Science Worksheets and Study Guides Eighth Grade. The Movement of Ocean Water

The resources above correspond to the standards listed below:

Michigan Standards

MI.E. Earth Science
E.ES. Earth Systems: Develop an understanding of the warming of the Earth by the sun as the major source of energy for phenomenon on Earth and how the sun's warming relates to weather, climate, seasons, and the water cycle. Understand how human interaction and use of natural resources affects the environment.
E.ES.M.1. Solar Energy- The sun is the major source of energy for phenomena on the surface of the Earth.
E.ES.07.12. Describe the relationship between the warming of the atmosphere of the Earth by the sun and convection within the atmosphere and oceans.
E.ES.07.13. Describe how the warming of the Earth by the sun produces winds and ocean currents.
E.ES.M.7. Weather and Climate- Global patterns of atmospheric and oceanic movement influence weather and climate.
E.ES.07.73. Explain how the temperature of the oceans affects the different climates on Earth because water in the oceans holds a large amount of heat.
MI.P. Physical Science
P.EN. Energy: Develop an understanding that there are many forms of energy (such as heat, light, sound, and electrical) and that energy is transferable by convection, conduction, or radiation. Understand energy can be in motion, called kinetic; or it can be stored, called potential. Develop an understanding that as temperature increases, more energy is added to a system. Understand nuclear reactions in the sun produce light and heat for the Earth.
P.EN.M.3. Waves and Energy-Waves have energy and transfer energy when they interact with matter. Examples of waves include sound waves, seismic waves, waves on water, and light waves.
P.EN.07.31. Identify examples of waves, including sound waves, seismic waves, and waves on water.
