Research the development of the theory of plate tectonics. Use the theory to construct an explanation for how changes in Earth’s crust cause mountain formation, volcanoes, earthquakes, and tsunamis. Provide evidence to support the explanation using information pertaining to plate boundary types (divergent, convergent, transform).
Considering Earth’s position within our solar system, use a model to demonstrate the causes of day length, seasons, and climate.
Analyze the composition of the Earth’s atmosphere. Obtain information and use graphs to observe patterns regarding stability and change within the Earth’s atmospheric composition (O₂, N₂, CO₂, etc.) over geologic time.
Differentiate weather and climate and analyze and interpret data examining naturally occurring patterns pertaining to each.
Plan and carry out an investigation examining the chemical and physical properties of water and the impact of water on Earth’s topography. Analyze data and share findings.
