8.B.1. Leaving a Record: Explain how sedimentary rock is formed (embedding plant and animal
remains and leaving a record of the sequence in which plants and animals disappeared)
Fossils are records that show scientists today what the animals were like then and how they have
changed over time. The designs of buildings a long time ago such as the Colosseum and The Leaning
Tower of Pisa are sorts of records that show present civilizations to learn more about the cultures of
There are also magazines and
records that show a list of architects
and what they have built
8.D.2 Reqular and Predictable Motion
8.D.2. Regular and Predictable Motion: Identify and explain celestial phenomena using the regular
and predictable motion of objects in the solar system
Astronomers use the predicted motion of Earth and meteors to determine if any space debris will
hit our world. Architects use the predicted motion of the ground (if it will crumble or not) to build
structures that can withstand these motions.
They also predict ways that the building may fail and
construct contingencies to accommodate for it.
8.D.1. Change Over Time
8.D.1. Change Over Time: Recognize and describe that
evolutionary change in species over time occurs as a
result of genetic variation in organisms and
Species needs to change over time to adapt to
changes in the environment. Architects need to
adapt their designs to the environment around
them and the specifications of the client.
There are also different types of
buildings for different types of
8.C.1. Heat and State of Matter
8.C.1. Describe how the motion of atoms and
molecules in solids, liquids, and gases changes as
heat energy is increased or decreased.
The state of matter of atoms change when energy or heat is
applied. Architects need to make sure that the materials they
use for their structures can withstand certain levels of heat.
An architect must be able to adapt his design(s) to
the heat of the environment, so the procedure in
building his design may be different and more
8.A.2.Laws of Motion
8.A.2. Identify and relate formal ideas
(Newton’s Laws) about the interaction
of force and motion to real world
Newton’s laws are used to determine motion and reactions of certain movements. Designs have to
be able to stand these reactions.
If an architect wants his designs to
have motion, he must consider
8.B.1. Transfer of Heat
8.B.1. Describe and cite evidence that heat can be
transferred by conduction, convection and
Heat is transferred through liquids, by
touching, and indirectly without touching.
Architects need to decide if their structures
should be able to transfer heat or not.
If the design has to transfer heat, then the
materials required must be able to withstand
8.B.1. Environmental Impact
8.B.1. Recognize and explain how human
activities can accelerate or magnify many
naturally occurring changes.
Activities such as littering and driving can
harm the environment. Some architectural
designs are eco-friendly and doesn’t harm
the environment, called “green
Regular architecture usually takes
up a lot of space and the process it
takes harm the environment.
