Research and explain how systems (i.e., the atmosphere, geosphere, and/or hydrosphere), interact and support life in the biosphere.
Earth and Space Science
Earth’s Systems and Cycles
Earth’s oceans and landforms can be affected in various ways by natural processes in one or more of Earth’s spheres (i.e., atmosphere, biosphere, geosphere, and hydrosphere). Humans cannot eliminate natural hazards caused by these processes but can take steps to reduce their impacts. Human activities can affect the land and oceans in positive and negative ways.
Students will demonstrate an understanding of how natural processes and human activities affect the features of Earth’s landforms and oceans.
