Massachusetts Standards

MA.CC.RST.6-8. Reading Standards for Literacy in Science and Technical Subjects
Craft and Structure
RST.6-8.4. Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 6-8 texts and topics.
Earth's History
ES.5. Describe how the movement of the earth's crustal plates causes both slow changes in the earth's surface (e.g., formation of mountains and ocean basins) and rapid ones (e.g., volcanic eruptions and earthquakes).

Earth's Structure
ES.2. Describe the layers of the solid earth, including the lithosphere, the hot convecting mantle, and the dense metallic core.
Heat Transfer in the Earth System
ES.3. Differentiate among radiation, conduction, and convection, the three mechanisms by which heat is transferred through the earth's system.
SIS6. Communicate procedures and results using appropriate science and technology terminology.
