Louisiana Standards

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-A1. Structure of the Earth: understanding that the Earth is layered by density with an inner and outer core, a mantle, and a thin outer crust. (1)
ESS-M-A2. Structure of the Earth: understanding that the Earth's crust and solid upper mantle are dividing plates that move in response to convection currents (energy transfers) in the mantle. (1)
GLE-M-10. Grade Level Expectation: Structure of Earth: Illustrate the movement of convection currents (ESS-M-A2)
GLE-M-11. Grade Level Expectation: Structure of Earth: Illustrate the movements of lithospheric plates as stated in the plate tectonics theory (ESS-M-A2)
GLE-M-8. Grade Level Expectation: Structure of Earth: Identify and describe the four density layers of Earth (ESS-M-A1)
GLE-M-9. Grade Level Expectation: Structure of Earth: Explain the historical development of the theories of plate tectonics, including continental drift and sea-floor spreading (ESS-M-A2)
