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
5.3. 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.a. Scope and Sequence - Water Cycle and Weather: Explain how major bodies of water are important natural resources for human activity (e.g., food recreation, habitat, irrigation, solvent, transportation)
MO.8. Impact of Science, Technology and Human Activity
8.1. The nature of technology can advance, and is advanced by, science as it seeks to apply scientific knowledge in ways that meet human needs
