New Hampshire Standards
NH.ESS1. Earth Space Science: The Earth and Earth materials, as we know them today, have developed over long periods of time, through constant change processes.
S:ESS1:8:1.1. Atmosphere, Climate, and Weather: Students will identify and describe the processes of the water cycle and explain their effects on climatic patterns.
S:ESS1:8:7.3. Water: Students will explain the processes that cause cycling of water into and out of the atmosphere and their connections to our planet's weather patterns.
NH.ESS2. Earth Space Science: The Earth is part of a solar system, made up of distinct parts, which have temporal and spatial interrelationships.
S:ESS2:8:2.1. Energy: Students will describe the Sun as the principle energy source for phenomena on the Earth's surface.
S:ESS2:8:3.1. Solar System: Students will identify the characteristics and movement patterns of the planets in our Solar System and differentiate between them.
NH.PS2. Physical Science: Energy is necessary for change to occur in matter. Energy can be stored, transferred and transformed, but cannot be destroyed.
S:PS2:8:3.2. Energy: Students will recognize the Sun is a major energy source for the Earth, and describes how it affects the planet's surface.
