Missouri Standards

MO.5. Processes and Interactions of the Earth's Systems (Geosphere, Atmosphere, and Hydrosphere)
5.2. Earth's systems (Geosphere, atmosphere, and hydrosphere) interact with one another as they undergo change by common processes
5.2.D. Changes in the Earth over time can be inferred through rock and fossil evidence
5.2.D.a. Scope and Sequence - Rock Cycle and Plate Tectonics: Describe the methods used to estimate geologic time and the age of the Earth (e.g., techniques used to date rocks and rock layers, presence of fossils)
5.2.D.b. Scope and Sequence - Rock Cycle and Plate Tectonics: Use rock and fossil evidence to make inferences about the age, history, and changing life forms and environment of the Earth (i.e., changes in successive layers of sedimentary rock and the fossils contained within them, similarities between fossils in different geographic locations, similarities between fossils and organisms present today, fossils of organisms indicating changes in climate, fossils of extinct organisms))
