Science Worksheets and Study Guides Seventh Grade. The Sun-Earth-Moon System

The resources above correspond to the standards listed below:

New Hampshire Standards

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:ESS2:8:1.2. Earth, Sun, and Moon: Students will identify recognize and describe how the regular and predictable motions of the Earth and Moon account for phenomena, such as the phases of the Moon and eclipses.
S:ESS2:8:1.3. Earth, Sun, and Moon: Students will identify recognize the relationships between the tides and the phases of the moon; and use tide charts and NOAA information to describe them.
S:ESS2:8:1.4. Earth, Sun, and Moon: Students will identify explain the temporal or positional relationships between or among the Earth, Sun and Moon (e.g., night/day, seasons, year, tide).
S:ESS2:8:3.5. Solar System: Students will explain how gravitational force affects objects in the Solar System (e.g., moons, tides, orbits, satellites).
NH.SPS2. Science Process Skills: Unifying Concepts of Science
S:SPS2:8:4.5. Patterns of Change: Students will apply skills from previous grades and realize that cycles, such as the seasons or body temperature, can be described by their cycle length or frequency, what their highest and lowest values are, and when those values occur; different cycles range from many thousand years down to less than a billionth of a second.
