Pirates of the Caribbean
12.E.2b
Ages: 9, 10
Describe and explain short-term and long-term interactions of the Earth's components (e.g., earthquakes, types of erosion).
Illinois

Pirates of the Caribbean
1
Ages: 10, 11, 12
Apply scientific inquiries or technological designs to examine the large-scale dynamic forces, events and processes that affect Earth's land and populations, demonstrating tectonic movements related to earthquakes, tsunamies and volcanoes, or researching past, current and projected Earth system phenomena that affect populations.

12.4.32
Ages: 9
Understand that the surface of the earth changes. Know that some changes are due to slow processes (e.g., erosion, weathering), whereas others are due to sudden events (e.g., landslides, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, asteroid impacts).
Illinois

b
Ages: 9
Sudden causes: rare catastrophes (e.g., earthquakes, volcanic activity, asteroid impacts, floods).

12.7.70
Ages: 12
Understand that lithospheric plates constantly move at rates of centimeters per year in response to movements in the mantle. Understand that major geological events, such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and mountain building, result from these plate motions. Understand that over very longs periods of time (millions of years), old mountains wear down, but new ones arise from catastrophic volcanic and earthquake activity.

12.7.75
Ages: 12
Understand that that there are strata (layers) in many places in the crust of the earth. Understand that the crust of the earth is mostly igneous/metamorphic, with a relatively thin veneer of sedimentary rock layers in many, but not all places. Understand the principle of superposition: in a layered sedimentary sequence, the oldest rocks are usually at the bottom.

12.7.77
Ages: 12
Understand that the solid Earth is layered with a crust, under which is a hot convecting mantle, and that at the center of the earth is a dense, metallic core.
Illinois
Science
Pirates of the Caribbean
12.7.79
Ages: 12
Understand that the theory of plate tectonics explains the formation and movement of the earth's plates. Understand that the similar contours of the continents, seafloor spreading, and the location of frequent earthquakes and volcanoes provide evidence for plate tectonics.
Illinois
Science
Pirates of the Caribbean
12.7.80
Ages: 12
Understand that movements of the earth's continental and oceanic plates have affected the distribution of living things on Earth. Understand that major earthquake and volcanic activity can give rise to new mountain ranges, severing different species from each other, which from then on undergo independent lines of gradual change, each adapting to its own, new ecosystem.

12.11.31
Ages: 16
Understand the causes of ecosystem disruptions: changes in climate, human activity, introduction of a nonnative species, changes in population size, sudden natural disasters.
Illinois
Science
Pirates of the Caribbean
12.11.82
Ages: 16
Indicate that the earth's crust is made from mostly igneous and metamorphic materials and was formed as a result of partial melting of part of the mantle rock. Know that there is a thin layer of sedimentary rock on top in many places.
Illinois
Science
Pirates of the Caribbean
12.11.89
Ages: 16
Differentiate between the two main kinds of volcanoes: one kind with violent eruptions producing steep slopes and another kind with voluminous lava flows producing gentle slopes.
