The student is expected to:

  • know that some change occurs in cycles (*5.6-A).
  • identify and observe actions, such as flow, that require time for changes to be measurable (*5.11-A).
  • identify forces, such as movement of water, that shape the features of Earth (*6.6-C).
  • demonstrate that changes in motion can be measured and graphically represented (*6.6-B).
  • know that an equilibrium of a system may change (*7.5).
  • relate the role of oceans to climatic changes (*8.12-B).
