Earth Space Science

  • ESS1 The Earth and Earth materials, as we know them today, have developed over long periods of time, through constant change processes.

  • ESS2 The Earth is part of a solar system, made up of distinct parts, which have temporal and spatial interrelationships.

    • 1 Earth, Sun, and Moon

      • S:ESS2:6:1.1 Recognize and describe how the regular and predictable motions of the Earth and Moon explain certain Earth phenomena, such as day and night, the seasons, the year, shadows and the tides.

      • S:ESS2:6:1.2 Recognize that of all the known planets, Earth appears to be somewhat unique, and describe the conditions that exist on Earth that allow it to support life.

    • 2 Energy

      • S:ESS2:6:2.1 Recognize how the tilt of the Earth's axis and the Earth's revolution around the Sun affect seasons and weather patterns.

      • S:ESS2:6:2.2 Identify and describe seasonal, daylight and weather patterns as they relate to energy.

    • 3 Solar System

    • 4 View from Earth

      • S:ESS2:6:4.1 Explain the historical perspective of planetary exploration and man's achievements in space, beginning with Russia's Sputnik mission in 1957.

      • S:ESS2:6:4.2 Describe man's perception of the constellations throughout history, and explain how he has used them to his advantage, including navigational purposes and to explain historical events.

  • ESS3 The origin and evolution of galaxies and the universe demonstrate fundamental principles of physical science across vast distances and time.

    • 1 Size and Scale

    • 2 Stars and Galaxies

    • 3 Universe

  • ESS4 The growth of scientific knowledge in Earth Space Science has been advanced through the development of technology and is used (alone or in combination with other sciences) to identify, understand and solve local and global issues.

    • 1 Design Technology

      • S:ESS4:6:1.1 Understand that technology is used to design tools that improve our ability to measure and observe the world.

    • 2 Tools

    • 3 Local and Global Environmental Issues

      • S:ESS4:6:3.1 Provide examples of products that man has developed which allow humans to do things that they could not do otherwise; and identify the natural materials used to produce these products.

      • S:ESS4:6:3.2 Identify the most appropriate materials for a given design task with requirements for specific properties, such as weight, strength, hardness, and flexibility.

      • S:ESS4:6:3.3 Provide examples of how to reduce waste through conservation, recycling, and reuse.

    • 4 Career Technical Education Connections

      • S:ESS4:6:4.1 Understand that some form of science is used in most jobs/careers and that some jobs/careers specifically require knowledge of Earth science.
