MN.6.13. Reading Benchmarks: Literacy in Science and Technical Subjects 6-12
Craft and Structure
126.96.36.199. Determine the meaning of symbols, equations, graphical representations, tabular representations, 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.
Integration of Knowledge and Ideas
188.8.131.52. Compare and integrate quantitative or technical information expressed in words in a text with a version of that information expressed visually (e.g., in a flowchart, diagram, model, graph, table, map).
MN.8.1. The Nature of Science and Engineering
8.1.1. The Practice of Science
184.108.40.206. The student will understand that scientific inquiry uses multiple interrelated processes to investigate questions and propose explanations about the natural world.
220.127.116.11.1. Use logical reasoning and imagination to develop descriptions, explanations, predictions and models based on evidence.
MN.8.2. Physical Science
18.104.22.168. The student will understand that waves involve the transfer of energy without the transfer of matter.
22.214.171.124.1. Explain how seismic waves transfer energy through the Earth and across its surfaces.
MN.8.3. Earth and Space Science
8.3.1. Earth Structure and Processes
126.96.36.199. The student will understand that the movement of tectonic plates results from interactions among the lithosphere, mantle and core.
188.8.131.52.2. Correlate the distribution of ocean trenches, mid-ocean ridges and mountain ranges to volcanic and seismic activity.
184.108.40.206.3. Recognize that major geological events, such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and mountain building, result from the slow movement of tectonic plates.
220.127.116.11. The student will understand that landforms are the result of the combination of constructive and destructive processes.
18.104.22.168.1. Explain how landforms result from the processes of crustal deformation, volcanic eruptions, weathering, erosion and deposition of sediment.
