  4. 4. Standards Draft Formation of Earth Materials p.46 <ul><li>In prior years, students learned that water plays an essential role in our daily weather. In grades 4-5, students learn how Earth materials change and how they can be used for various purposes. They learn that Earth materials include solid rocks and soil, water, and gases of the atmosphere. People use many of these materials as resources to meet their needs. One of the most important Earth resources is soil, since people depend on fertile soil to grow food. The processes that produce soils offer an excellent opportunity for students to understand how Earth materials change gradually over time, and provide a solid grounding for later study of landforms and large-scale changes of Earth ’s surface that students will learn in middle school. </li></ul>How does this connect to Land & Water kit?
