The resources above correspond to the standards listed below:

Missouri Standards

MO.1. Properties and Principals of Matter and Energy
1.1. Changes in properties and states of matter provide evidence of the atomic theory of matter
1.1.D. Physical changes in the state of matter that result from thermal changes can be explained by the Kinetic Theory of Matter
1.1.D.b. Scope and Sequence - Water cycle and Weather: Predict the effect of heat (thermal energy) on the physical properties of water as it changes to and from a solid, liquid, or gas (i.e., freezes/melts, evaporates/condenses/boils)
1.1.I. Mass is conserved during any physical or chemical change
1.1.I.a. Scope and Sequence - Water cycle and Weather: Observe the mass of water remains constant as it changes state (as evidenced in a closed container)
MO.5. Processes and Interactions of the Earth's Systems (Geosphere, Atmosphere, and Hydrosphere)
5.1. Earth's systems (Geosphere, atmosphere, and hydrosphere) have common components and unique structures
5.1.B. The hydrosphere is composed of water (a material with unique properties) and other materials
5.1.B.a. Scope and Sequence - Water Cycle and Weather: Classify major bodies of surface water (e.g., rivers, lakes, oceans, glaciers) as fresh or salt water, flowing or stationary, large or small, solid or liquid, surface or groundwater
5.1.C. The atmosphere (air) is composed of a mixture of gases, including water vapor, and minute particles
5.1.C.a. Scope and Sequence - Water Cycle and Weather: Recognize the atmosphere is composed of a mixture of gases, water, and minute particles.
5.2. Earth's systems (Geosphere, atmosphere, and hydrosphere) interact with one another as they undergo change by common processes
5.2.E. Changes in the form of water as it moves through Earth's systems are described as the water cycle
5.2.E.a. Scope and Sequence - Water Cycle and Weather: Describe and trace the path of water as it cycles through the hydrosphere, geosphere, and atmosphere (i.e., the water cycle: evaporation, condensation, precipitation, surface run-off/ groundwater flow)
5.2.E.b. Scope and Sequence - Water Cycle and Weather: Identify the different forms water can take (e.g., snow, rain, sleet, fog, clouds, dew) as it moves through the water cycle
5.3. Human activity is dependent upon and affects Earth's resources and systems
5.3.A. Earth's materials are limited natural resource's affected by human activity
5.3.A.b. Scope and Sequence - Water Cycle and Weather: Describe how human needs and activities (e.g., irrigation damming of rivers, waste management, sources of drinking water) have affected the quantity and quality of major bodies of fresh water
MO.6. Composition and Structure of the Universe and the Motion of the Objects Within It
6.2. Regular and predictable motions of objects in the universe can be described and explained as the result of gravitational forces
6.2.C. The regular and predictable motions of the Earth and Moon relative to the Sun explain natural phenomena on Earth, such as day, month, year, shadows, moon phases, eclipses, tides, and seasons
6.2.C.a. Scope and Sequence - Solar System: Identify that the Earth rotates once every 24 hours
