth's Composition and Structure (Earth and Space Science Unifying Concept C): Students understand that features on the Earth's surface are constantly changed by a combination of slow and rapid processes.
E.5.C.2. Geologic Processes: Students know water, wind, and ice constantly change the Earth's land surface by eroding rock and soil in some places and depositing them in other areas. E/S
E.5.C.3. Geologic Processes: Students know landforms may result from slow processes (e.g. erosion and deposition) and fast processes (e.g. volcanoes, earthquakes, landslides, flood, and human activity). E/S
E.5.C.5. Earth's Composition and Resources: Students know soil varies from place to place and has both biological and mineral components. E/S
