The resources above correspond to the standards listed below:

Tennessee Standards

TN.7. Earth and Space Science: The Earth
CS.7. Major geologic events that occur over eons or brief moments in time continually shape and reshape the surface of the Earth, resulting in continuous global change.
GQ.7. How is the earth affected by long-term and short term geological cycles and the influence of man?
0307.7. Checks for Understanding
0307.7.1. Use a Venn diagram to compare and contrast two different landforms or bodies of water.
0307.7.2. Analyze the physical characteristics of different kinds of rocks.
GLE.0307.7. Grade Level Expectations
GLE.0307.7.1. Use information and illustrations to identify the earth's major landforms and water bodies.
