4th Grade (SCI) Science Standards [ESS3] Earth and Human Activity
SCI-04.ESS3.02 Generate and compare multiple solutions to reduce the impacts of natural
Earth processes on humans.
Clarification Statement: Examples of solutions could include designing flood control methods, earthquake, tornado, or hurricane
resistant buildings, and improving predictions and forecasts. Disciplinary Core Ideas A variety of hazards result from natural
processes (e.g., earthquakes, tsunamis,
volcanic eruptions). Humans cannot eliminate
the hazards but can take steps to reduce their
Testing a solution involves investigating how
well it performs under a range of likely
