Camille ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ Extremely Satisfied

Great assessments really helped me prepare the students for state testing and end-of-unit testing. The questions are good and align well with the standards.

All Earth processes are the result of energy flowing and matter cycling within and among the planet’s systems. Heat energy from the Sun, transmitted by radiation, is the primary source of energy that affects Earth’s weather and drives the water cycle. Uneven heating across Earth’s surface causes changes in density, which result in convection currents in water and air, creating patterns of atmospheric and oceanic circulation that determine regional and global climates.

Standards Assessed:


NGSS MS-ESS2-4 Develop a model to describe the cycling of water through Earth’s systems driven by energy from the sun and the force of gravity.

NGSS MS-ESS2-5. Collect data to provide evidence for how the motions and complex interactions of air masses result in changes in weather conditions.

NGSS MS ESS2-6  Develop and use a model to describe how.

unequal heating and rotation of the Earth cause patterns of atmospheric and oceanic circulation that determine regional climates.

NGSS MS-ESS3-5. Ask questions to clarify evidence of the factors that have caused the rise in global temperatures over the past century.
