Minnesota Standards

MN.5.3. Earth and Space Science
5.3.1. Earth Structure and Processes The student will understand that the surface of the Earth changes. Some changes are due to slow processes and some changes are due to rapid processes. Explain how slow processes, such as water erosion, and rapid processes, such as landslides and volcanic eruptions, form features of the Earth's surface.
5.3.4. Human Interaction with Earth Systems The student will understand that in order to maintain and improve their existence, humans interact with and influence Earth systems. Give examples of how mineral and energy resources are obtained and processed and how that processing modifies their properties to make them more useful.
