Standard(s) Taught

Differentiate among radiation, conduction, and convection, the three
mechanisms by which heat is transferred through Earth’s system.
Define a problem from the sixth grade curriculum, use appropriate
reference materials to support scientific understanding, plan and carry
out scientific investigation of various types, such as systematic
observations or experiments, identify variables, collect and organize
data, interpret data in charts, tables, and graphics, analyze
information, make predictions, and defend conclusions

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students will:
• differentiate the three mechanisms by which thermal energy is transferred
through the Earth’s systems:
       – Radiation, Conduction, Convection

• investigate radiation, conduction, and convection in terms of their
influence on Earth’s systems (geosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere)

o thermal energy is transferred on Earth from a warmer substance to a
cooler substance from direct contact through conduction

o thermal energy is transferred in the Earth’s atmosphere and hydrosphere
through convection currents

o the transfer of energy in the form of radiation from the Sun to the Earth
through the atmosphere
