Section 1 SC.912.N.1.7 Recognize the role of creativity in constructing scientific questions, methods and explanations.

SC.912.E.6.4 Analyze how specific geologic processes and features are expressed in Florida and elsewhere.

MA.912.S.1.2 Determine appropriate and consistent standards of measurement for the data to be collected in a survey or experiment.
Section 2 SC.912.N.1.6 Describe how scientific inferences are drawn from scientific observations and provide examples from the content being studied.

SC.912.N.1.7 Recognize the role of creativity in constructing scientific questions, methods and explanations.

SC.912.E.6.4 Analyze how specific geologic processes and features are expressed in Florida and elsewhere.

MA.912.S.1.2 Determine appropriate and consistent standards of measurement for the data to be collected in a survey or experiment.
Section 3 SC.912.N.1.6 Describe how scientific inferences are drawn from scientific observations and provide examples from the content being studied.

SC.912.N.1.7 Recognize the role of creativity in constructing scientific questions, methods and explanations.

SC.912.N.3.5 Describe the function of models in science, and identify the wide range of models used in science.

SC.912.E.6.4 Analyze how specific geologic processes and features are expressed in Florida and elsewhere.

MA.912.S.1.2 Determine appropriate and consistent standards of measurement for the data to be collected in a survey or experiment.
Section 4 SC.912.N.1.4 Identify sources of information and assess their reliability according to the strict standards of scientific investigation.

SC.912.N.1.6 Describe how scientific inferences are drawn from scientific observations and provide examples from the content being studied.

SC.912.N.3.5 Describe the function of models in science, and identify the wide range of models used in science.

SC.912.E.6.4 Analyze how specific geologic processes and features are expressed in Florida and elsewhere.

LA.910.4.2.2 The student will record information and ideas from primary and/or secondary sources accurately and coherently, noting the validity and reliability of these sources and attributing sources of information.

MA.912.S.1.2 Determine appropriate and consistent standards of measurement for the data to be collected in a survey or experiment.
Section 5 SC.912.N.2.4 Explain that scientific knowledge is both durable and robust and open to change. Scientific knowledge can change because it is often examined and re-examined by new investigations and scientific argumentation. Because of these frequent examinations, scientific knowledge becomes stronger, leading to its durability.

SC.912.N.3.5 Describe the function of models in science, and identify the wide range of models used in science.

SC.912.E.6.4 Analyze how specific geologic processes and features are expressed in Florida and elsewhere.
Section 6 SC.912.N.1.6 Describe how scientific inferences are drawn from scientific observations and provide examples from the content being studied.

SC.912.N.3.5 Describe the function of models in science, and identify the wide range of models used in science.

SC.912.E.6.4 Analyze how specific geologic processes and features are expressed in Florida and elsewhere.
Section 7 SC.912.N.1.4 Identify sources of information and assess their reliability according to the strict standards of scientific investigation.

SC.912.N.2.4 Explain that scientific knowledge is both durable and robust and open to change. Scientific knowledge can change because it is often examined and re-examined by new investigations and scientific argumentation. Because of these frequent examinations, scientific knowledge becomes stronger, leading to its durability.

SC.912.N.3.3 Explain that scientific laws are descriptions of specific relationships under given conditions in nature, but do not offer explanations for those relationships.

SC.912.N.3.5 Describe the function of models in science, and identify the wide range of models used in science.

SC.912.E.6.4 Analyze how specific geologic processes and features are expressed in Florida and elsewhere.

LA.910.4.2.2 The student will record information and ideas from primary and/or secondary sources accurately and coherently, noting the validity and reliability of these sources and attributing sources of information.
Section 8 SC.912.N.1.6 Describe how scientific inferences are drawn from scientific observations and provide examples from the content being studied.

SC.912.N.2.4 Explain that scientific knowledge is both durable and robust and open to change. Scientific knowledge can change because it is often examined and re-examined by new investigations and scientific argumentation. Because of these frequent examinations, scientific knowledge becomes stronger, leading to its durability.

SC.912.N.3.1 Explain that a scientific theory is the culmination of many scientific investigations drawing together all the current evidence concerning a substantial range of phenomena; thus, a scientific theory represents the most powerful explanation scientists have to offer.

SC.912.E.6.4 Analyze how specific geologic processes and features are expressed in Florida and elsewhere.
Section 9 SC.912.N.1.7 Recognize the role of creativity in constructing scientific questions, methods and explanations.

SC.912.N.3.5 Describe the function of models in science, and identify the wide range of models used in science.

SC.912.E.6.4 Analyze how specific geologic processes and features are expressed in Florida and elsewhere.

SC.912.E.7.8 Explain how various atmospheric, oceanic, and hydrologic conditions in Florida have influenced and can influence human behavior, both individually and collectively.
