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-B3. Earth History: understanding that earth processes such as erosion and weathering affect the Earth today and are similar to those which occurred in the past. (1, 2, 3, 4)
GLE-M-31. Grade Level Expectation: Earth History: Compare fossils from different geologic eras and areas of Earth to show that life changes over time (ESS-M-B1)
GLE-M-34. Grade Level Expectation: Earth History: Apply geological principles to determine the relative ages of rock layers (e.g., original horizontality, superposition, cross-cutting relationships) (ESS-M-B3)
GLE-M-35. Grade Level Expectation: Earth History: Describe how processes seen today are similar to those in the past (e.g., weathering, erosion, lithospheric plate movement) (ESS-M-B3)
