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.
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:ESS1:6:3.1. Fossils: Students will recognize that fossils offer important evidence relating to changes in life forms and environmental conditions over geologic time.
S:ESS1:6:3.2. Fossils: Students will recognize identify connections between fossil evidence and geological events, such as changes in atmospheric composition, movement of tectonic plates, and asteroid/comet impact; and develop a means of sequencing this evidence.
S:ESS1:6:5.3. Processes and Rates of Change: Students will recognize that vibrations in materials set up wavelike disturbances that spread away from the source, as with earthquakes.
NH.ESS2. Earth Space Science: The Earth is part of a solar system, made up of distinct parts, which have temporal and spatial interrelationships.
S:ESS2:6:2.1. Energy: Students will recognize how the tilt of the Earth's axis and the Earth's revolution around the Sun affect seasons and weather patterns.
S:ESS2:6:2.2. Energy: Students will identify and describe seasonal, daylight and weather patterns as they relate to energy.
