Earth and Space Science
E1: The composition of the Earth and its atmosphere and the natural and human processes occurring within them shape the Earth’s surface and its climate.
Fourth Grade: Systems and System Models; Energy and Matter; Stability and Change
Earth and Space Sciences: Students develop an understanding of the different Earth systems and how they interact with each other. They understand how geological systems change and shape the Earth and the evidence that is used to understand these changes. They also understand how weather, climate, and human interactions can impact the environment.
