Unit 3: Plate Tectonics
HS-ESS2-1 Develop a model to illustrate how Earth’s internal and surface processes operate at different spatial and temporal scales to form continental and ocean-floor features.
HS-ESS2-3* Develop a model based on evidence of Earth’s interior to describe the cycling of matter by thermal convection.
HS-ESS3-1* Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the availability of natural resources, occurrence of natural hazards, and changes in climate have influenced human activity.
HS-ESS3-2 Evaluate competing design solutions for developing, managing, and utilizing energy and mineral resources based on cost-benefit ratios.
How can evidence-based models demonstrate Earth’s internal and external processes?
How do these internal and external processes impact humanity?
