North Carolina Essential Standards Correlations for "Earth, Moon, and Sun"


GRADE 1
Science Correlations
1.E.1.1 Earth in the Universe Recognize differences in the features of the day and night sky and apparent movement of objects across the sky as observed from Earth.
1.E.1.2 Earth in the Universe Recognize patterns of observable changes in the Moon's appearance from day to day.
Information and Technology Correlations
1.SI.1.1 Sources of Information Identify sources of information.
1.TT.1.1 Technology Tools Use a variety of technology tools to gather data and information.
GRADE 2
Science Correlations
2.E.1.1 Earth Systems, Structures and Processes Summarize how energy from the sun serves as a sources of light that warms the land, air, and water.
Information and Technology Correlations
2.SI.1.1 Sources of Information Classify sources of information as relevant for particular topics or purposes.
2.TT.1.1 Sources of Information Use a variety of technology tools to gather data and information.
GRADE 3
Science Correlations
3.E.1.1 Earth in the Universe Recognize that the earth is part of a system call the solar system that includes the sun (a star), planets, and many moons and the earth is the third planet from the sun.
3.E.1.2 Earth in the Universe Recognize that changes in the length and direction of an object's shadow indicate the apparent changing position of the Sun during the day although patterns of the stars in the sky, to include the Sun, stay the same.
3.P.3.2 Energy: Conservation and Transfer Recognize that energy can be transferred from a warmer object to a cooler one by contact or at a distance and the cooler objects get warmer.
3.L.2.2 Ecosystems Explain how environmental conditions determine how well plants survive and grow.
Information and Technology Correlations
3.SI.1.1 Sources of Information Classify various types of resources as appropriate or inappropriate for purposes.

3.TT.1.1 Technology as a Tool Use a variety of technology tools to gather data and information.
GRADE 4
Science Correlations
4.E.1.1 Earth in the Universe Explain the cause of day and night based on the rotation of Earth on its axis.
4.E.1.2 Earth in the Universe Explain the monthly changes in the appearance of the moon, based on the moon's orbit around the earth.
4.E.2.3 Earth History Give examples of how the surface of the earth changes due to slow processes such as erosion and weathering, and rapid processes such as landslides, volcanic eruptions, and earthquakes.
