[ESS1] Earth's Place in the Universe

SCI-02.ESS1.01 Use information from several sources to provide evidence that Earth events can occur quickly or slowly.

Clarification Statement: Examples of events and timescales could include volcanic explosions and earthquakes, which happen quickly and erosion of rocks, which occurs slowly.
Disciplinary Core Ideas
ESS1.C: The History of Planet Earth -Some events happen very quickly; others occur very slowly, over a time period much longer than one can observe.

The Student ...
1 Beginning
... with help, demonstrates a partial understanding of some of the simpler details and processes (Score 2.0 content) and some of the more complex ideas and processes (Score 3.0 content).
  • little or no evidence that Earth events can occur quickly or slowly. 
  • may only use one source to provide the evidence.
2 Developing
... demonstrates no major errors or omissions regarding the simpler details and processes but exhibits major errors or omissions regarding the more complex ideas and processes (Score 3.0 content).
  • provide some evidence that Earth events can occur quickly or slowly. 
  • use more than one source to provide evidence.
