  • Understand how changes in climate are tied to the Earth System.
  • Participate in scientific inquiry and construct logical conclusions based on evidence.
  • Recognize the global impacts of a change in climate.
  • Appreciate the value of Earth science information in improving the quality of life globally and within the community.
