Next Generation Science Standards

MS-ESS3. Earth and Human Activity - Students who demonstrate understanding can:
MS-ESS3-4. Construct an argument supported by evidence for how increases in human population and per-capita consumption of natural resources impact Earth’s systems.
MS-ESS3.CETS. Connections to Engineering, Technology, and Applications of Science
MS-ESS3.CETS.1. Influence of Science, Engineering, and Technology on Society and the Natural World
MS-ESS3.CETS.1.1. All human activity draws on natural resources and has both short and long-term consequences, positive as well as negative, for the health of people and the natural environment. ,
MS-ESS3.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas
ESS3.A: Natural Resources
ESS3.A:1. Humans depend on Earth’s land, ocean, atmosphere, and biosphere for many different resources. Minerals, fresh water, and biosphere resources are limited, and many are not renewable or replaceable over human lifetimes. These resources are distributed unevenly around the planet as a result of past geologic processes. (MS-ESS3-1)
ESS3.D: Global Climate Change
ESS3.D:1. Human activities, such as the release of greenhouse gases from burning fossil fuels, are major factors in the current rise in Earth’s mean surface temperature (global warming). Reducing the level of climate change and reducing human vulnerability to whatever climate changes do occur depend on the understanding of climate science, engineering capabilities, and other kinds of knowledge, such as understanding of human behavior and on applying that knowledge wisely in decisions and activities.
