Access Point #: SC.6.E.7.In.1

Recognize that heat is a flow of energy that moves through Earth’s land, air, and water in different ways, including conduction, convection, and radiation.
General Information
Number: SC.6.E.7.In.1
Category: Independent
Date Adopted or Revised: 02/08
Big Idea: Earth Systems and Patterns : The scientific theory of the evolution of Earth states that changes in our planet are driven by the flow of energy and the cycling of matter through dynamic interactions among the atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, geosphere, and biosphere, and the resources used to sustain human civilization on Earth.
