Ohio 8th Grade Standards:
The interactions between the hydrosphere and lithosphere are studied as they relate to erosional events (e.g., flooding, mass wasting). The characteristics of rocks and soil, the climate, location, topography and geologic process are studied. Distinguishing between major geologic processes (e.g., tectonic activity, erosion, deposition) and the resulting feature on the surface of Earth is the focus of this content statement. It is important to build on what was included in the elementary grades (recognizing features), enabling students to describe conditions for formation. Topographic, physical and aerial maps, cross sections, field trips and virtual settings are methods of demonstrating the structure and formation of each type of feature. The use of technology (remote sensing, satellite data, LANDSAT) can be used to access real-time photographs and graphics related to landforms and features.
