Students understand the concept of plate tectonics including the evidence that supports it (structural, geophysical and paleontological evidence).
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.
