SC.8.N.3.2 Explain why theories may be modified but are rarely discarded.
SC.8.N.1.6 Understand that scientific investigations involve the collection of relevant empirical evidence, the use of logical reasoning, and the application of imagination in devising hypotheses, predictions, explanations and models to make sense of the collected evidence.
SC.7.N.2.1 Identify an instance from the history of science in which scientific knowledge has changed when new evidence or new interpretations are encountered.
SC.8.E.5.7 Compare and contrast the properties of objects in the Solar System including the Sun, planets, and moons to those of Earth, such as gravitational force, distance from the Sun, speed, movement, temperature, and atmospheric conditions.
SC.8.E.5.9.1 Explain the impact of objects in space on each other including: 1. the Sun on the Earth including seasons and gravitational attraction
SC.8.E.5.9.2 Explain the impact of objects in space on each other including: 2. the Moon on the Earth, including phases, tides, and eclipses, and the relative position of each body.
