This resource supports science standards for grades 6-12. This assignment is based on the Virginia Standards of Learning ES.1c: The student will plan and conduct investigations in which scales, diagrams, maps, charts, graphs, tables, and profiles are constructed and interpreted. ES.11c: The student will investigate and understand that oceans are complex, interactive physical, chemical, and biological systems and are subject to long- and short-term variations. Key concepts include systems interactions (density differences, energy transfer, weather, and climate). Sci6.3: The student will investigate and understand the role of solar energy in driving most natural processes within the atmosphere, the hydrosphere, and on the Earth's surface. Sci6.5: The student will investigate and understand the unique properties and characteristics of water and its roles in the natural and human-made environment. Sci6.6: The student will investigate and understand the properties of air and the structure and dynamics of the Earth's atmosphere.
