SCI-04.ESS2.02 Analyze and interpret data from maps to describe patterns of Earth’s
Clarification Statement: Maps can include topographic maps of Earth’s land and ocean floor, as well as maps of the locations of
mountains, continental boundaries, volcanoes, and earthquakes. Disciplinary Core Ideas The locations of mountain ranges, deep ocean
trenches, ocean floor structures, earthquakes,
and volcanoes occur in patterns. Most
earthquakes and volcanoes occur in bands
that are often along the boundaries between
continents and oceans. Major mountain chains
form inside continents or near their edges.
Maps can help locate the different land and
water features areas of Earth.
