Standards with the same topic and subject but for other grades
Collect and analyze data from observations to provide evidence that rocks, soils, and sediments are broken into smaller pieces through mechanical weathering (frost wedging, abrasion, tree root wedging) and are transported by water, ice, wind, gravity, and vegetation.
Interpret maps to determine that the location of mountain ranges, deep ocean trenches, volcanoes, and earthquakes occur in patterns.
Provide examples to support the claim that organisms affect the physical characteristics of their regions.
Use information and illustrations to identify the earth’s major landforms and water bodies.
Investigate how the Earth’s geological features change as a result of erosion (weathering and transportation) and deposition.
Use a Venn diagram to compare and contrast two different landforms or bodies of water.
Prepare a demonstration to illustrate how wind and water affect the earth’s surface features.
Classify landforms and bodies of water according to their geological features and identify them on a map.
Generate and support a claim with evidence that over long periods of time, erosion (weathering and transportation) and deposition have changed landscapes and created new landforms.
Design an investigation to demonstrate how erosion and deposition change the earth’s surface.
