New Hampshire College and Career Ready Standards
NH.SPS1. Science Process Skills: Scientific Inquiry and Critical Thinking Skills
S:SPS1:6:1.7. Making Observations and Asking Questions: Students will apply skills from previous grades and compare methods of classification for a specific purpose.
NH.ESS1. Earth Space Science: The Earth and Earth materials, as we know them today, have developed over long periods of time, through constant change processes.
S:ESS1:6:2.3. Composition and Features: Students will identify and distinguish between various landforms using a map and/or digital images.
S:ESS1:6:5.2. Processes and Rates of Change: Students will explain how some changes to the Earth's surface happen abruptly, as a result of landslides, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions; while other changes happen very slowly as a result of weathering, erosions and deposition of sediment caused by waves, wind, water and ice.
S:ESS1:6.6.3. Rock Cycle: Students will describe the properties of soil, such as color, texture, capacity to retain water, and its ability to support plant life.
NH.ESS4. Earth Space Science: The growth of scientific knowledge in Earth Space Science has been advanced through the development of technology and is used (alone or in combination with other sciences) to identify, understand and solve local and global issues.
S:ESS4:6:2.2. Tools: Students will employ knowledge of basic weather symbols to read and interpret weather and topographic maps.
