Performance Expectations

HS-ESS3-1   Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the availability of natural resources, occurrence of natural hazards, and changes in climate have influenced human activity.

HS-ESS3-6   Use a computational representation to illustrate the relationships among Earth systems and how those relationships are being modified due to human activity.
