Louisiana Standards

LA.ESS-M. Earth and Space Science: The students will develop an understanding of the properties of earth materials, the structure of the Earth system, the Earth's history, and the Earth's place in the universe.
ESS-M-A2. Structure of the Earth: understanding that the Earth's crust and solid upper mantle are dividing plates that move in response to convection currents (energy transfers) in the mantle. (1)
ESS-M-A3. Structure of the Earth: investigating the characteristics of earthquakes and volcano's and identifying zones where they may occur. (2, 3, 4)
ESS-M-A4. Structure of the Earth: investigating how soils are formed from weathered rock and decomposed organic material. (2, 3, 4)
ESS-M-A5. Structure of the Earth: identifying the characteristics and uses of minerals and rocks and recognizing that rocks are mixtures of minerals. (2, 3, 4)
ESS-M-A6. Structure of the Earth: explaining the processes involved in the rock cycle. (1, 4)
ESS-M-B3. Earth History: understanding that earth processes such as erosion and weathering affect the Earth today and are similar to those which occurred in the past. (1, 2, 3, 4)
GLE-E-30. Grade Level Expectation: Structure of the Earth: Identify organic and inorganic matter in soil samples with the aid of a hand lens or microscope (ESS-M-A4)
GLE-E-31. Grade Level Expectation: Structure of the Earth: Identify common rocks and minerals and explain their uses and economic significance (ESS-M-A5)
