CA.ES. Earth Sciences
ES.3. Water on Earth moves between the oceans and land through the processes of evaporation and condensation. As a basis for understanding this concept:
ES.3.b. Students know when liquid water evaporates, it turns into water vapor in the air and can reappear as a liquid when cooled or as a solid if cooled below the freezing point of water.
ES.3.e. Students know the origin of the water used by their local communities.
ES.4. Energy from the Sun heats Earth unevenly, causing air movements that result in changing weather patterns. As a basis for understanding this concept:
ES.4.b. Students know the influence that the ocean has on the weather and the role that the water cycle plays in weather patterns.
ES.4.e. Students know that the Earth's atmosphere exerts a pressure that decreases with distance above Earth's surface and that at any point it exerts this pressure equally in all directions.
