Many educators surveyed have noted they’re lacking in the knowledge and resources needed to teach these important, and soon to be student tested, concepts.
Next Generation Science Standards
- Earth: NGSS: MS-ESS2-4. Develop a model to describe the cycling of water through Earth's systems driven by energy from the sun and the force of gravity.
- Earth:NGSS: MS-ESS2-6. Develop and use a model to describe how unequal heating and rotation of the Earth cause patterns of atmospheric and oceanic circulation that determine regional climates.''NGSS: MS-ESS3-3. Apply scientific principles to design a method for monitoring and minimizing a human impact on the environment.
- Life: NGSS: MS-LS1-5. Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for how environmental and genetic factors influence the growth of organisms.
- Earth: NGSS: MS-ESS3-3. Apply scientific principles to design a method for monitoring and minimizing a human impact on the environment.
- Earth: NGSS: MS-ESS3-4. Construct an argument supported by evidence for how increases in human population and per-capita consumption of natural resources impact Earth’s systems.
- Earth: NGSS: MS-ESS3-5. Ask questions to clarify evidence of the factors that have caused the rise in global temperatures over the past century.
- Life: NGSS: MS-LS1-7. Develop a model to describe how food is rearranged through chemical reactions forming new molecules that support growth and/or release energy as this matter moves through an organism.
- Life: NGSS: MS-LS2-3. Develop a model to describe the cycling of matter and flow of energy among living and nonliving parts of an ecosystem.
- Life: NGSS: MS-LS1-6. Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for the role of photosynthesis in the cycling of matter and
- flow of energy into and out of organisms.
- Life Science: NGSS: HS-LS2-6. Evaluate the claims, evidence, and reasoning that the complex interactions in ecosystems maintain relatively consistent numbers and types of organisms in stable conditions, but changing conditions may result in a new ecosystem.
- Earth & Space Science: NGSS: HS-ESS3-4. Evaluate or refine a technological solution that reduces impacts of human activities on natural systems.
- Earth & Space Science:NGSS: HS-ESS3-6. Use a computational representation to illustrate the relationships among Earth systems and how those relationships are being modified due to human activity.
- FL S# SC.7.E.6.6 - Identify the impact that humans have had on Earth, such as deforestation, urbanization, desertification, erosion, air and water quality, changing the flow of water.Air Quality Forecaster
