Next Generation Science Standards

MS-ESS1. Earth’s Place in the Universe - Students who demonstrate understanding can:
MS-ESS1.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas
ESS1.B: Earth and the Solar System
ESS1.B:3. The solar system appears to have formed from a disk of dust and gas, drawn together by gravity. (MS-ESS1-2)
ESS1.C: The History of Planet Earth
ESS1.C:1. The geologic time scale interpreted from rock strata provides a way to organize Earth’s history. Analyses of rock strata and the fossil record provide only relative dates, not an absolute scale. (MS-ESS1-4)
MS-ESS2. Earth’s Systems - Students who demonstrate understanding can:
MS-ESS2.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas
ESS2.A: Earth’s Materials and Systems
ESS2.A:2. The planet’s systems interact over scales that range from microscopic to global in size, and they operate over fractions of a second to billions of years. These interactions have shaped Earth’s history and will determine its future. (MS-ESS2-2)
