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.B. There are internal processes and sources of energy within the geosphere that cause changes in Earth's crustal plates
5.2.B.a. Scope and Sequence - Rock Cycle and Plate Tectonics: Explain convection currents are the result of uneven heating inside the mantle resulting in the melting of rock materials, convection of magma, eruption/flow of magma, and movement of crustal plates
5.2.B.c. Scope and Sequence - Rock Cycle and Plate Tectonics: Describe how the movement of crustal plates can cause earthquakes and volcanic eruptions that can result in mountain building and trench formation
