        • Clarification Statement - S.MS.ESS.2.1.CS:
          Emphasis is on the processes of melting, crystallization, weathering, deformation, and sedimentation, which act together to form minerals and rocks through the cycling of Earth’s materials.
        • Assessment Boundary - S.MS.ESS.2.1.AB:
          Assessment does not include the identification and naming of minerals and rocks but could include the general classification of rocks as igneous, metamorphic, or sedimentary.
        • Science and Engineering Practices - 6-8.SEP2.3:
          Develop and use a model to describe phenomena.
        • Disciplinary Core Ideas - S.MS.ESS.2.1.DCI:
          ESS2.A: Earth’s Materials and Systems •All Earth processes are the result of energy flowing and matter cycling within and among the planet’s systems. This energy is derived from the sun and Earth’s hot interior. The energy that flows and matter that cycles produce chemical and physical changes in Earth’s materials and living organisms.
        • Crosscutting Concepts - CC6.3:
          Explanations of stability and change in natural or designed systems can be constructed by examining the changes over time nd processes at different scales, including the atomic scale.
        • Clarification Statement - S.MS.ESS.2.4.CS:
          Emphasis is on the ways water changes its state as it moves through the multiple pathways of the hydrologic cycle. Examples of models could include conceptual or physical models.
        • Assessment Boundary - S.MS.ESS.2.4.AB:
          A quantitative understanding of the latent heats of vaporization and fusion is not assessed.
        • Science and Engineering Practices - 6-8.SEP2.2:
          Develop a model to describe unobservable mechanisms.
        • Disciplinary Core Ideas - S.MS.ESS.2.4.DCI:
          ESS2.C: The Roles of Water in Earth’s Surface Processes •(NYSED) Water continually cycles among land, ocean, and atmosphere via transpiration, evaporation, condensation, sublimation, deposition, precipitation, infiltration, and runoff. •(NYSED) Global movements of water and its changes in form are driven by sunlight and gravity.
        • Crosscutting Concepts - CC5.9:
          Within a natural or designed system, the transfer of energy drives the motion and/or cycling of matter.
        • Clarification Statement - S.MS.ESS.3.1.CS:
          Emphasis is on how these resources are limited and typically non-renewable, and how their distributions are significantly changing as a result of removal by humans. Examples of uneven distributions of resources as a result of past processes ould include p
        • Science and Engineering Practices - 6-8.SEP6.3:
          Construct a scientific explanation based on valid and reliable evidence obtained from sources (including the students’ own experiments) and the assumption that theories and laws that describe the natural world operate today as they did in the past and wil
        • Disciplinary Core Ideas - S.MS.ESS.3.1.DCI:
          ESS3.A: Natural Resources •Humans depend on Earth’s land, ocean, atmosphere, and biosphere for many different resources. Minerals, fresh water, and biosphere resources are limited, and many are not renewable or replaceable over human lifetimes. These resources are distributed unevenly around the planet as a result of past geologic processes.
        • Crosscutting Concepts - CC2.5:
          Cause and effect relationships may be used to predict phenomena in natural or designed systems.
