                          Earth Science
                                   Overview
The standards for earth science establish the scientific inquiry skills and core content for all earth
science courses in South Carolina schools. Earth science courses should provide students with a
basic knowledge of the natural world that will serve as the foundation for more advanced
secondary and postsecondary courses and will also give them the science skills necessary for
earth-science oriented technical careers.

In order for students to achieve these goals, earth science courses must include inquiry-based
instruction, allowing students to engage in problem solving, decision making, critical thinking,
and applied learning. Teachers, schools, and districts should use the academic standards for earth
science to make decisions concerning the structure and content of all their earth science courses
and to determine how these courses may go beyond the standards. These decisions will involve
choices regarding additional content, activities, and learning strategies and will depend on the
objectives of the individual courses.

All earth science courses are laboratory courses (minimum of 30 percent hands-on investigation).
Earth science laboratories will need to be stocked with all of the materials and apparatuses
necessary to complete investigations.




                                                                                                    1

                                 Scientific Inquiry

Standard ES-1: The student will demonstrate an understanding of how scientific
               inquiry and technological design, including mathematical
               analysis, can be used appropriately to pose questions, seek
               answers, and develop solutions.

Indicators
ES-1.1 Apply established rules for significant digits, both in reading scientific instruments and
        in calculating derived quantities from measurement.
ES-1.2 Use appropriate laboratory apparatuses, technology, and techniques safely and
        accurately when conducting a scientific investigation.
ES-1.3 Use scientific instruments to record measurement data in appropriate metric units that
        reflect the precision and accuracy of each particular instrument.
ES-1.4 Design a scientific investigation with appropriate methods of control to test a
        hypothesis (including independent and dependent variables), and evaluate the designs
        of sample investigations.
ES-1.5 Organize and interpret the data from a controlled scientific investigation by using
        mathematics (including calculations in scientific notation, formulas, and dimensional
        analysis), graphs, tables, models, diagrams, and/or technology.
ES-1.6 Evaluate the results of a controlled scientific investigation in terms of whether they
        refute or verify the hypothesis.
ES-1.7 Evaluate conclusions based on qualitative and quantitative data (including the impact of
        parallax, instrument malfunction, or human error) on experimental results.
ES-1.8 Evaluate a technological design or product on the basis of designated criteria (including
        cost, time, and materials).
ES-1.9 Communicate and defend a scientific argument or conclusion.
ES-1.10 Use appropriate safety procedures when conducting investigations.

                                      Solid Earth

Standard ES-3: Students will demonstrate an understanding of the internal and
               external dynamics of solid Earth.

Indicators
ES-3.1 Summarize theories and evidence of the origin and formation of Earth’s systems by
       using the concepts of gravitational force and heat production.
ES-3.2 Explain the differentiation of the structure of Earth’s layers into a core, mantle, and
       crust based on the production of internal heat from the decay of isotopes and the role of
       gravitational energy.
ES-3.3 Summarize theory of plate tectonics (including the role of convection currents, the
       action at plate boundaries, and the scientific evidence for the theory).
ES-3.4 Explain how forces due to plate tectonics cause crustal changes as evidenced in
       earthquake activity, volcanic eruptions, and mountain building.
ES-3.5 Analyze surface features of Earth in order to identify geologic processes (including
       weathering, erosion, deposition, and glaciation) that are likely to have been responsible
       for their formation.
ES-3.6 Explain how the dynamic nature of the rock cycle accounts for the interrelationships
       among igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks.
ES-3.7 Classify minerals and rocks on the basis of their physical and chemical properties and
       the environment in which they were formed.
ES-3.8 Summarize the formation of ores and fossil fuels and the impact on the environment
       that the use of these fuels has had.

Standard ES-6: Students will demonstrate an understanding of the dynamic
               relationship between Earth’s conditions over geologic time and
               the diversity of its organisms.

Indicators
ES-6.1 Summarize the conditions of Earth that enable the planet to support life.
ES-6.2 Recall the divisions of the geologic time scale and illustrate the changes (in complexity
       and/or diversity) of organisms that have existed across these time units.
ES-6.3 Summarize how fossil evidence reflects the changes in environmental conditions on
       Earth over time.
ES-6.4 Match dating methods (including index fossils, ordering of rock layers, and radiometric
       dating) with the most appropriate application for estimating geologic time.
ES-6.5 Infer explanations concerning the age of the universe and the age of Earth on the basis
       of scientific evidence.
