LA.ESS-M. Earth and Space Science: The students will develop an understanding of the properties of earth materials, the structure of the Earth system, the Earth's history, and the Earth's place in the universe.
ESS-M-C3. Earth in the Solar System: investigating the force of gravity and the ways gravity governs motion in the solar system and objects on Earth. (2, 3, 4)
ESS-M-C4. Earth in the Solar System: modeling the motions of the Earth-moon-sun system to explain day and night, a year, eclipses, moon phases, and tides. (1, 2, 3, 4)
ESS-M-C5. Earth in the Solar System: modeling the position of the Earth in relationship to other objects in the solar system. (1, 2, 3, 4)
ESS-M-C7. Earth in the Solar System: modeling and explaining how seasons result from variations in amount of the sun's energy hitting the surface due to the tilt of Earth's rotation on its axis and the length of the day. (1, 2, 3, 4)
