Students know how successive rock strata and fossils can be used to confirm the age, history, and changing life forms of the Earth, including how this evidence is affected by the folding, breaking, and uplifting of layers.
Earth and Space Science
- Earth is composed of materials that move through the biogeochemical cycles. Earth’s features are shaped by ongoing and dynamic processes. These processes can be constructive or destructive and occur over geologic time scales.
Students understand evidence for processes that take place on a geologic time scale.
