It addresses the following standards:
SOL 5.7: The student will investigate and understand how Earth’s surface is constantly changing. Key concepts include:
a) identification of rock types;
b) the rock cycle and how transformations between rocks occur;
c) Earth history and fossil evidence;
d) the basic structure of Earth’s interior;
e) changes in Earth’s crust due to plate tectonics;
f) weathering, erosion, and deposition; and
g) human impact.
Also aligns with Virginia Beach City Public Schools Standard for 4th grade:
SCI.4.3 The student will understand how Earth’s surface is constantly changing.

SCI.4.3.3 Describe how fossil evidence allows us to make inferences about Earth’s history. (SOL 5.7c)
SCI.4.3.4 Describe the structure of Earth in terms of its major layers. (SOL 5.7d)
SCI.4.3.5 Explain how plate tectonics causes changes in Earth’s crust. (SOL 5.7e)
