OK.E/SS. EARTH/SPACE SCIENCE
E/SS.4. Structures and Forces of the Earth and Solar System - The earth is mostly rock, three-fourths of its surface is covered by a relatively thin layer of water, and the entire planet is surrounded by a relatively thin blanket of air, and is able to support life. The student will engage in investigations that integrate the process standards and lead to the discovery of the following objectives:
E/SS.4.2. The formation, weathering, sedimentation, and reformation of rock constitute a continuing rock cycle in which the total amount of material stays the same as its form changes.
OK.SPI. SCIENCE PROCESSES AND INQUIRY
SPI.2. Classify - Classifying establishes order. Objects, organisms, and events are classified based on similarities, differences, and interrelationships. The student will accomplish these objectives to meet this process standard.
SPI.2.1. Using observable properties, place an object, organism, and/or event into a classification system (e.g., dichotomous keys, periodic table, biological hierarchy).
SPI.2.2. Identify properties by which a set of objects, organisms, or events could be ordered.
SPI.4. Interpret and Communicate - Interpreting is the process of recognizing patterns in collected data by making inferences, predictions, or conclusions. Communicating is the process of describing, recording, and reporting experimental procedures and results to others. Communication may be oral, written, or mathematical and includes organizing ideas, using appropriate vocabulary, graphs, other visual representations, and mathematical equations. The student will accomplish these objectives to meet this process standard.
SPI.4.3. Evaluate to develop reasonable explanation and/or predictions.
