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.
Design an investigation to demonstrate how erosion and deposition change the earth’s surface.
Prepare a chart to compare how volcanoes, earthquakes, faulting, and plate movements affect the earth’s surface features.
Use land maps to demonstrate how mountain ranges affect weather and climate.
