Earth and Space Science

  • 6 The cosmos is vast and explored well enough to know its basic structure and operational principles.

    • What big ideas guide human understanding about the origin and structure of the universe, Earth's place in the cosmos, and observable motions and patterns in the sky?

  • 7 Major geologic events that occur over eons or brief moments in time continually shape and reshape the surface of the Earth, resulting in continuous global change.

    • How is the earth affected by long-term and short term geological cycles and the influence of man?

      • GLE 0507.7.1 Compare geologic events responsible for the earth's major geological features.

  • 8 The earth is surrounded by an active atmosphere and an energy system that controls the distribution life, local weather, climate, and global temperature.

    • How do the physical characteristics and the chemical makeup of the atmosphere influence surface processes and life on Earth?

      • GLE 0507.8.1 Analyze and predict how major landforms and bodies of water affect atmospheric conditions.

Physical Science

  • 9 The composition and structure of matter is known, and it behaves according to principles that are generally understood.

  • 10 Various forms of energy are constantly being transformed into other types without any net loss of energy from the system.

  • 11 Objects move in ways that can be observed, described, predicted, and measured.

    • What causes objects to move differently under different circumstances?

  • 12 Everything in the universe exerts a gravitational force on everything else; there is an interplay between magnetic fields and electrical currents.

    • What are the scientific principles that explain gravity and electromagnetism?

      • GLE 0507.12.1 Recognize that the earth attracts objects without directly touching them.

      • GLE 0507.12.2 Investigate how the shape of an object influences the way that it falls toward the earth.

      • GLE 0507.12.3 Provide examples of how forces can act at a distance.
