Resources Alignment with NGSS and Utah SEEd
Bundle Description

Students will be engaged in hands-on labs and close reading passages to learn about Earth Systems and how they continually change our planet.

This bundle is a collection of resources designed to teach middle school Earth Science from the Earth Systems NGSS strand. It is aligned with both NGSS for Middle School. It is also aligned with CCSS for reading informational text.

This resource is designed to meet the NGSS Disciplinary Core Ideas: History of The Planet Earth, Plate Tectonics and Large-Scale System Interactions, Earth's Materials and Systems, The Role of Water in Earth's Surface Processes.

This resource is designed to meet the standard for NGSS Earths Systems:

MS-ESS2-2. Construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience processes have changed Earth’s surface at varying time and spatial scales.

MS-ESS2-1. Develop a model to describe the cycling of Earth’s materials and the flow of energy that drives this process.

MS-ESS2-2. Construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience processes have changed Earth’s surface at

varying time and spatial scales.

MS-ESS2-3.

Analyze and interpret data on the distribution of fossils and rocks, continental shapes, and seafloor structures to provide evidence of the past plate motions.

This resource is also aligned with Earth Science for 7th Grade Utah SEED.

Utah SEEd 7.2.1 Develop a model of the rock cycle to describe the relationship between energy flow and matter cycling that create igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks. Emphasize the process of melting, crystallization, weathering, deposition, sedimentation, and deformation, which act together to form minerals and rocks.

Standard 7.2.2 Construct an explanation based on evidence for how processes have changed Earth’s surface at varying time and spatial scales.

Utah SEEd

Standard 7.2.5

Ask questions and analyze and interpret data about the patterns between plate tectonics and:

(1) The occurrence of earthquakes and volcanoes.

(2) Continental and ocean floor features.
